Walk Move Gesture Dance: pedestrian & abstract movement for performance.
This workshop encourages the exploration of movement as a creative tool for theatre and performance artists who wish to develop their physical presence through clarity of movement and embodiment. Walk Move Gesture Dance, will explore the pedestrian act of walking, the ways in which movement can enhance a work of theatre, the direct action of gesture and choreographic possibilities within theatrical contexts.
Over this two day workshop, participants will have the opportunity to explore the ways they move, the ways they want to move and develop patterning and clarity within their bodies. Through exercises, observation and conversation, this workshop uses a variety of techniques in which we can, as a group, discover a greater sense of confidence within the use of movement in our art forms, whether it be as simple as picking up a glass of water, or as intricate as a choreographic phrase.
