My sessions will evolve from the physical tasks of getting in and out of the floor with speed and grace, focusing on a realeased way of moving the body using momentum and weight. The second half of the workshop will involve a lot of sensing and tuning in skills to be able to gather a group mind. With this heightened sense we can improvise with timing and dynamics to make engaging spontaneous choreography.
I can still remember the deep felt sense of satisfaction I received from being part of the 2015 TCDL. On all levels, both professional and personal, as the experience was heart opening as well as being creatively progressive and stimulating. I look forward to join again in the hinterland of Northern NSW to make and share art and to celebrate dance. Kimberley McIntyre
