Textures of Touch

This series of classes aim to bring heightened states of body awareness and spatial sensitivity in collaboration with perception- and energy-play. Working primarily with skin, muscles and bones, we explore how our sensing and tuning can bring them into deeper dialogue and inform-influence-inspire our connection with other bodies and our surroundings. This leads us to research the interplay between the outside-in and inside-out and along the soft/firm spectrum, all to discover more diverse textures of touch and to find greater interstices of intimacy.

Please bring your journals for some writing, and come with a preparedness to bring in your knowledge base in one moment and with a willingness to abandon it in the next moment.
For this series, I access and bring in a broad range of practices and approaches from the somatic, martial and performing arts–and principles from contact improvisation in particular.
