mobility, speed, coordination and spatial orientation. Training is focused on hybridizing

stretching, relaxation exercises focused on breathing, alignment and contact.


Tua o Te Arai is an exploration of bereavement, funeral practices and lamentation.

The workshop focuses on funeral, cemetery and burial art to explore movement and

improvisation for performance making. Creativity sessions explore sensitivity training,

structured improvisation and specific techniques for developing a body of internal

landscapes, performance persona and characterizations.

Sessions are designed to sharpen focus and develop a diverse range of choreographic

explorations, performance devising, scripting or co-authoring and may be experienced as

individuals, in small groups or larger ensemble.
