About the practice
A morning practice for the dance artist that engages with the practical, the magical and the imaginary. Using the bodies we have TODAY we will explore methods for opening both physically and methaphorically. Simultaneously employing and questioning contemporary technique, improvisation, durational tasks to cultivate an expanded physical and energetic body.
