Kinship is an exploration into how we meet ‘other’ in non human-centric landscapes. Through a series of physical and attuning preparations that take place both in the studio and outdoors, we get ready to sink deeper into the landscape, where we may share space with wild and/or free roaming animals outside of more controlled environments. The experience of which is often both rich and full, and so Kinship also gives time to the processing of and reflection on these experiences.
Kinship is for all those with physical or experiential practices interested and curious about movement, body in landscape, non human-centric environments and shared experiences.
Workshop facilitator Thomas Goodwin has a background in various movement practices and somatic trainings. The Kinship Workshop draws from the experience of spending time with other animals both in sanctuaries and wild encounters. Thomas completed an internship at The Kerulos Center in 2014 studying trans-species psychology and self-determination, from which developed the material included in the Kinship Workshop.
