These workshops facilitate professional encounters with international and UK-based artists visiting London, and focus on a particular aspect of dance performance or choreography.
They are programmed throughout the year; to hear about forthcoming workshops subscribe to our newsletters.
We endeavour to make all of our workshops and classes accessible to artists with disabilities. Please read more here and contact us to discuss any particular questions or requirements you may have.
With Helen Poynor
People moving ‘independently’, dancers in a studio or pedestrians in a town square, create a constantly changing landscape, which they are both affected by and contribute to.
Non-stylised movement scores will be used to explore the inter-relationship of moving beings in space.
Space is encountered materially, moving through levels and layers, from upright to the floor, from close to the body to the spaces between bodies.
Moving incorporating breathing, sensing and seeing strengthens the capacity to be in touch with oneself and simultaneously open and responsive to the environment. This fosters an embodied sense of presence in relation to others, in performance and in daily life.
With Deborah Hay
The body is capable of so much more than what it can do. For example, sound coming from the piano was more or less constant until John Cage created the prepared piano by introducing different objects into its’ body. These components altered the piano’s harmonics. Similarly, questions will be applied to our bodies to alter the harmonics of movement through the practice of performance and choreography.
