A 1-Day workshop will Leila McMillan working with Flying Low, solo and group Improvisation linked to her current choreographic practice.

"An opportunity to research, investigate, play, and expand our physical possibilities. We will begin with a focus on how to activate and charge the body to arrive in a fully alert and energetic state.  We will spiral in and out of the earth, learn how to challenge gravity, to fall, to rise, and to command our body to the fullest. Through improvisation we will work with speed, physical/emotional states and imagery. The practice will pull on tools from Flying Low and Solo Improvisation– encouraging you to be skilfully true to who you are through your physicality."
