Ways of Being Together – A movement workshop led by Jo Fong
This session is suitable for people who love to move and are interested in moving together: dancers, actors, circus folk, pilates teachers, Japanese drummers, martial arts… experts and non-experts. Choreographer Jo Fong leads a warm-up followed by pair work, group work and games that she has devised and developed as part of her creative process. Working from the inside of the body to the outside and using guided improvisation, the process incorporates a sense of play and experimentation. Jo is interested in spontaneity and authentic encounters. The interaction is live and people adapt, make room, save, lead, follow, get out of the way, care, grow an energy and awareness, whether that be spacial, a shared joke or about the knowledge of what each human carries with them.
Suitable for all aged 16+.
