The culmination of a year-long, practice-based research by Honours student Caroline Ellis, Social Bodies explores the narrative potential of contact improvisation. Influenced by substantial theoretical research, the project investigates how the complex spatial interactions of bodies moving with a specific improvisation score can be used to portray interpersonal relationships, character and story, revealing moving bodies as humans.

We strongly encourage booking in advance for all of our events. This guarantees your seat, and allows us to communicate any unforeseen event scheduling changes with you. Please note, tickets are required for entry to paid events.
