Movement improvisation is a transformational practice that offers embodied understanding of complex living systems and how we function with and in them. This paper argues that ensemble movement improvisation destabilizes the conceptual dualism between mind and body, and provides the opportunity to develop our capacities for responding to complexity, the unforeseen and the unfamiliar with increased agility, ease, creativity and cooperation. This paper argues that these are the kinds of capacities needed for systemic health across all human ecologies today.
