We will be gently tuning into awareness of our body, senses, flow movement and aliveness through a somatic approach. With guided tasks and games we’ll explore the spontaneous dance emerging from physical contact and interaction with one another. We’ll gradually create an open space for improvised movement, touch, intimacy and expression. We’ll become artistic collaborators, researching with our body, communicating through the skin, giving and receiving weight and intentions, creating together.
Tchivett has been a performer, dance maker and improviser since 2011 and completed their Choreography Masters in Berlin in 2018. Their performance and choreographic practice combine sculptural, somatic and drag elements. They have a background in cotemporary dance, performance art and martial arts, and they regularly teach butoh and contact improvisation.
They also took part in various dance research and performance collectives with a focus on queer culture, feminist politics and self-organization.
