A one day movement laboratory and space for questioning with Charlie Morrissey
This workshop focuses on notions of invitation and availability in the body. These ideas are explored as cultivated states within and through which to widen the potential of our moving and composing body/minds.
The workshop is a combination of practical exercise and improvisational structures for exploration.
Participants in this workshop will also be invited to a sharing of some new work by Charlie Morrissey and Katye Coe on Friday 18th October.
The workshop costs £45 (employed) £40 (self employed or part time) £35 (unwaged)
