Workshopping Perilously Efficient Movement with Deborah Hay

Mon 24 – Fri 28 Aug | 10am-5pm
Expressions of interest open on 06 March 2020

This workshop is a partnership between Dance North Scotland and Independent Dance, and will take place at Findhorn Foundation Community and Eco-village, Moray.

Is all art perilously efficient? Might this be the very nature of dance but we have not yet attributed this language to it? What I mean by perilously efficient is that dance, for me, is a form of survival. And therefore, to test my ability, my capacity to survive as a choreographer and performer, I choose to reduce stimulation that would otherwise influence the choreography, the practice, and the performance of my work. I am not ignorant of the danger in being ordinary nor the lack of quality in being efficient. A pre-determined sequence of movements will framework this collective research.
