Stimprovisation Aby Watson
Date & Time: Tuesday 7th November 11am-12.30pm
Stimming is the repetitive movements, behaviours, and/or vocalisations we do to self-soothe, regulate, or stimulate to bring oneself into balance. We all stim, but for neurodivergent people who process the senses differently, stimming is particularly important for wellbeing. In this playful and fun workshop, choreographer Aby Watson will introduce her practice of stimming improvisation, or stimprovisation. We will play with movement, objects and sound in rhythm and repetition, directed by what feels good across the senses. This workshop offers a practical introduction to stimprovising - you do not need performance experience to join us, only a willingness to play and explore!
* We recommend you come in comfortable clothing that you can move in.

Booking in Advance recommended (Limited seating)
Harriet Dyer (BBC3, BBC Live at The Fringe, BBC Radio 4, BBC Knock Knock, BBC Ouch, Absolute Radio, The Russell Howard Hour) is an award winning comedian, writer and mental health advocate.
A story about mothers and levels of mother-ness that exist in the wild. From the face of Harriet Dyer (as seen on Comedy Central, The Russell Howard Hour and winner of 2022 Edinburgh Fringe Neurodiversity Representation Award)
“half mania, half Victoria Wood. Hilarious… She has quietly reinvented the confessional stand-up.”
***** Neurodiverse Review
“Harriet Dyer was one of the stand out superstars for me at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe. She’s insightful, unique, peerless, extraordinary and…
well, maybe a little unhinged.”
