Second gathering of the Social Choregraphy Lab Helsinki

May 12th, 2020

Facilitator: Sally Davison

The second gathering of the Social Choregraphy Lab Helsinki was held online by Sally Davison, a dance artist and choreographer and chairperson of DanceAbility Finland. Her work focuses on non-stylized environmental movement and is somatically based.

Sally proposes Social Choreography as a practice that focuses on the way we move our bodies, highlighting the agreements we make individually and collectively in our everyday lives and social spaces.

The workshop centered around mover/witness and question/response exercises, charting the kinds of spaces and places from which our presence was shared with the rest of the group. We also explored new horizons of moving together through the computer as a combined center for all of us.
