Lucia Walker

Friday 29th June – Sunday 1st July 2012; 10:00-17:00

Becoming more conscious of aspects of our experience, including sensation, vision, mood, idea and intention, we will explore how to bring more depth to our dancing and more presence to our performance. Lucia draws on principles from Alexander Technique, Contact Improvisation and present time Composition. We will investigate what inspires us to move, how to remain open to both choice and co-incidence, and how to offer or play within scores for practice and for performance.
