Alt Prepping: with Hamish MacPherson


Prepping is the practice of making active preparations for a possible disaster or emergency, typically by stockpiling food, ammunition, and other supplies. But could we think of a kind of ‘Alt Prepping’ that stockpiles aesthetics, movements, relationships and other resources for some unimagined future?

Join Hamish MacPherson for free monthly one-day events aimed at developing a range of movements as a practice of democratic collective leaning and teaching. These loosely facilitated sessions are a way to exchange knowledge, perspectives and politics through dancing, movement and embodied practices.

But what is it?

This is perhaps deliberately vague because the aim is to see what emerges from the people who are there. If you have any questions please email Hamish.

In concrete terms we will spend the day trying out different scores that might involve dancing, moving, talking etc. Anyone can propose things, but you don’t have to and we can always come up with new things amongst ourselves. 

Through these we can find different ways to be together and maybe think about what is important or interesting to us as people.

It’s not a rehearsal, it’s not a reading group. It is rooted in dance practices but is open to anyone without any dance training.

Ideally come for the whole day but you can start later or end earlier of you want.  You don’t have to come every month either.
