Class Description | Monday Night Improvisation, 8 March 2021 | ONLINE
"Where does imagery and imagination arise from? Can we delve into poetic imagery and simultaneously stay awake and present? We will use our senses as a tool to navigate, finding new dimensions and pressures of space and time.
Drawing from my own practice of improvisation, somatics and Aikido we will journey through explorations, working on our own, with a partner and as part of a group. Through moving, listening and speaking we will practice our immediate experience of imagery, imagination, awakeness and presence." Rosalie Wahlfrid
