Class Description

We will begin solo, finding release and tone through the body, exploring levels and potential structures as we move and arrive into our bodies.  Our partners will then create structures for us to explore, play and climb on – here we can experiment with weight giving, balance, dis-orientation, rolling, extending, release. Finally we can dance fluidly together, both partners offering structures and support for one another as we explore the limitless possibilites of the contact improvisation playground!

Suna studied performance and visual arts, and has subsequently trained with many dance practitioners including Helen Poyner, Miranda Tufnell, and Andrea Olsen.  Her passion for contact improvisation has been informed by working with practitioners such as Nitta Little, Lucia Walker and Karen Nelson.  In 2012 she undertook intensive training with Nancy Stark Smith and subsequently runs bi-weekly jams and workshops in Contact Improvisation in Hampshire.  Suna teaches improvisation and site specific performance at The University of Winchester and is a self employed dance practitioner.
