A morning of changing and creating new material followed by an afternoon workshop with a small group of resident guests at Le Fosso with a range of PMLD (profound and multiple learning disabilities) with their support staff.
With four of us team-teaching the session we were able to work 1:1 and took time to duet with each participant, discovering their range of movement and willingness to create and respond to movement stimulus. Some wonderful moments of connection between people.
Everyone tried out the ropes and each found an idea to ‘play with’: standing independently, swinging with arm gestures, simply being off the ground and pushing off on tiptoe. Finished the session with the parachute creating a welcome breeze in the heat of the afternoon.
They are coming back for more on Friday!
