Participants identifying as disabled are welcome.
No previous dance or choreographic experience required.
Join a day of exploration with movement improvisation and composition that starts from where you are.
In this workshop led by dancer and maker Annie Hanauer, and dance artist Louise Ahl (AKA Ultimate Dancer)we will get acquainted with different ways of working creatively with movement, audio-visual description and text to uncover composition within improvisation and find new ways of working accessibly in choreography.
The day will consist of two sessions; the first half led by Annie begins with an energising full body and voice warm-up, followed by improvisational games designed to get physical, connect to each other and enhance the ability to notice and respond. In the second half of the day, led by Louise, you will work with discovering composition within improvisation, transferring movement into writing and audio-visual description to uncover new starting points for creating from different positions and access points.
Part of this workshop has grown out of Annie’s work-in-progess titled Exercises in Telepathy, a structured improvisation using movement, voice and BSL, which will be shown at our Open Choreography Performance Evening on 8 March.
This event is open to all and no previous experience is required to take part.
