Spring and Summer Workshops 2013

Body in Flow – Somatic movement explorations

Weekend 16 & 17 March
Jubilee Hall, Bedminster, Bristol
Costs £80 / £65 concs.

A workshop based on Movement Ritual, a set of natural and organic movement sequences developed by American dance pioneer Anna Halprin. We explore a variety of the primarily floor-based sequences and let them flow into creative dances, bringing attention to physical, emotional and imaginal levels of awareness. Movement experiences live on in drawings - drawings inspire movement (art materials provided).

"An inspiration to move, play, dance, enjoy and love my body. I developed a curiosity to find out what my body can do rather than getting stuck in what it can’t." Participant

Immerse yourself in nature, disconnect from the demands of civilisation, let your instincts run feral and celebrate your creativity. Choose to playfully respond to the environment with making, creating, song, words, grooves, movement, mapping or questing. Enjoy open fire cooking, wild adventure and group experience as well as time to just ‘be’.

Seriously recommended to everyone wanting to deeply engage with their playful and creative side. Previous participants include people working in the arts, social engagement, therapies, education, outdoor learning, ecological practices and anyone who enjoys a wild stomp and howl in the woods under the light of the full moon.
