DANCE OF LIKENESS IS A MOVEMENT-BASED CREATIVE WORKSHOP THAT EXPLORES OUR ANCESTRAL STORIES THROUGH MOVEMENT AND PERFORMANCE PRACTICE.
WHAT YOU CAN GAIN
Practical performative and movement tools for your own practice (actors, dancers, performers)
A self-reflective and therapeutic experience that helps you reconnect with yourself and others through movement and performance (tools for drama therapist, psychologist, coaches)
An innovative approach to storytelling through movement-based devising (dramaturgs, directors, writers)
Inspiring concepts for creative expression and leadership (visual artists, musicians, creative leaders)
The workshop is applicable for people from various backgrounds. No matter your background, this workshop offers a space for personal growth and artistic expression, providing a creative and self-reflective environment for those seeking a challenge. Through shared movement training and creative collaborations with other workshop participants, this workshop will emphasise our shared experiences, offering an innovative and creative lens through which we can view our journeys.
