Art in Common - Image and Movement
Mon, 3 Apr 2017, 18:30 – Sun, 9 Apr 2017, 20:00 BST
Take part in this unique opportunity to work with choreographers and visual artists on a truly interdisciplinary project. Explore the connections between movement and image over four exclusive workshops where you will create choreography with shapes angles and lines, and then use these compositions as a basis for incorporating movement into the 2D practice.
- Work on choreographing your own piece
- Dance with calligraphy and line drawing
- Capture movement on paper
- Translate projected images into movement
During these workshops you will not only visualise and embody image through movement but also learn how to capture dance on paper using different techniques such as quick sketching and calligraphy.
By the end of the week you will be encouraged to compose your own choreography inspired by the images you have drawn throughout the previous workshops. The final workshop will be an exciting experiment where you will create choreography from projected images thus combining both practices into one performance.
