POSTPONED – Workshopping Perilously Efficient Movement, Deborah Hay

Due to the suspension of international activity, this workshop is cancelled for now. Independent Dance and Dance North Scotland are looking at the possibility of postponing it.

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.
