This week's intensive workshop began with making contact. All together, in pairs, with hands and with name signs. Using hoists, aerial equipment, working on the floor and finding ways to speak to each other - verbally, physically, using sign, objects, sound and music.
Aerial entanglements with Dayna, Leila, Hugo and Izzy
Ashton & Sam
Sam: There are a couple of things here. There's a very simple base and a sit which we can practice with our partners... a little bit like leapfrog where these bases get made across the space and Ashton finds his way across them.. a seat on the hips, lay out and then move on. Ashton is actually amazing at is giving his weight. Did you see that? And he really found hip-to-hip. He knew it was right there.. move a little more.. there it is. Whoosh, he just goes. This is actually a really good one to build on.
