As we transition to summer in the northern hemisphere, we ignite our senses and invite light and lightness into our bodies and imagination. Supported by somatic awareness, we work with Movement Ritual to explore movements on the ground, to standing and moving through space. We experiment with space, time and force to illuminate different qualities in our dancing. Drawing and writing add layers of discovery as we acknowledge the arrival of the summer solstice and celebrate the creative light within.
