Dancing in the Urban Wild is an opportunity to dance together with others in the wild(ish) spaces of south-east London. Expect oak trees, birds, dogs, spontaneous artworks, the occasional spectator, great company, and general joy and life-enhancement. There is a little simple, non-directive facilitation, but the emphasis is on freedom to emerge your own dance in your own way, in response to nature and the other dancers. We dance through two cycles – starting small, rising to a crescendo and slowing to a pause – to an eclectic mix of music (silent disco headsets are provided).
All are welcome. Dance experience and aptitude are pretty irrelevant; more important is curiosity about what happens when you put your body in motion. These events are pop-up, so check back here, see the facebook group or join the email list for the date of the next.
Dis-dancing in the Urban Wild
How does it work? You will be sent a pre-mixed dance cycle as an mp3 to your dropbox which you can play on your phone. At 10am we get together on Zoom, say hello and dance a little. You will then be sent off to dance in your own particular wild place, with a simple task to help you explore your environment. You can dance in your back garden or a local park. At 2pm we all come back together on Zoom share our experiences.
