With sound and movement invitations, we will create a space to connect with both our inner and outer landscapes. This workshop material is informed by themes of resilience, imagination, collective and individual choice-making in improvisational scores.
How we can use our imagination, music and movement to keep ourselves nourished in a landscape of climate breakdown?
The scores that are generated will be explored physically and supported by responsive live music from Nicolette. With organic, natural and mechanically generated sounds, gently opening discussion around particular values we may place on where sounds are sourced. Physical themes will draw on both somatic practices and our outwardly visual landscape. There will be space for individual exploration, discussion, before opening into larger group-devised material.
Come and nourish your body being though music and movement.
Glasgow-based Penny Chivas (she/her) and Nicolette Macleod have been working together for the past eight years, in both community and professional settings. As performers they have worked together and also as part of ICEBERG, they have led workshops through Woodlands Community Garden, Integration Networks in Glasgow and for London Contact Improvisation. They are currently working on Julia McGhee’s ‘The Morrich Project’.
Individually they both have rich practices. Penny recently completed her final year project of the MEd at the RCS on ecopedagogy, she has presented this material at academic conferences. Her work ‘Burnt Out’ on the Australian bushfires is set to tour Scotland in Autumn 2023 after a successful fringe run in 2022.
As a singer songwriter Nicolette is led by her desire to share and create spaces for individuals to witness themselves. Her solo piece of gig theatre ‘The Sea and Me’ shares her personal relationship with the sea and talks about what we can preserve it and in turn, ourselves.
Whilst their passion for collaborating through multidisciplinary improvisational practices brought them together they are now keen to share, grow and reflect on how art can support us in this age of climate breakdown.
