A workshop combining free improvised movement with making, using fabric, threads and yarns, crayons, inks and pens and found natural materials.
Moving with the questions “What is our place in this world? What is our relationship to the other- than-human?” and allowing our conscious and unconscious attitudes and beliefs to emerge and evolve and find expression in making, crafting, improvised movement and sounding. This is a fluid process and people can experiment with and use different materials and techniques. Opening up our awareness to each other and the space, working individually and together in movement, with our created and found pieces and with ourselves, I invite people to co-create installations: to experience improvised collaboration and new ways of being together with all our diversity.
Bring yourself, your stories, your passions to share and create.
I will provide tools and a variety of materials such as found natural items,. fabric, card, inks, thread, wools and pens. Please bring your own found objects if you would like to.
I am an environmental campaigning grandmother with a background in teaching and homeopathy. I have worked with Amerta Movement for 30 years, studying with Suprapto Suryodarma in Java and Britain, and this movement practice permeates every aspect of my life. I have co-hosted movement workshops at Avebury since 2008, as well as groups in my home locality.
In my work, I like to weave inspiration with everyday life, dream-world with practical-world, words with dance, sky with earth and to try and live in awareness of interbeing with others.
I am interested in bringing Amerta movement art into teaching and environmental action, and in co-creating with others an atmosphere where all can flourish.
