Moving Bodies Workshop

This three-hour movement composition and dance knowledge exploration caters to all body types, ages and levels of experience.

 The first hour of the workshop introduces participants to movement theory by focusing on Forsythean Points of Co-ordination, playing with oppositions, as well as positive and negative spaces. The second hour of the programme continues to play with movement levels and body manipulation, by adding voice and soundscapes to the quality of the movement. The last hour of the workshop seeks to add narration (or storytelling), by which the participants use images of their daily lives, personal stories, song, and actual pedestrian movements, which are then applied to the body for choreography or movement composition. Much like method acting, the participants are able to add real emotion to the quality of the movement by contextualising their points of movement.
