With Otto Ramstad
In this somatic/improvisation/site workshop we invite participants to enter their animal-like appetites and childlike curiosities for physical investigation through engagement of the sensing and feeling body in action. We will combine embodied anatomical studies to make dances from inside out and outside in. The work focuses on the artist as performer and their role in conveying content while understanding their audience. We will head out into the world and investigate empathy and the physicality of space by building dances in the public realm using a variety of formats, including various one on one performances. Together we will explore the Bodycartography canon to cultivate a vitality of presence, embodied intelligence, creativity and organization to put guts in our dancing and our mind in our bodies.
