Through my time as a dancer, I have been inspired by the first movements of modern dance and its connections with nature that holds the hope of eternity. I explore the spirit of a dance that sustains its approach by methods of working with the body coming from German expressionism in Europe and the original Butoh from Japan.
I have been leading many different series of Dance Movement Classes and facilitating indoor and outdoor workshops/in London and Oxford.
I offer invitations open to dancers and non dancers looking to find space for practice and working with the body creatively and imaginatively. My practice is influenced by a number of diverse approaches, including yoga ,Qui Gong, Nogushi Gymnastics, somatic Dance, Mindfulness in movement.
These are dance invitations that follow the inspiration that moves me at the time: "Finding dance in the speed of the environment" was the latest series of dance movement sessions I lead in 2018 at the dance studio of the Jericho Community Centre in Oxford for over a year.
As part of the weekly sessions, I lead Body Laboratory I called Body Live Labs in which dance and sound come together becoming the creators of the space. So fortunate to have being joined by great sound makers from the Oxford Improvisers and all the work being documented by the great photography of Andrew Bell.
Each session is unique and can be a group of 6, 4, 3 , or one to one and in collaboration with great and experienced Improvisers.
Human Landscape are a series of Outdoor Workshops where dancers and non dancers are invited to explore in Nature. We aim to find the connections and subtle changes of the landscape that exist inside each of us and in relation to the environment in which we live and move from.
