Spring Workshop 2009

5 Ways to Walk Towards Yourself
With Jenna Agate, Trevor Timms and Angus Balbernie
Tuesday 14th - Saturday 18th April 2009
10.00am to 5.00pm daily

Another opportunity to participate in this Landscape and Body workshop.

You are invited to join in a week of "active investigation" into landscape, performance, memory, body and narrative.

The week will offer daily, guided warm-up explorations of the body's expressive potential that then moves out into physical investigations in nature and landscape.

By moving through the many-layered textures of landscape, and by observing and expressing different horizons, we shall bring the environment and the body together with our thoughts as a form of "expressive landscape" for individual and group exploration.

We shall work with body and mind with daily walking and working in landscape. We shall move and create in the studio to investigate our actions and memories, shaping the "findings' of our active memories into narratives that shape "the other", a flexible proposition about expressing our inner and outer selves.

We shall work to create "bodies of memory" that contain our stories; stories of seeing, thinking, touching, remembering, moving, creating, as a person, an artist, and as part of a landscape. If landscape is grounded, flexible and detailed, can we be too?

The week will end with a sharing of material, in the diversity of forms expressed.

Anyone interested in dance, performance, music, visual, tactile, sonic and all related disciplines, is invited to join us in this research week.

Angus Balbernie, co-director of "SomaTerra:Para", an ongoing research project investigating the body, landscape and the tuning of body-in-landscape will join with Jenna Agate (choreographer) and Trevor Timms (psychotherapist and bodyworker) at The Studio on the Green to lead this 5 day workshop open to all.
