Some Time for Time: Image and Gravity:

Fiona Wright’s studio approach is located in physicality, influenced by somatic practices such as Feldenkrais Method (Awareness Through Movement). Her performance teaching and facilitation offers a creative laboratory to reflect, breathe and revitalise through improvisation and writing as movement research - for performance making and choreography. Sessions will often begin on the floor to bring attention and interest to the particular body we inhabit with some introductory body-voice work. Improvisation scores are used to work individually and collaboratively with an emphasis on process and experimentation. Discussion of subjects such as documentation, spectatorship and how we respond creatively to each other’s performance work can feature in workshops which aim to be inclusive to all kinds of training for artists and graduates with special interests in performance and fascinations for movement investigation.
