This workshop is for creatives of any stripe (including those not mentioned above – writers, actors, etc) who want to extend their range, explore their edges and discover new forms. There will be a variety of structures for you to experiment in – in groups, with partners and individually. We will use voice, movement and improvisation to stimulate your imagination, and to access new areas of your expression. I offer an inter-disciplinary approach that brings all of you back into play. The plan is to leave feeling refreshed and inspired in your usual practice, ready to try new things.
Get in touch if you want to discuss whether this is right for you and if you would like to come.

Anam Cora – The Finale of our Pilgrimage through the Cycle of the Year
The Season of Rest
A Sung Meditation

This is the culmination of our journey – arriving back “home.” But we don’t arrive the same as when we have left. The events of the journey, the comrades, the road, the rocks in the shoe, these will have shaped and refined our being. And now for rest! A time to go to earth, replenish without trying, just arriving and being still. Our sung meditation will reflect the qualities of being held in deep silence, with music to help us to let go and be. I hope you can join us for this beautiful time of year!
There is a car park in Church Lane just beyond the church.

4.00 at Holy Trinity Church
Church Lane, Blythburgh, Suffolk IP19 9LL
No tickets, donations on the door. As this is a fundraiser for the charity “Combat Stress” there is a suggested donation of £10.

Performances and shows

September 4 (repeat on Sept. 7 at 2pm)

Lines & Spaces – A Live Art Performance
6.00 – 7.00 Performances by 5 Artists

Part of Reimagine Multimedia Exhibition

St Margaret’s Church
St. Benedict’s Street
Norwich
NR2 4TU

We live in a world of form, of outlines. But there is space between the lines. This is where the music of our existence is created – in the play between the form and the formless, the physical and spiritual. Mary will respond to the “Lines and Spaces” of the church, taking you on a ‘musical’ journey that goes beyond the physical into dimensions mystical. The journey itself composes the music that arises one moment to the next.

The piece includes movement, singing, movement and poetry. The work will be a response to the building, the space, the moment, the travel between inner and outer being; and to the spiritual potentiality that expands beyond lines into spaces.

This performance will be a short extract from the longer piece presented at Cley19 Contemporary Art Festival last July.
