Character Transformation-physical journeys

This workshop melds aspects from Laban’s Movement Analysis, spatial analysis, and somatic practice with creative movement. Offering accessible and explorative exercises particular attention will be given to micro physical adjustments and transitions of body shape in space. Focus is on character transformation and engages with physical journeys made between resting points. Celebrating the unique movement language and experience of each participant the workshop is an open-ended study and discussion is welcomed.
