Danspace Project

The Presence of Space:
In this intimate two-day workshop we will start with touch to facilitate awareness of internal and external space and as a means of warming up our sensed communication capacities. From there we will work in duet forms that activate the dynamic presence of space. This will lead to solo practices built from the process of touching, dancing together and listening with each other. We will work with sensory and conceptual space, activating physical imagination through energetic modes of moving and communicating with each other. We will go from there.
