Maria Svensson is a professional dance artist working mainly with improvisation and an approach called ‘Poetic Movement’ which she has gathered from Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company. Her work spans from teaching all levels and abilities, performing and directing, including film. She is the artistic director and founder of the solo dance festival Going Solo Together which takes place biannually in Örebro, Sweden.
Maria will offer a safe space for exploration and investigation into various ways of working with improvisation drawing from her most recent experience working with a group of intergenerational dancers and the idea of painting the canvas. Focus will be on noticing, and specifically noticing our pleasures which informs our learning about ourselves as artists.
