Choreographic Process with Annie Lok
Wednesday 25th January 2017 in PR-SC-G03 Surrey Club big hall, 3-6pm
The studio will be accessible from 2.30pm if people would like to come and warm-up.
The session draws on Annie’s continuing work and training in Contact Improvisation, Improvisation, Release-based technique and Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy and her work as a contemporary dance maker (choreographer and performer) for the last 20 years. Dialogues around the politics of health will underpin explorations around her choreographic process and her most recent work Metaphors We Live By.
Some time will be spent focussing on tuning awareness to sensations to help develop connectivity between thinking, feeling and seeing. Looking inward and outward and exploring the relationship between these perceptions with consideration of the private body and the body in public or in ‘performance’.
The session will include elements of experiential anatomy and involve some touch and simple partnering work designed to activate reflective and critical dialogue with our bodies in movement.
