Open Space 


In space resounds what emanates from us as we make dance and words. Space is a central area of obsession in the dancer's work and concerns both geometrical and emotional powers as a language of sensitivity and communication. This workshop deals with poetry and dance produced in a performing space. The workshop is supported by Arts Council England, Middlesex University and Chisenhale Dance Space. 

The workshop will take place from Monday 13 to Saturday 18 July, 10am – 5pm (except Thursday 16, 10am – 1pm).

The cost of the full workshop is £160 (including all events).
