Our artistic and aesthetic questions live through our embodiment. The series will explore embodied modes for aesthetic inquiry as they exist and are emergent through the expression of the body, our relationship to artistic practice, space (installation), and the audience.


This series is suitable for those interested in performance-as-methodology, general ecology, and the 'uses' of the body.  Each class is two hours from 10-12am. Individual supervision for artistic research on a personal project (artistic or biographical) available on request.


Monday mornings 10-12am, (10 weeks) R2200, R250 per class.

InSitu, 1st floor 3 Hopkins Street, Salt River.
