Moving On … is a series of audio guides that invite a personal improvisation movement practice by carving attention to sensory input, anatomy and imagery. People engage with it in parks across London and further afield in Europe. Conceived for lockdown it allows one’s practice to unfold in relation to others while keeping a safe distance. We propose large open spaces for people to move alone yet see each other and visually connect.You will receive an audio prior to the event, go somewhere you want to practice where others might practice too but far away or where you practice alone. As you like. The guide is conceived without need to meet up as all information is distributed before and during the audio guide. We take social distancing very serious and conceived Moving On as a way to work with the rules yet to provide what is largely not possible: moving freely, a sense of connectivity and being physically present in space.We invite all ages and backgrounds to join us as you can listen to the audio and follow in any way it suits you.
