In this morning class I will be sharing some of my influences and ways of working with improvisation and choreographic frameworks. – What are you paying attention to whilst moving? – Utilising chi-cultivation, embracing the body as material and listening to our states of dance. Let’s turn up the temperature, attune to our attention and have a wee sweaty dance together to start the day.
About Isabella Oberländer
Isabella Oberländer is a dance artist and choreographer based in Limerick, Ireland. Originally from Austria, she was Associate Artist with Dance Limerick 2019-2021. Isabella’s solo work ’Glisten’ had its live premiere at Dublin Fringe Festival 2021. Her work engages in choreographic frameworks that embrace the materiality of the body and aim for a visceral articulation of physicality and thought. Working the imagination muscle, engaging with feminist ideas and dancing her heart out are integral parts of her artistic practice. As a dance artist she is always seeking, she is always in motion.
