OFF03407 - Sung Im Her.jpg


In Moving Cloud (for theatre), Sung Im will share their own approach to movement direction -  working from personal movement research related with text, they will explore how to develop movement with character, how to develop different dynamics with text, and ask how does a character move?

Sung Im Her’s approach to movement is playful and open. The class also involves working in pairs with touch, resistance and dialogue to give feedback into the body and offer different choices of response.
