Challenge Gravity Without Fear, Taste Risk Without Danger

17 June 2017

This workshop is for dance practitioners who work with older people, or would like to, to inspire, learn and share.

It will focus on:

- exercise structures to use as a body warm-up and as a movement training. Bone structure, joints and deep musculature. Working from the floor, then seated, then in the space

- concepts from Mariantonia’s work

- movement that recognizes the worth of older people

- tools to challenge gravity without fear, taste risk without danger

- individual and group movement research work

- personal musicality and rhythm

- dance as artistic project

- dance as social project

- why do we dance? Dance as life’s energy. The joy of dancing.

Mariantonia Oliver runs her own company in Palma, Mallorca. She is visiting the UK to present a key note at the Culture, Health and Wellbeing Conference in Bristol, and will be working with Grace and Growl Dance Company to create a short piece for the conference.

Tickets £25, available from Activate Performing Arts, contact rosalind@activateperformingarts.org.uk
