ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
We will tune into the possibility of suspending and expanding into different layers of the physical and spacious self. Working with images is an essential part of SRT. These images often are creating different kinds of spaces inside the body. How deep inside and how far outside can we suspend into space and how may this affect the way we dance together? How does working with imagery affect our imagination when we make dances?
We include the practise and generosity of witnessing, watching and being watched, seeing and being seen. How does being seen support and affect our dance?
Writing will be part of our practise, as another way to tune into the subconscious, to reveal, to release, sometimes to remember and in other moments to forget (for-get). Releasing into writing into releasing writing. How does working with imagery affect our imagination when we write?
What kind of dances and writings are born out of the space of stillness? What arises, what deepens, what aligns? What is revealed in layers of the self and in relationship, between us?

“Laressa Dickey’s debut full-length collection of poetry originates deep within the spine. In a language more felt than fathomed, Dickey choreographs sounds and images in swirling, sinewy gestures, … … They are poems to be felt with the whole body, ankles and all.” Excerpt from a review about Bottomland, by Sarah Suksuri
