This weekend intensive will look at strategies for supporting physical performance through an increased level of self-awareness and embodiment. We will employ structures for illuminating this process through ways of observing and being observed and engaging in practice based discourse. Facilitated by Jo Blowers, Paula Hampson and Mary Prestidge, three members of Liverpool Improvisation Collective.

The event welcomes people who wish to extend their professional practice as well as for those with less experience and interested in movement and/or performance.
