These sessions are an opportunity for experienced improvisers (movers, musicians, other art forms..) with a keen professional interest in performing improvisation to come together to play, research and spark creative relationships. Rachel Dean will facilitate these initial sessions with the focus on creating a collaborative environment where all participants can explore their current interests and those which emerge. Drop in to as many of the three sessions as you like.

Ticketing: £4 on the day. (card machine available)
