BODYECOLOGY

BodyEcology is a practice centred in relationship and inclusion. Zsuzsi Soboslay is its founding practitioner. She works as a performer and director, choreographer, artist, writer and bodywork therapist across the eastern states of Australia. The practice makes contemporary some of the most ancient shamanic principles: that everything has life and ‘language’ and deserves our consideration and respect.

The term ‘ecology’, in our daily lives, relates to how we take care of ourselves, how we caretake and relate to our landscape and each other, and whether or not we feel ‘at home’.  Such thinking can make a great difference to our health and wellbeing and the choices we feel free to take in our lives.

Performance projects range from site-specific events to inclusive community classes, professional collaborations for the concert stage and events at national institutions such as the National Gallery of Australia, the CSIRO and the National Film and Sound Archive.

Zsuzsi is currently focussing on ecology, inclusion projects, immigration history and the refugee experience. She has curated three nationally-significant museum exhibitions. Her work as a writer spans essays, playscripts, and two decades of writings on music, dance, art, theatre and performance. She has recently completed a PhD on care ethics in community arts.
