Participant Spotlight: Meg Saunders

Megan SaundersAs a performer and choreographer Megan has worked across disciplines, dancing and creating in galleries (Tate modern, Hayward Gallery), for film (BBC learning), and for a variety of contemporary choreographers (Frauke Requardt, Lizzi Kew Ross).

At Deptford Lounge (July 2015) & Wilderness (August 2015)

Meg’s morning movement session will focus on awakening and preparing the body for the day ahead. We will pay attention to weight and centering oneself through gravity and flow, leading towards a more energised state of moving. Using breath, partnering and task-based improvisations we will shake up our bodies and minds working towards leaving with our feet firmly planted on the ground, spines long and heads reaching towards the sky.

Megan works as a performer and choreographer and the workshop will draw on her dance training and movement practice.  

These workshops were programmed in partnership with Arts Odyssey.

 

2 Minute Interview

How does your workshop relate to being in the NOW?

One of my favourite things about dance and movement is that it places us in the present moment – the sensory experience of moving the body and listening to what it’s got to tell us. The combination of the social, physical and playful is my favourite thing about people moving together.

What are you most looking forward to doing within your slot at NOW?

Moving together in a relaxed and playful environment.

Any tips on how the audience can most benefit from your workshop? Meg Saunders

Wear comfortable clothes, and be ready to dance move and play.

We will focus on weight and centring oneself through gravity and flow leading towards a more energised state of moving. Using breath, some partnering and task based improvisations we will wake up our bodies and minds working towards leaving with our feet firmly planted on the ground, spines long and heads reaching towards the sky.
