I am a queer multidisciplinary artist, somatic researcher and holistic bodyworker based in Toronto, Canada. With backgrounds in contemporary dance, musical composition, videography and healing work, my journey has been one of creativity and curiosity. I have lived in 5 countries, planted trees, worked on organic farms, taught piano, performed on stages in Berlin, NYC, Montreal & Toronto. www.robertkingsbury.ca
Over a decade of arts work and a rich family life have fostered a core motivating principle of being engaged in the investigation of relational embodiment. Dance, music and bodywork have helped me to move to come further into embodiment as a queer man. I have worked through my own postural imbalances, relational/developmental trauma and slowly re-negotiated intense unresolved states both of anxiety and depression that were held in my body. I aim to be a support for anyone who is drawn to this path of deep resolution and renewal.
