The workshop will invite participants to move, write, draw in whatever way they feel comfortable, with no need or pressure to conform to any style or ability or technique at all.
It will move from indoor to outdoor and back, and try to ask 7 questions about engagement with the living, surrounding world, and how to maybe explore these in ways of shaping interactions and connections that might be called moving into choreographic practice, or might be called just being there…
I’ve created around 85 pieces, directed, performed, taught and improvised around Europe, North and South America, Canada and the far east. Taught a lot at places like EDDC/ArtEZ, Scottish School of Contemporary Dance, Dartington College of Arts, Falmouth University and Northern School of Contemporary Dance, and was visiting professor of choreography at KNUA Seoul, and LEM Buenos Aires. Now I play the banjo left-handed and very badly, and after a lifetime of being in mountains and wilderness still go out walking and wondering, and still try to shape this into ways of exploring movement and choreographic practice.
