Dancehouse stands on what always was and always will be Aboriginal land. We pay our respects to the traditional owners of this land, the Wurundjeri peoples of the Kulin Nation, to their Elders past and present, and acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded.

A day of practice for those with some experience of improvisational, movement-based performance.

This lightly facilitated day-long event will offer a safe, supportive, and stimulating environment for practicing improvised performance. The day’s sessions will be structured in a simple way to allow time for everyone to perform, reflect, and receive positive feedback. Participants will have the opportunity to create multiple, short pieces that explore across movement, dance, sound and spoken word.

The day will start with some time for a personal warm-up. Then, breaking into smaller groups, the day will be divided into sessions for peer practice. The number of participants will determine how many practice slots will be available and in how many spaces. Maximum 20 participants.

For all enquiries and booking info contact Catherine via the Enquire button.
