articulate animal

articulate animal is a platform for critical and creative inquiry into embodiment, movement and environment through practice which combines dance, somatics, bodywork and landcare. Established in 2007 by artistic director Sue Hawksley, projects are often collaborative and interdisciplinary and have been presented in theatres, galleries and academic contexts internationally.
