About Move With Me!: A Somatic Series with Vincent Yong
Led by award-winning movement artist and somatic therapist Vincent Yong, Move With Me!: A Somatic Series is a series of 75-minute-long workshops in somatic movement, presented in conjunction with Gallery Children’s Biennale 2021. Each series of workshops will focus on one of the four major themes of the Biennale—Home, Environment, Diversity and Time—and invites parents and children to experience the artworks of the Biennale through their bodies. Vincent will also demonstrate how somatic movement can be a useful tool for connecting the self with the body, and for translating the visual experience of art appreciation into something more immersive and intimate.
