Join Akeim Toussaint Buck in sharing his Beatmotion Practice, an approach of improvisation and play using voice/vocality and movement. A simple and sophisticated, fun tool for choreography and character exploration.


We invite a variety of people with little to no experience or/and professional level to come play with us in this visceral approach of making and expressing.
