Posing the question of how our movements change in relation to one another. How we might experience duality in our own bodies, and exploring the process of watching versus feeling movement.

Considering movement as a visual embodiment of the agency of “doing something,” of thinking, revising, starting over. This workshop is designed for people of all levels of fitness and physical capability.
