Inclusive Workshop
Voice, movement and stillness in improvisation
Adam Benjamin | UK

An inclusive workshop that moves from simple accessible scores into complex and layered improvisations using voice, movement and stillness.

 

The workshop encourages informed choice-making, directed by individual interest, and leads toward a refined and flexible use of the senses. Valuing the spaces between as well as inside our encounters; exploring the edges of what we know - and dancing on occasion into the unknown. The workshop is respectful of individual needs for space, for rest and for challenge and is open to professional and community dancers.

 

Adam Benjamin is a prolific improviser, award winning choreographer, teacher, published author and painter who has inspired generations of dance artists, he teaches with humour and patience.
