Title: ‘Hangout Space’

Moving Waste’ is an ongoing collaboration between artists Finlay Forbes-Gower and Alice Millen.

The duo aim to explore the abundance of waste discarded in the everyday and their human response and relationship to it. Through movement and play waste is reactivated and the redundant materials and objects are transformed into a new life form. ‘Moving Waste’ uses the human body and found materials in collaboration with one another, creating sculpture and live performance.

Within this particular body of work, the net (made from old vegetable bags) forms the role of an enzyme. Within it’s given surrounding, It holds, regulates and disperses wasted material.

Title: 'Participatory Performance Workshops'

Facilitators: Mara Vivas, Julia Testa, Frieda Shao Shin


Mara Vivas – Leading a Choreographic-Process-Sharing with an interactive audience-dancer experience where audience members use choreographic tools to create their own version of the piece. No dance experience is required to participate, open to all ages and walks of life.

Julia Testa – ‘Dissolving Practice”. Participants will explore breath intensively in order to dissolve: boundaries, patterns, fears. After the inner exploration in both previous sessions, this session will drive to more sweaty active class with exploration of aesthetics through sensations

Frieda Shao Shin – ‘My idea is to continue my research on Sonic Body. I have been researching how far our body could go in using our hearing as a source of creativity, understanding towards the world and deciphering our inner world. The shift of body‘s awareness and consciousness from visual-led to audio-led creates room for new perspectives to emerge. That allows at least for me availability within myself to rest in, reflect, respond and repurpose. There will be no audience in this performance workshop. We all participate, we all emerge.’

3pm – 4.30pm

Studio 7

Title: 'The L.O.V.E. Retreat' A Qigong Workshop

Facilitators: Wayne Harris (Training4Life)

Description: What makes Qi Gong, dance or movement feel so good? Is it the grace, the movements or the achievement of knowing a full form or routine. What ignites in your consciousness before you begin, before you make that all-important opening gesture? Or is your form a mere exercise, maybe a sequence of well-choreographed moves that is void of embodied interconnectivity. Your highest self-image is empowered by the love you have for your own existence, we grow by understanding what love is in relation to your highest self-image. The LOVE Retreat empowers the self to access the vessels inside the body and become more functional. Welcome to the deep reservoir of universal love that lay dormant within your own universe Y.O.U.

4.45pm – 6pm


Title: Closing & Reflections

Facilitators: Drs Alex Boyd & Andrea Maciel

Description: An opportunity to reflect on the Health & WELLth Festival and close with some collective connections through movement, music and song.
