Savannah Theis is an artist living in London (UK), training in a somatic facilitation approach called Processwork. Devising and drawing on improvisational techniques from a range of fields, including intergroup dialogue, drawing, writing, choreography, somatic practices and the healing arts, she develops perception exercises exploring how different forms of sensorial attention alter how we relate to ourselves, one another and our surroundings. Often collaborating and co-creating settings for participation, she is interested in communal learning processes and the conditions facilitating how we speak, listen, move and make sense together. Currently evolving through workshops, drawing, performance and video, her work invites consideration of the ways in which different modes of sensing and relating open up understanding of our habits, potentials for change, and capacities to respond.

Recent projects include facilitating a series of somatic workshops as part of Maike Hemmers’ exhibition ‘This deep becomes palpable’ at Kunstinstituut Melly, Rotterdam (2022), running an online group using drawing and movement to explore personal and collective dreaming within body symptoms (2021), and working as dramaturg and voice performer for ‘Keep in touch’, Schauspielhaus Zürich, directed by Maja Renn (2021). In 2017 she completed an MFA in art praxis at the Dutch Art Institute.
