This movement/music workshop led by Deborah Baddoo MBE (dance) and Steve Marshall (Music), will explore concepts of freedom, and approaches to combining narrative with improvisation. Participants will be taken on a journey responding to the stimulus, being present and developing new ideas using improvisation as a choreographic tool.
State of Emergency will provide a collaborative workshop focusing on the creation and development of material through dance and music improvisation. Using words as a stimulus, participants will explore narrative, rhythm, and emotion. Working in pairs and small groups, participants will build material based on themes of freedom and what this means for them. Participants will drill down to unearth new ideas, by dissecting words and exploring their rhythm and meaning as well as the emotion behind them. Musicians and dancers will work together to create collaborative responses. There will be an opportunity for the group to share their creations and reflect on the concepts explored.
Suitable for ages 14 and over.
This event is priced as “Pay What You Can” with a guided suggestion of £10 to £15
