Here’s a workshop series that I am leading in Melbourne Australia at one of Melbourne’s leading edge cultural institutions:
NATURAL STATES – Embodiment Studies & Exploration
2012 Workshop Series with Llewellyn Wishart
Natural States is an ongoing workshop series focused on in-depth embodiment studies & exploration. The workshops follow a developmental line of inquiry continually returning to an organic felt-sense of being-presence – our own natural state of movement function and expression. The primary vehicles for these explorations will be: Body-Mind Centering® theory and practice; Contact Improvisation, Yoga and Meditation; Solo and Ensemble Dancework. This pathway will be supported by philosophy and practice from contemplative traditions that honour direct experience, awareness and self liberated states.
Times & Dates: Mondays 7:00-9:00 pm Autumn Series: 16 April – 14 May; Winter Series: 30 July – 27 August; Spring Series: 24 Sept – 22 October.
Venue: Dancehouse (Gallery Space) 150 Princes Street, North Carlton VIC.
Fees: $90.00 (Full) $75.00 (Conc./Dancehouse/Ausdance Members).
