Embodied Methods to explore chemical relationships

with Jemma Woolmore and Pati Masłowska

Chemicals pervade our environment, they interact with and alter bodies, yet are often invisible. Chemicals are agents whose paths reveal connections across bodies – land, water, human and non-human. How can we engage with what is happening inside our bodies? How can we better understand these chemical relations?

This is a workshop to share and develop ways of knowing our bodies and the chemicals inside them. Collectively we will explore embodied approaches using the senses, materials and movement to find different ways of knowing chemicals and their relationships with us.

The day will feature an Open Soma* session with Pati Masłowska to explore these relations using somatic movement practice.

*Open Soma is a practice of internal attunement. It’s a guided somatic journey aiming to navigate bodies into the state of mindful feeling, followed by spontaneous movement.
Open Soma emerges in the liminal space between speculative and tangible. These cracks are mapped out with the question: how can I move-with the reciprocal play between cross-sensory perception and imagination?

This practice traces pleasures that leaks from the body explored from-within in such an attentive way.

Please wear comfortable clothes.
