If your body could speak, what would it say?
Step into a deeply rooted expressive arts methodology that allows the body to speak through movement, drawing, writing and vocal improvisation. Accessing personal body mythology within a supportive and therapeutic environment, we will play with improvised movement as a means to generate source material for set choreography. Participants will learn the Halprin approach to mindful witnessing and giving aesthetic feedback through inter-modal arts processes.
