Bartenieff-Laban Qigong Dance - Metamorphosis - London

London based in-person intercultural embodied research co-labs. Exploring Bartenieff-Laban-Qigong as inspiration, connection and resilience.

Since before lockdown began, Drs. Andréa Maciel and Alex Boyd began building a community of people committed to connecting together through a collaborative investigation of Bartenieff-Laban Qigong dance both in-person and via Zoom. In this new in-person collaborative intercultural embodied research series we are creating spaces and offering tools for participants to ignite and harness a sense of inspiration, connection and resilience through practice.

Drop-in tickets are available, although we encourage you to consider enrolling on the full series and committing to all 6 workshops if you can. During the sessions, we hold space for each other, creating the conditions for self and group care. A session involves breath and bodywork; movement and touch; activities to promote connection, resilience and inspiration - being and playing together in open or guided teachings or improvisations.

No prior experience is necessary to join the sessions. A spirit of openness and lifting off judgement (not discernment) is encouraged. The bodywork is gentle and adaptable. Wear clothes you can move in with either bare feet or studio friendly footwear. Bring a journal for your own personal use and perhaps a drink. Consider current guidelines for 'living with Covid-19’.
