Class Description | Morning Class, 22 - 26 February 2021 (with Petra Söör) | ONLINE
The classes Anne-Gaëlle and Petra will facilitate are influenced by their shared work as practicing dancers, makers and facilitators. Over the course of the past year they have developed a way of furthering collaboration physically despite distance during the pandemic.
These sessions will offer a score-based practice with attention to listening, attending to and through the body. At the same time inviting the question “what is possible”? through allowing dancing to hold space for asking questions, coming to understand differently through the exploration of personal and collective movement practice, by journeying in sensation, following what is emerging in the moment. How can a sense of care and dancing in itself create a space, with the potential to include? Can this perhaps be an alchemical space in which something new can form - new poetics and materialities - expanding what is possible in ways of being together through dancing in these times?
Anne-Gaëlle Thiriot is based between London and Marseille. She is and will most likely always be an avid dancer with a curious mind. She strives to create nurturing environments, develop democratic ways of making work, empower of the voices we don’t hear enough from, and a sense of self within the collective. Her practice involves teaching, improvising, collaborating, performing, dancing, devising, making dances or performances, acting, singing, curating, lecturing, cooking, gardening, picnicking, trekking, swimming, camping, and many other ways to relate to others and her environment. Her main interest is to study movement, composition and perception, and to develop an aesthetic of function and relation; how we move to fulfill needs or make things happen, and in the journeys between feeling, sensing, thinking and creating clear spatial patterns.
