Improvising Politics is an ongoing series of playful, non-partisan workshops finding new ways to reflect on politics.


Using our entire bodies – moving, sensing, writing, talking – to explore different themes (previously power, time, borders and political speech). Improvising Politics: out of touch considers what might a touch-centred approach to politics look like? Through a number of practical exercises, proposals and discussions participants will consider things like consent, care, solidarity and resistance. Neither formal dance nor formal political experience necessary. The workshop draws on somatic dance practices and is suitable for all types of experience, agility and fitness, and all ages over 16. The workshop will involve touch but we will work to explore and negotiate our own limits. Which is part of the point really.

Workshop is held at Grand Union and open to everyone, but booking is essential. Book here.

This event is part of VOZ RARA curated by Grand Union Curators-in-Residence Anna Santomauro and Valerio Del Baglivo.
