Finding a centre and moving from it, finding clarity and noticing presence, elastic moods, exploring gesture through relational and sculptural movement, assembling new dances.
These are some of the things that Katherine will be drawing on in her classes. Through sensory work, improvisation and release-based material we will dance as listening, expanding, tuning in to places of initiation, desire and care within our individualities and togetherness, with plenty of space for play and dancing as we are.
Katherine Hall is a dance artist and performer based in Bristol. You will find her dancing ambitiously and with attention, practicing improvisation. She creates choreographic works that involve the bringing together of questions, imaginations, observations, play and feeling in different forms of live performance, workshops and writing and presents these nationally and internationally. Described as ‘intelligent, nuanced, pleasurable, political and complex’ (CHANNING TATUM), her solo work You sit there has been performed recently at Chisenhale Dance Space, Dance4 and Exeter Phoenix. Her book ‘Movements of Care’ which gives time to noticing choreographies of care has sold over 200+ copies across Europe. Katherine has much experience of teaching professional class for artists and students and leading open level workshops for groups with different dancing experience in arts and health & wellbeing contexts. She has worked as a dance performer with various choreographers including Jo Fong, Jo Bannon, Priya Mistry and Rosemary Lee. She is a recipient of the 2019 fellowship with Action Hero, an associate artist at Attenborough Arts Centre, and a member of INTERVAL, an artist-led support network in Bristol, UK.
