Event description

Description

Ambient Jam is a multi-media dance improvisation which is uniquely sensitive to place, context and people. The improvisation is forged by 25 years of collaboration between a team of artists and people with profound disabilities, who are adept at working with uncertainty, negative capability, and the mindfulness of the present moment.

Ambient Jam entails improvisation as a way of social dreaming, that foregrounds kinaesthetic intelligence and sensory perception. Unfolding live art and ‘deep hanging out’, wordless stories emerge and landscapes shift in direct response to the qualities and energies of different sites.

For the festival we draw upon visual object relation cards from the archives, including the prints and metal point drawings of artist Juliet Scott, created in response to the cards. There will be opportunities to observe, relax in the presence of it, take part; watch from a distance and come and go as you want.

“I came to Ambient Jam with a participant who I support… and I was just blown away by the beautiful energy that filled the room…” Cathie Sutton, support worker, Access for Living

The improvisation is open to all ages from 0-100+; people with profound disabilities and learning disabilities are very welcome.

You can book to take part in the Jam itself or book as a general attender of the event. There may be opportunities to take part on the day, dependent on numbers.
