Justine Chambers

*Classes this week are 10am - 12pm

Class Description: This class focuses on developing strategies for being present while investigating the perpetual dynamic negotiations within our body and the space around it. The class begins with a score to reacquaint ourselves with our bodies, and progresses with set exercises and larger movement phrases.

This class incrementally layers ways of thinking through the body, that invite participants into an experience of their body in the present moment. It includes searching for systems of support inside and outside of the body, inviting shifts in sensation and perception, and curiously ferreting out previously unknown possibilities for movement. With an openness to functional change, we will explore the precise moments where the body is activated into movement.

Justine A. Chambers is a dance artist living and working on the unceded territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Musqueam and Tsleil-Waututh Nations. Her interests lie in collaborative creation and re-imagining dance performance. In her work she focuses on what is felt over what is seen, and the dances that are already there – the social choreographies present in the everyday. She has been creating performance projects throughout Canada since 2000. Chambers is Max Tyler-Hite’s mother.
