somatic movement, costume and performance
Somatic Movement and Costume Improvisation Class
Monday 26th November, 6.30-8.30pm 2018, £5 drop in
Siobhan Davies Studio, London
Part of Independent Dance’s Monday Night Improvisation Class.
This class invites participants to wear, move and create in costumes that generate specific body-mind experiences.
How does what we wear
affect how we move and perceive
and what we create and perform?
As part of Sally’s current research into Somatic Movement and Costume, these workshops invite participants to wear, move and create in costumes that generate specific body-mind experiences. Costumes act in a similar way to ‘touch’ – becoming ‘portals of perception’. The costumes will not only awaken sensory experiences, heightening our awareness, but it will also fuel our creativity and imagination – bringing participants into the territory of improvisation and performance.
Live music will accompany some of the workshop programmes, supporting and informing the ‘Somatic Costumes’ and the improvisations that emerge. Costumes used in these workshops have been created and designed in collaboration with Sandra Arroniz Lacunza (2011-current), Carolina Rieckhof (2011-current) and Marta Jiménez Salcedo (Feb – May 2014). Christina Hardinge and Oliver Cronk also created costumes for the December 2013 workshop. We also collaborated with amazing photographer Luna Pérez Visairas and dancers with somatic costumes in the natural environment in 2014.
