We will introduce a series of performance-making processes related to body movement and material exploration. We will begin by introducing materials to our participants, allowing time with them and getting to understand their properties through playful experimentation. Then, we will be getting into our bodies through mindful movement and multisensory awareness exercises, and move onto movement improvisation tasks with the chosen material.

Throughout the workshop, participants will learn how to explore their own ideas, concepts or stories through the imaginative interaction between bodies and materials. They will get the opportunity to explore how the properties of the materials can inform and inspire different movement qualities and narratives and how these processes lead to performance making.

This workshop is accessible to anyone, that are either curious about performance making, or they are already practitioners and they would like to enrich and expand their own creative practice. There is no requirement for previous training or knowledge. 

''Simple yet profound approach to performance making''
