“The body is not a set entity. It constantly changes, like the weather.” - Min Tanaka, founder of BodyWeather

BodyWeather is a movement practice that fuses contemporary and ancient knowledge from both the East and the West. Exploring sensation and imagination, a range of playful exercises develop creativity, sensitivity and insight. Different energies and ways of moving and being – from fast and dynamic to slow and meditative – enable discovery of the body as an environment connecting to the greater environment.

Founded in Japan and adopted internationally, BodyWeather has roots in kinesiology, martial arts, dance and theatre. It was introduced to Australia in 1989 by Tess de Quincey who was a dancer with Min Tanaka in Japan 1985-1991. Bringing together lineages of physical traditions with contemporary thought, it opens new doors to ancient knowledge and wisdom.

This first block of 6 2-hour weekly classes will be led by Victoria Hunt and/or Tess de Quincey who are both renowned solo dancers and performers in De Quincey Co dance-performance company. You can drop in as a casual attendee or get discounted full-block bookings.
