My fridge is empty. I don’t know what I’m eating tonight. I really shouldn’t be signing up for this, I should spend my night hunting foxes to roast over a fire made of old newspapers: 200 DKK
I’ve got a job! Yes, can you believe it, a real job! I’m still dismantling capitalism though… But I have money. Sweet sweet money, and you can have some of it: 400 DKK
I’ve got so much money I want to pay for that person above with the empty fridge. And the fox joke wasn’t funny, it was just weird. I decide what’s funny and weird, because I’m rich: 600 DKK
800 DKK (Let me help you here… This makes no sense… It costs 200 to be a member. We just put this option in as a stupid marketing trick).

What is the workshop about?
This workshop is about being and moving with, and the ways in which moving with another person can be a way to notice how we are always moving in relation to something – that we are never moving in a void – you really do make me feel mighty real.
After a period of separation, the workshop will re-visit ideas and experiences of proximity and touch, materiality and motion.
We will map our own structures in relation to space and other structures, and play with moving alongside, into, with and through.
This will be an opportunity to explore the the weight and the lightness of moving in company with others and coming to the activity of improvising in contact as something new.
