Event description
Groundwork is a journey of movement migrations through natural landscapes. Guided by Rosalind Holgate Smith & Matt Birch

About this Event

In Groundwork we invite on a journey of movement migrations and meanderings through natural landscapes that will bring us into contact with the ground, the landscape and each other. As though born again we will return to our primary senses to explore through movement, touch and play, our evolutionary growth from basic organisms, to animals and humans. This is a journey of discovery to find more sensual, receptive ways of being in the world and more efficient ways of moving through it.

We will begin in water where we will investigate what it means to yield and be held. As we then resurface on land, we will investigate the increasing strength and mobility along our spinal axis and the organisation of our limbs to gracefully transition in and out of the ground. Rising up to vertical dimensions we will explore crawling, climbing and running as a pack, sensing the mechanics and rhythm of each movement. In this process we will further engage our vision and look up and around at how it feels to meet, discover our desires and interact with other beings from a place of earthbound sensuality.
