Movement, dance and theatre improvisation as well as contact improvisation is currently my practice and defines me as the performer that I am. It has allowed me to explore movement material that emerges from my body rather than reproducing contemporary dance technique adopted from other artists and teachers. Release technique nevertheless dominates my movement style, integrating physics of movement through the play of weight, breath, sight and the natural state of flux. I like using and exploring sensual systems and the preconceptions we have about movement in general – perceptions. My favourite teachers include Rick Nodine, Ben Ash and Jess Curtis.

“Dark matter, but enlivened by the wit of a courageous cast of whom Laura Doehler deserves special mention.” (www.guardian.co.uk)
