I am really excited that this 2 day workshop will be the first Research Space at Independent Dance.
Here is a description from Independent Dance’s website and links to book;
How does the dancer speak?
A Research Space led by me, Katye Coe
With a strong belief that dancing matters and can speak boldly into political and social arenas, Katye proposes that the time in which dance is a vehicle for change has already begun….
This lab is for people who have recent and / or significant experience as a professional dance performer; it is not limited to any particular style or context for dance, with the clear aim that people from different fields, genres, cultural contexts and work situations will attend and form a weekend community.
Katye invites dancers to share her research and questions:
What does the experience of dancing bring when it is spoken?
Why and how does this body of experience matter?
The weekend will consist of a series of proposals in the studio and beyond. These proposals will be encountered as a group, through activities of dancing, talking, sharing food and finding the written word. It will also include an informal, discursive exchange with invited members of the public on Sunday afternoon.
The workshop runs like this;
Sat 18 May | 12pm – 6pm
Sun 19 May | 10am – 5pm
Price: Flat fee £80
