What moves us and why? There is deep inspiration and rigor in a practice of improvisation that posits vulnerability at its heart. Developing the skills to care for, engage, respect and respond to that state of vulnerability gives life and depth to improvisation, making it powerful and transformative.

Move, Touch & Be Moved workshop with Kirstie Simson will include facilitated exercises, open time for play and exploration, movement scores, observations and discussion. Much of the work will be experienced through partnering and connection with others, balanced with solo work and time for processing and reflection. With an aim to develop and tune kinesthetic and perceptual awareness as a means of expanding experience and the grasp of what is available to us when we move. Kirstie Simson will share her extensive experience of dance improvisation in this workshop. She will share what has kept her inspired in her practices for the last three decades. Kirstie draws from her knowledge of contact improvisation, dance techniques, the Alexander technique, aikido, meditation and her extensive experience of improvisation in performance. Her work explores the huge potential of the body’s response to the primal urge to move, inspired by the energy released through human interaction, physical challenge and a daring to go beyond inherent ideas of limitation.
