Spring 2017:

Landscapes of Embodied Interaction
With Helen Poynor 

People moving ‘independently’, dancers in a studio or pedestrians in a town square, create a constantly changing landscape, which they are both affected by and contribute to.

Non-stylised movement scores will be used to explore the inter-relationship of moving beings in space.

Space is encountered materially, moving through levels and layers, from upright to the floor, from close to the body to the spaces between bodies.

Moving incorporating breathing, sensing and seeing strengthens the capacity to be in touch with oneself and simultaneously open and responsive to the environment. This fosters an embodied sense of presence in relation to others, in performance and in daily life.

The Prepared Body 
With Deborah Hay 

The body is capable of so much more than what it can do. For example, sound coming from the piano was more or less constant until John Cage created the prepared piano by introducing different objects into its’ body. These components altered the piano’s harmonics. Similarly, questions will be applied to our bodies to alter the harmonics of movement through the practice of performance and choreography.
