This workshop is part of Charlie's ongoing investigations into what moves us. It takes improvisational approaches to different ways of engaging with and experiencing anatomy, perception, and imagination through our interactions with others and with the environments we find ourselves in.
We’ll consider thinking as moving and movement as thought. We’ll work alone, with partners and with the group as a whole, and use the information transmitted through interactions as a means to understand more about what what happens as we move.
The workshop is a space for physical work and play; where we dive into materials together and see what comes up.
Charlie Morrissey is a director/choreographer, performer, teacher, and researcher, who has been working in the field of performance for nearly 30 years.

His work is influenced by ongoing working relationships with Steve Paxton, Siobhan Davies, Lisa Nelson, Kirstie Simson, Scott Smith, Katye Coe, K.J.Holmes, Katie Duck and others.
