Many people are reinventing themselves under lockdown. So, when an email popped into my inbox 10 days ago inviting me to 15 minutes of smiling, laughing and connecting to boost my immune system and lift my mood for the rest of day, I thought ‘Yes…that’s exactly what we ALL need’ so I made a podcast about it. Flora Wellesley Wesley is a dancer, choreographer, teacher and writer and sits on the council of Equity (choreographers’ seat). She is also a founder member of Nora, a contemporary dance ensemble who make highly original work constantly challenging boundaries. In this podcast we hear pieces of Nora’s work woven through Flora’s laughter workshop and a sung portrait of her made for ’52 portraits’ at Sadler’s Wells.
“When you laugh, you change and when you change the whole world changes around you.” – Dr Madan Kataria, medical doctor and founder of Laughter Yoga
‘Thank you very much…for 16 minutes of « Sérénité , bien-être et joie ».’
‘Absolutely enchanting to listen to….started my day with right (and restorative!) laugh.’
