This audio is an invitation to revisit patterns and memories we hold and store in our bodies. Working with repetition we can become aware what it is we do and concern ourselves with and how these things are extensions of ourselves that like our bodies direct and divert or at times affirm who we are and the pathways we carve for ourselves.

with dance artists Alice Labant, Irene Fiordilino, Jan Lee and Laura Doehler

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.

Contributing artists:

Alice Labant : is the youngest member who has been writing and recording for Moving On many times. Her work and voice offer sensitive and creative elements that spark imagination and over the recent months has created a powerful glue and substance to the work.

Laura Doehler : is the main facilitator and has been the initiator of the these audio guides to support her teaching during Covid. Sharing the writing and recording and providing them for people to find ways to connect and make sense of the world has become the objective of Moving On. Alongside the creation of these audios Laura is looking at professional development for these artists to be the ground support for a creative and culture infused community where people meet, exchange and define new tools to meet the everyday.

Jan Lee : Jan has been holding space for dancing and weaving the Exit Map vibes into the new communities in Bristol where she has recently rooted. She is a dancer, musician and somatic practitioner who seeks to facilitate empathetic dynamic spaces where body and voice meet to speak out and lead the shifting of perspectives, when freedom in so many areas of life is restricted. She is working on various creative projects at the moment, facilitating processes that bring contrasting worlds together to intertwine with dance alongside aspects including technology, music-based productions and social interactive experiences.

Irene Fiordilino : Irene is a choreographer and PhD student in Creative Practice at Trinity Laban. Her interdisciplinary practice falls in between choreography and architecture, which she uses a source of mutual inspiration. Collaborating with Exit Map feeds and challenges her research on space and the potentials of its embodiment.
