Certified SRT teachers Usha Mahathiralingam and Alex Crowe are both participating in an Artists’ Retreat on ‘Contexts of Time and Space in Ecological Movement’ at Coventry University’s Centre for Dance Research (C-DaRE), led by Sandra Reeve and Emma Meehan.  The retreat explores how an ‘ecological movement’ approach, which considers the artist’s and audience’s inter-relationship with the context of dance and movement work, can be applied in the urban environment of Coventry city.  In different ways, they are both exploring how this kind of ecological approach both encompasses the kind of ‘inner’ somatic awareness that is central to SRT, while at the same time also bringing attention to the inescapable interrelatedness of such an awareness with the mover’s involvement with others and with their environment.
