Professional Workshop with Mary Nunan

Z(ero)ing into Improvisation

Part of Dance Limerick’s New Series of Professional Classes curated by Dance Limerick and Irish World Academy of Music and Dance Associate Artist, Siobhán Ní Dhuinnín.

The workshop is based on an approach to movement research, improvisation and performance called z(ero)ing. It comprises a series of improvisational tasks which provide for movement to be explored from a number of different angles:‘directional spatial awareness’ (sensing Space as a supportive surface) and ‘pre-movement impulses’ (attuning to breath and gravity). The notion of collective finding is central to z(ero)ing. We research together and discuss our ‘findings’. This feedback loop allows us to better understand what is going on and to further explore how the tasks might provide for the energy of ‘thing’ which is also ‘no-thing’ to be harnessed.
