POSTPONED – Workshopping Perilously Efficient Movement, Deborah Hay

Due to Covid_19, this workshop is cancelled for now. Further information to follow.

Led by the renowned Deborah Hay (USA), this workshop is a partnership between Dance North Scotland and Independent Dance, taking place at Findhorn Foundation Community and Eco-village, Moray, Scotland.

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.
