This training runs from 10 till 14 December 2018.
Imotion with Jos Baker will start with a class focussing on using gravity and momentum to find ways of moving into and across the floor, with particular emphasis on being off-balance. This is a challenging and fast-paced class with a spirit of exploration and risk-taking, both physically and performatively.
The workshop in the afternoon will then move on to look at a range of ways to create diverse material, some of which are rooted in the work of Peeping Tom and some of which Jos Baker has developed through his own practice. It will also explore types of performativity, characterisation and the ways in which these relate to making new material.
