Seven days workshop will have two parts:

1. Good Morning Mash Up (Morning Class)
This morning dance class prepares the body and mind for creative work with others. We will call upon a guided practice focussing on developing awareness and sensitivity, strengthening the body, encouraging stamina, directing impulses and extending our sense of observation, imagination and pleasure. Part dance floor. Part movement research. Part thought-provoking body. Part body-provoking thought. Set to a soundtrack of eclectic music, this week of classes will encourage articulation and serious play.

2. Workshop Let’s Do This
This workshop presents different possibilities of working in a collaborative system, specifically in relation to dance, performance and choreography. We will investigate what it means to work together and to create collaboratively. By collectively developing questions that deal with performance, personal experience and contemporary society, we will take this material to decipher how we make decisions together and confront each other. What is it to be in a room together as performer and observer? How do we understand dischord? What are ways of understanding authorship? How do we create with a pluralist voice and yet with a deep personal positioning. 
We will engage in discussions, physical practices of observation and listening, written exercises, story-telling, movement research, developing practices of watching and doing, blurring the roles of maker, performer and spectator.
