Moved Series… Autumn 2015: Moving Matter with Charlie Morrissey
This workshop plays with re-imagining the body in ways which might release different possibilities for moving in space – in solo movement and in relation to one or more partners.
A series of exercises and scores through which to experience the body in movement in relation to the space around us on micro and macro levels. Come and dive into two days of physical and perceptual adventuring.
