The Movement Rites

A movement-based Rites of Passage workshop, resourcing people to embrace and integrate the ever-changing periods of transitions in life.


Traditionally a Rite of Passage is a ceremony that marks important transition periods in a persons life, such as: birth, puberty, marriage, having children and death. In our ever-changing modern society we are constantly presented with matters of change in our relationships, career, identity and environment, just to name a few. In our culture we have largely lost the ceremonies and rituals marking these important moments in our lives.


Through dance, ritual and the creative-arts, we will use this ever-evolving period of change as creative fuel for our individual, and collective expression. We will use Open Floor Movement Practice - a lively, sweaty, full-on dance inquiry - to support us to find our ground, release unwanted baggage and awaken the artist within. No dance experience required.

* How can we move and include it all – feelings, other people, thoughts, wild passions, limitations?
* How can we embrace change and use it as creative fuel for transformation?
* What is my unique creative genius?
