Instant Dissidence bring their dance workshop to Bristol
Instant Dissidence joins us in Bristol for a one-off workshop at Trinity Arts Centre.
Storytelling and movement – a practical movement workshop by Instant Dissidence, based on the company’s methodology for developing SlowMo.
How do we make dances from personal stories? As a workshop participant, you will experience and play with processes that the company utilised to transform stories into dances in order to create SlowMo. We ask that you bring a short personal story to the workshop: the story should be hand-written, half an A4 page, and it should be about a place you have lived in in the past, or a place you have visited (anywhere other than Bristol). The workshop will be led by Instant Dissidence’s Artistic Director Rita Marcalo and one other member of the company.
All bodies and abilities are welcome at this workshop, though some experience in dance may be preferable.
This project has been generously supported by Perform Europe.
