This experiential workshop will explore the basis of Moving-With, a collection of movements designed to cultivate new experiences of the self and others.
Throughout his doctoral studies, Keven Lee has been working on conceptualizing the philosophy of Moving-With through his own experience as a dancer and health professional, but also through the experiences of others involved in Moving-With groups (i.e., autistic children, caretakers, individuals living with dementia, professional caretakers, research teams, students, etc.). Influenced by Gaga language principles, improvisation and play rhetoric, Moving-With allows one to explore and discover the many ways in which one can move and wants to move, rather than imposing positions onto a body. Participants are thus invited to experience themselves in relation to the environment, both physical and social.
During this interactive, virtual event, Keven Lee will briefly present the idea of Moving-With, sharing his own reflections and on-going work on the philosophy. He will then lead an online experiential workshop. No prior dance or therapeutic experience is required, simply an openness to explore and discover how your own body wants to move with yourself and the environment.
Please ensure you have enough space to move at ease. Also, if you feel comfortable to do so, please leave your camera on throughout the workshop so that all participants can share and learn from the exploration and discovery of others.
This event is presented by the National Centre for Dance Therapy and supported by the RBC Foundation.
