WEEK 2    

11.45 - 13.45

 

RIVERS & ROOTS
landing into body landscapes

 

The curves and surfaces of our body that invite rolling, tumbling and falling. Places to push off from, anchor into and launch out of. Taking inspiration from climbing, and the subtle movement play of tango, we unpick anatomical puzzles and muddle ourselves in movement, finding rivers and roots.

18.15 - 19.15

FALLOW TIME

Fallow time is the winter of a crop, left unseeded the ground consolidates invisible energy, ready for spring.

In these sessions we will shed the layers piled on in the heat of the day, prepare for rest, and restore for the onward journey. Each session will respond to the needs of the day; space to consolidate, land and integrate.
