In this retreat, Susan Murphy (assisted by Julianna Hane) will guide you through creative explorations, teaching you to expand a phrase you bring into a dance you love. Structured improvisation will inform presence, personal meaning and connection with your apparatus and an audience.

You will also have a chance to work with apparatus you may not have explored before…aerial strap loops and tetra.  The Marsh Studio has a sling, a fabric, a circus trapeze and multiple dance trapezes; if you want to bring your own equipment, feel free. There will be opportunity to work with your personal apparatus.
