Moving with the Otherwise
Explorations and research through movement and ritual to reclaim our belonging and interdependence with the animate living world. For a number of years Alana has been creating movement rituals in natural environments using clay, aerial circus, Butoh and other performance modalities.
More recently this work has emerged into a space of exploring and connecting with the animate world to increase a sense of belonging and resilience to support activism.
'Moving with the Otherwise' is an evolving practice that uncenters anthropomorphism through being in conversation through movement with trees, animals, birds, plants, mountains, rivers.
This is an experimental offering. A co-created community of practice researching and exploring movement as creative resistance in these times. We are a small group of physical artists and movers support each other in our artistic practice through our bodies and finding ways to invite exploration, research and ritual into our lives as enquiry.
