nonstopping with Jeanine Durning

Sun 10 May 2020 | 11am – 5pm

Candoco Dance Company and Independent Dance are working in partnership to host this workshop with Jeanine Durning.

In 2020, New York based choreographer Jeanine Durning will make a new work on Candoco developing on her practice of nonstopping.

“I began my research with Candoco in much the same way I have begun most projects in the last decade, with a practice I call nonstopping. At its core, nonstopping is a process of undoing through, paradoxically, nonstop doing. It works with uncensoring movement and speech as acts of freedom and imperative force and change.”

This workshop will draw on, borrow from, and appropriate multiple sources and seemingly disparate forms to approach the nuanced ecologies of who we are and what we can imagine ourselves to be. 

We will bring all of who we are and what we can possibly bring to bear to be critical movers, radical problem-solvers, creative decision-makers, embodied philosophers, somatic inquirers, psycho-social experimentalists, time travellers, space invaders and perceptual gymnasts. Whether you come into the room to warm up or wake up, to shake up or settle in, to move or be moved, to hone attention or intention, we can come together to question, and challenge through practice, this form, that’s still forming, called dance.

A chance to engage with the company at the start of this new creation process. 

The ID programme is open to disabled and non-disabled dance artists. Our work is not based on a normative view of the human body, and we strive at all times to create a context where artists with disabilities work as equal participants. We learn about this continually from the artists with whom we work. The venue, Siobhan Davies Studios, is fully accessible to wheelchair users, with lifts to both floors. There are also two accessible parking spaces available on site.
The Roof Studio is fitted with an infra red audio system and both studios have an induction loop hearing system. We are currently not financed to provide BSL interpretation or audio description.
Please contact us to discuss any specific access requirements you may have.




Suitable for experienced disabled and non-disabled dancers.
