Lab Learn: Mark Making and Movement (Lambeth Community Programme)
Wed 9 May 2018, 10am–2pm
Thu 10 May 2018, 10am–2pm

A workshop in partnership with the Institute of Imagination.

In these schools sessions aimed at Key Stage 1 classes in Lambeth, students will explore imaginative and sensorial experiences of cause and effect. We will look at the ways in which cause and effect play out in movement and the many ways in which the moving body is affected through cause and effect.

Activities include:

  • Testing the laws of cause and effect on Hexbug figures. Students can manipulate the figures and can map out journeys by mark-making onto large strips of paper. Students can create maps for movement exploration
  • Use our wind machine as a starting point for exploring cause & effect on materials and bodies.
  • Improvise through movement and play and perform to the rest of the group.

The workshop will be delivered using Siobhan Davies Dance’s methodology; supporting the children and their families to create and structure movement that communicate their ideas following an immersive experience, observing, questioning, tinkering and discussing. There are no taught steps. Questions will be discussed and answered through physical exploration.

Lab Learn: Mark Making and Movement is suitable for Key Stage 1 classes from schools located in Lambeth. There is no cost for this event, however spaces are limited. We will be working with 2 classes of 30 students on each day.

This event is fully booked.

The Lambeth Community Programme is supported by the Rangoonwala Foundation
