Andrew works tightly with improvisation techniques. His improvisation class is built-up on a series of exercises, to practice instant composition and explore the complexities of coordination. The focus is on composition by exercising individual articulation and ensemble work. The overall aim is to facilitate group cohesion, and a sense of individual expression within the group.
Having worked with Candoco dance company and frequented artist working with a somatic approach to dance, I am interested in working with the body as it is experienced from within, rather than by the way it is looked at from the outside.
