Amy Voris


This workshop will experiment with structures for generating and for composing movement informed by the principles of Authentic Movement.  The act of returning to certain movement material is considered as a state of enquiry. The intention is to cultivate sensitivity to the articulation and quality of movement alongside a pleasure in being witnessed. 

Amy Voris is a dance-artist based in Manchester.  Her practice is responsive and associative, driven by an interest in the body/psyche as a multitudinous entity and in developing relationships with people and with movement material over long stretches of time.  The outcome of the work is contingent on hunches and interactions that occur during the process and varies widely.  Examples of current projects include a collaboration with three North West based artists exploring the female lineage (accumulations), a laboratory between nine artists working in different media (L219) and a farcical yet extremely successful business venture (aMigaentErpriseS).  Her current research is concerned with the incremental sculpting of movement material vis a vis the processual qualities of Authentic Movement.  Amy has worked in higher education for over a decade delivering a range of dance-related subjects at Laban, London Contemporary Dance School, Birkbeck College, Coventry University, Manchester Metropolitan University and The Northern School of Contemporary Dance.  She has a commitment to developing artist-led initiatives such as The Choreographers’ Circle in London, Decoda in Coventry and A Sunday School in Manchester.  Amy completed training in Integrative Bodywork and Movement Therapy with Linda Hartley in 2012.
