An alternative contemporary dance class and on-going research investigating the act of motion from internal impulse to external expression. The work utilises a hybrid of forms to encourage deep awareness and understanding of the body and the body in motion, essentially motivated by interpretations of GUT, including general unified theory, viscera, centre of gravity, courage, instinct, intuition, revelation and vulnerability. The practice is a progression of energy cultivation, hands-on investigation, somatic improvisation, technical experiments and methods of falling, flying and inversion, culminating in dynamic, three-dimensional phrase work. The class is an intimate, animated arena for physical and artistic exploration, cultivating sensate virtuosity, kinetic efficiency, physical perception, interactive intelligence and performance-level dancing.
