Action-Danse Fribourg a le plaisir d’accueillir Kirstie Simson pour un workshop intensif. Professeur·es, danseur·ses et chorégraphes sont chaleureusement invité·es pour cet événement exceptionnel.

Kirstie Simson (UK) est intervenante à La Manufacture et de passage en Suisse pour l’occasion. Le workshop sera donné en anglais, avec traduction en français possible si nécessaire lors des discussions. Son travail est puissant et profond, c’est elle qui en parle le mieux:

Kirstie draws from her extensive experience of Contact Improvisation, dance techniques, the Alexander technique, Aikido, meditation, and her broad knowledge of improvisation in performance. She shares her work through facilitated exercises, open time for play and exploration, movement scores, observations, discussion, and humour. Much of the work is experienced through partnering and connection with others, balanced with solo time for processing and reflection. Weather-permitting we will also explore scores that take us outside.

There is deep inspiration and rigor in a practice of dance improvisation that posits vulnerability at its heart. Developing the skills to be able to care for, engage, respect, and respond to that state of openness in oneself, others and our environment generates creative work that is powerful and transformative. Learning from a place of interconnectedness can give us the resilience and insight to face into life’s challenges and complexities. In this workshop Kirstie shares the movement practices and underlying philosophies she has developed over forty years of committed involvement with dance improvisation as a ‘life-practice’ that has helped her negotiate life’s ups and downs, including a life-threatening illness in 2020.
