The SEEd project is a shared improvisation practice, an ongoing (2015-today) collaboration between AT practitioners, dance-artist Georgia Paizi & musician Thodoris Ziarkas, inspired by the poetic literalism of the human body, the physiology of plants, the patterns of nature, and the orbits in our galaxy... Mapping the overlapping landscapes of movement & music improvisation, the SEEd workshops involve AT principles, experiential anatomy imagery, materials from the field of somatic education, as well as materials from the Judson Church legacy.
Verbal instructions, subtle gestures, poetic imagery, props and anatomical models, live music, scores - the SEEd workshops include improvisation sessions that are talked through in real time, hands-on work in partners, private sessions, as well as scores for responsive choreography between the soundscape and the moving landscape in duets, solos, and groups, that investigate the shared auditory experience of being seen.
*We ran SEEd workshops in the studio, as well as outside, in rural environments.
