I'm collaborating with two fellow PhD students, Francisco Sani and Satkirti Sinha, on a short series of workshops exploring power, affirmative action and co-creation in practice based research.
My workshop, The Disruptive Power of Joy, is on Thursday 11th May at DMU in Leicester, drop me a line if you'd like to join! Here's the blurb:
Who are we when we dance like nobody’s watching?
This workshop plays with the embodied states of vulnerability, pleasure and community, using a toolkit of games and movement provocations drawn from theatrical clowning and contemporary dance. It asks how we could explore the Socialist Feminist idea of Radical Happiness (see Lynne Segal (2018) Radical Happiness: moments of collective joy. Brooklyn: Verso Books) to enrich our practice research, performance making, and pedagogic approaches to physical performance.
Who could we be when we dance like everybody’s watching?
