Facilitated by Lee Su-Feh, Spiralling Technologies is a workshop that explores spirals from Qigong and Chinese martial arts and applies them as support systems for dancing.

We will encounter Qigong exercises and martial arts drills in order to experience the spirals in and around our bodies. We will then improvise with spirals, alone and with others, following this score:

Tune in to the spirals inside and outside you

Follow one

Follow it until it meets another,

Follow it until it joins another,

Becomes another.

Follow it small. Follow it big

BIO

Born and raised in Malaysia, Lee Su-Feh (she/they) was indelibly marked by teachers who strove to find a contemporary Asian expression out of the remnants of colonialism and dislocated traditions. Since moving to Musqueam, Squamish, Tsleil-Waututh Territories, a.k.a. Vancouver, Canada, in 1988, they have created a body of work that explores the contemporary body as a site of intersecting and displaced histories and habits. These works have taken place in theatres, on the streets, on beaches and in the forest, in print and online.
