Independent Dance (ID) is an artist-led organisation working responsively to support and fuel dance artists in all roles, at all stages of their career, and of all physicalities.
We nurture a practice-led, peer-supported international community of dance artists, with a particular focus on inclusive body-based research enriched by cross-disciplinary and diverse approaches.
Our programme of classes and workshops, led by internationally renowned artists and complemented by projects and events, invites artists and audiences to deepen enquiry and exchange ideas.
Fest en Fest
Sat 8 Feb, 10am – 2pm
Independent Dance is excited to be working in partnership with Fest en Fest, hosting a workshop opportunity at Laurie Grove, Deptford.
Performance duo QUARTO will lead a one day workshop, Communal Rope, dealing with rope as an emblem, as a riddle and a problem, collectively encountering its qualities and dealing with its entanglements.
Embryology & BMC
Olive Bieringa is a maker of dances, installations, films, festivals, and workshops from Aotearoa/New Zealand. She is part of BodyCartography Project with Otto Ramstad.
She will lead a weekend workshop of experiential embryology through the lens of Body-Mind Centering® this January.
Our classes extend beyond the maintenance of physical condition and technical skill, to promote a holistic approach to participants’ ongoing development as expressive and creative artists.
This season we welcome Janine Harrington, Elisa Vassena and Beatrice Allegranti, who are leading ID class for the first time, alongside Stephanie McMann, Lauren Potter, Kirsty Alexander and Lizzy Le Quesne, among others.
