Meeting Places - two-day dance health imagination workshop with Miranda Tufnell

Meeting Places -- dance health imagination
Two day workshop with Miranda Tufnell to support creative practice in healthcare settings.

Over two days, we will share and explore key skills and tools that underpin an intention, and calibrating our responses to support an unfolding story. We will listen through breath and touch to discover the images that connect and strengthen our own and another's resources. The need to be heard, to express ourselves is fundamental to wellbeing and our sense of self.

Miranda Tufnell is a dance artist, writer, Alexander teacher and cranio-sacral therapist. She has been teaching and making performances for over 40 years. Her work, both as a performer and in health settings has been to explore the ways in which movement shapes our sense of meaning, language and perception. With Chris Crickmay she co-authored two handbooks on sourcing creative work entitled Body Space Image (1990) and A Widening Field (2004). She has worked extensively in the field of arts and health including part time (14 years) within the NHS for a GP surgery. Her most recent book, When I Open My Eyes - dance health imagination (2017), documents this work.
