THE CLASS: THE INSTRUMENT – The Instrument teaching is a physical practice through the articulation of movement in time, space and the imagination. The classes engage with composition in real time, encouraging flow and bodily wisdom as a pathway to dance making and performance. Involving attentiveness, musicality, collective and personal experiences; we work with presence, choice, vision and the interplay between movement and image. Engaging these elements in the process of dance making, the work takes its fascination in relationships between people, environments and choreographic narratives.
