May Improv taught by Helga Deasy

Thursday 2nd and Thursday 9th May

In these dance workshops we will nurture the imagination of the body. Working with the breath, touch and connectivity within the body and into the ground we will open to a state of authenticity and presence. Drawing from elements of Laban Movement Analysis / choreological practice we will explore the expressivity arising from sensation and intention. Through partnering, solo time and group work we will play with initiating and responding, witnessing and being seen and move towards improvised choreography.

and Lisa Cliffe

Thursday 16th, Thursday 23rd and Thursday 30th May


You are invited to Lisa Cliffe’s February sessions in the Mirror Room at the Firkin Crane. 

Take time to:
Awaken the senses;
Stroke the buds of curiosity through movement, writing and drawing;
Contribute to a connective field of listening and sharing. 
The sessions will offer an experience of Lisa’s practice methods.
