I talked with dance pedagogue Andrew Morrish about his beginnings as a teacher and his understanding of education, his motivation to do solo improvisation as a performative practice, and about what his work brings to his colleagues and to this world. He told me about some of the different layers of his work during improvisation that became his methodology, about what it means to be a dancer (and it’s not about how high your legs can go), and what it means to be an artist. He spoke about differences between therapy and solo improvisation, between professional and non-professional artists, and about the transparency one should work with on stage. He also told me that his work is his political response to the current situation in society.
