Forest Sketch #1 I often hear people asking me to share what I do when I go dancing in the forest. While there yesterday, I had this idea for a short video. I am calling them Forest Sketches and there will be more coming as I replace commuting time with Forest Dancing! Keep well people! #forestdancing #sketches #scrapbook #nature #tests #inspiration #isolation #keepinmoving #choreography #movement #moment

One last song before leaving the studio... #improvisation #internationalwomensday Music Dreamer’s Wake by Rival Consoles @rivalconsoles The track came in randomly... All of it was pure improvisation.

Finishing the week archiving the multiple choreography drawings of the space I made to represent @alighieri_jewellery vision for their beautiful show @londonfashionweek @britishfashioncouncil #AW20 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Alighieri's show was inspired by T.S. Eliot's poem The Waste Land, based on Dante's Alighieri Divine Comedy masterpiece. Each model had a character to play with, a sense of ritual was unfolding, with @nyx .edc choir giving us all goosebumps. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The show was crowned by Princess Anne who presented the Queen Elizabeth II award to Rosh Mahtani. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This year, let's celebrate an inspiring woman jeweller! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Styling – Ellie Grace Cumming @elliegracecumming Set – Joanna Goodman @jgdmn Music – Benji B @_benjib Make Up – Martina Lattanzi @martilattanzi Hair – Tony&Guy @tonyandguy_official Prod – Lois Moyes & Estella Castle @estella .castle BFC – Stacey James @britishfashioncouncil Press – Kelly Tanti @kelly_tanti Casting – Megan McCluskie @meganmccluskiecasting Under garments – Vintage+Baserange @baserange Choreography – Me @emma #fashion #choreography #jewellery #tseliot #dantealighieri #models #aw20 #ritual #queenelisabeth2award #britishfashioncouncil #londonfashionweek #hattongarden #craft

Backstage | Rehearsals @alighieri_jewellery AW20 Love In The Wasteland ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For the past two weeks, I had the pleasure of delving into the Alighieri Jewellery world and beautiful work to create the choreography for their London Fashion Week AW20 show. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Working alongside founder @roshmahtani and her dedicated team was so fluid. She trusts people and her vision was so clear that everything fell into place. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Alighieri's show was inspired by T.S. Eliot's poem The Waste Land, based on Dante's Alighieri Divine Comedy masterpiece. Each model had a character to play with, a sense of ritual was unfolding, with @nyx .edc choir giving us all goosebumps. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The show was crowned by Princess Anne who presented the Queen Elizabeth II award to Rosh Mahtani. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This year, let's celebrate an inspiring woman jeweller! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Styling – Ellie Grace Cumming @elliegracecumming Set – Joanna Goodman @jgdmn Music – Benji B @_benjib Make Up – Martina Lattanzi @martilattanzi Hair – Tony&Guy @tonyandguy_official Prod – Lois Moyes & Estella Castle @estella .castle BFC – Stacey James @britishfashioncouncil Press – Kelly Tanti @kelly_tanti Casting – Megan McCluskie @meganmccluskiecasting Under garments – Vintage+Baserange @baserange Choreography – Me #fashion #choreography #jewellery #tseliot #dantealighieri #models #aw20 #ritual #queenelisabeth2award #britishfashioncouncil #londonfashionweek #hattongarden #craft

It’s all about the journey! I’m grateful for those who’ve been there on the road with me! ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The timeline got disturbed obviously ‘cos things happen, it’s called Life but I’m so glad I made it and shared this message. Link in bio 🤘 I truly believe We Are All Dancers and our inner dancer will always be there. Dance unites us all. Dance flows in our veins. Dance is a universal language. Dance breaks society’s constructs and enables us to be with one another. In this talk, I share my experience and evolution with dance since she I three years old to how moving led me to work with business owners and refugees. Dancing is an essential part of being human. We are all dancers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Creating this TedX was a collective effort! Thank you to my parents @delphzangs @cidre2table who gave me this love for dancing and my brothers @anatole @ulyssezangs for following my steps. Special thanks to @denisailie for the amazing video. Love to everyone who sat at rehearsals, came to listen, helped me through this month of talk creation and ongoing support @coezone @ri .chakraborty @scilla2855 @wordetc @dyadcreativeduo @karenschaller @karenklang @emmabarnett @delphimayj @joolskb @saragoulston @kategibbprint @agirlrunning @johncameronmusic 💛

Douglas Dunn, 1973, Dancing is Talking. This poem has been in the TedX folder and I feel it is very appropriate to share it now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I see this piece as a back bone and foundation for what I have been doing and for what will be. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #wearealldancers #dance #danceforever #getupandmove #shakeit #whocares #innerdancer #findyourflow #letsdance #togetherness #innerrhythm #nevertoolate

WE ARE ALL DANCERS – Dance Video ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A few months ago, I collaborated with @DenisaIlie and @UlysseZangs on a short dance film. I wanted to capture some improvised movements as well as choreographed ones in what I call my studio – The Forest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The video ended up being made as I was writing a TedX talk about a dear topic of mine – WE ARE ALL DANCERS. Coming out soon on Youtube! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The forest is a place, I can tune into my own rhythm and my inner dancer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Your inner dancer is always there, patiently waiting or sometimes bubbling inside so Keep On Moving people! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you to the wonderful @denisailie for editing and shooting with such ease and grace. Thank you to my talented brother @ulyssezangs who created the soundtrack for the video being briefly briefed about the style I wanted! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ TITLE – KEEP ON MOVING Choreography and Performance by @Emma Original Music by @Ulyssezangs A Film by @Denisailie ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Link in bio! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #forestdancing #forest #dance #trees #climbing #innerdancer #improvisation #nature #letgo #justdance #dancefilm #photography #sparklydress

Photography by @denisailie ✨📸✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I don’t feel very creative on my own in a studio. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I recently moved to Norfolk and found the forest as a creative sanctuary where I can be in tune with my inner rhythm and my inner dancer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I need space to move, I need to be closer to nature, I need silence so I can hear and feel my heartbeat. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When I practise what I call Forest Dancing, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I let my body take me where it needs to go. I end up climbing trees, sometimes I stay completely still, and other times I cover the whole forest. I scare dogs, walkers pretend not to see me. For a couple of hours each week, I stop living in my mind and rebalance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Keep On Moving! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #forestdancing #forest #dance #trees #climbing #innerdancer #improvisation

This bunch of talented people @oxfordbrookes are pitching in a week some early stage ideas! Tonight was all about spreading passion, sharing experience and infusing the room with grounded presence so they find their own voice, own confidence and way to pitch! When groups are so receptive and engaged, it doesn’t feel like work, it flows and give me energy to go home in the cold dark night! #spreadpassion #communicate #connection #oxfordbrookes #sparkprogramme
