In this workshop by Georgie Goater and Maikki Palm, you will be guided to warm up the body's inner spaces into warming up the shared space.
We will explore the experiencing body as it relates to the perceived outer and inner spaces through movement and stillness, and how we meet different embodiments within a web of shifting relations. We invite the imagination and conversation as tools to encounter the gestures of space, self and other through witnessing and doing. We play with proximities and boundaries to be re-claimed. Georgie and Maikki are interested in the intuitive body in dialogue with these textures.
All experience levels are invited to this workshop.
