Physical Postcards, Lois Taylor - Exploring Improvisation in Performance
www.physicalpostcards.co.uk

Building on the Physical Postcards practice of sending messages from the body, the session will offer a delicious warm-up for the body. Through structured improvisation, we will then explore a call & response between our thoughts, our bodies & our observations of each other & texts written & offered, to find an open & free channel of in the moment improvisation. These events are always playful, unexpected & utterly unique.
