Journeys into the landscape of body and imagination!
This workshop will explore different resources within the body and space for generating movement and material while at times using voice, touch and spoken word.
This is for anyone interested in improvising and engaging in various creative processes that explore communication and conversations beyond the verbal but at times inclusive of it.
We will explore and develop our sense-ability skills, receiving information, noticing and responding- giving attention to detail in order to open and expand the ways we perceive things- delving into the ideas of ‘seeing’ beyond sight, ‘listening’ beyond the auditory and being open to what is ‘moving us’.
Sara is inspired by creating the conditions and space that helps to liberate us in the dance experience and in our body-embracing what is present as being enough.
Sara’s professional dance journey started out when she graduated with a BA (Hons) Dance 15 years ago.She has performed at -Yorkshire Dance Center, Bretton Hall Sculpture park, The Roundhouse-London, Contact Theater & The Green Room-Manchester, Hebden Bridge Arts Festival, Forgotten Land- India. Other projects have included Festivals, Churches, Cathedrals, Moor lands, Cliffs and Mills. She teaches in different contexts such as schools, the community, health and well being settings . Her dance life as it was got interrupted for several years when her health took a turn for the worse and she found herself dealing with paralysis, being disabled and in a lot of pain. This lead her on a path of recovery, redirecting her life, resulting in her engaging and training in integrated therapies and other worldly dance and healing traditions and practices. She then completed her Masters of the Arts: Dance and Somatic Well- Being -connections to the living body. All of this contributed to reinventing herself as a dancer and culminates in the multi- disciplined, multi-faceted practices and approaches which she teachers in now.
