About the workshop:
Starting each day with a morning class, Theo will be inviting people to bring attention to their perceptive experience of the space, of the other dancers and of their own moving body to find greater lucidity in action and a sense of connection within the group. This will be followed by led movement patterns, phrase work and group improvisations that encourage articulate and expansive dancing.

Theo will then share a range of exploratory and creative tasks from various creative processes, many of which aim to divert performers self consciousness by focusing on responses to touch, to the visual field, to conditions of time, to language, to vivid imagery and to imagined realities. Theo will be cultivating a generous and inclusive safe space for all those that attend.

When? Saturday 21 - Sunday 22 September, 11am - 5pm
Where? Northern School of Contemporary Dance, Studio 3
