Penny Chivas | Footprint (working title)

Penny Chivas Summer 2022

30 May - 3 June

This week is a continuation of a work revolving around our changing climate, natural world and a search for support to continue with parallels between shifting landscapes due to extraction and ecoanxiety, and a possible return to a deeper connection with Earth to find more support. Penny will work with collaborators Mona Kastell and Great Snakes and begin to sketch movement and text in relation both sound and ecoscenography in how this may be with an emphasis on both imagery and the visceral.

Company Class | Tuesday 31 May 09:45 - 10:55

Penny will lead class on Tuesday, with an aim to be outdoors. A largely improvisational session to awaken our senses, with encouragement to be really present to our surrounds, to move with one another and find pleasure and support from our environment. Please meet by 9.45 in the Dance Base foyer, and we'll either walk to the Meadows, or the garden in the building, or back to a studio. Class will be roughly 75 mins.

Book your place here by selecting the date of the class, or just turn up on the day.
