Justin Philpott

Justin has been dancing Contact Improvisation consistently since 2014 in London, Brighton and across Europe. He started teaching CI in 2018 in collaboration with Marie Chabert at Chisenhale, and has since taught CI classes and festival sessions at Goldsmiths, for Rick Nodine in London, and independently in London and Greece. His movement background is primarily rooted in Thai Massage and Kung Fu, and later study of Yang style Tai Chi Chuan, and Qi Gong in the lineage of Tew Bunnag. He discovered Kung Fu in 2005 and studied intensively for years in London, Hong Kong and China, before finally settling on the practice of CI as his "Art of Peace". He has nearly two decades of experience in Thai massage, and has taught in France, Greece, Thailand and the UK. He has also supplemented his "listening" ability with the study of Craniosacral Therapy. Justin is a multidisciplinary mover and listener who is continually learning, having explored other fluidity based arts, becoming a competent juggler and double staff fire spinning artist. In 2015 he performed the slow motion duet "Kiss" by Tino Sehgal in the Finnish National Gallery, Helsinki. For the last two years he has been training in Contemporary Dance to further develop his CI practice.

The spaces that Justin holds for somatic practices invite the cultivation of grounding, softening, deep listening, awareness, centering, receptivity and fluidity.
