When we move we communicate. It is a constant. Our bodies speak. This workshop focuses onhow we might engage our body's capacity for communication. We will look at simple creation techniques that promote meaningful performance and explore how we generate meaningful narrative. Through our connection to other bodies in space we will create stories and relationships that ultimately lead towards movement that moves, emotionally and physically. It will be a demanding session for anyone who attends, it will inspire and offer the opportunity to create and collaborate with other curious people like yourself. Our workshop will welcome you into a playful atmosphere of practical enquiry.
