This four-day workshop, over two weekends (30 Nov – 1 Dec and 14 and 15 Dec), introduces the practice and principles of the Creative Articulations Process(CAP). Shifting between moving and writing, you will explore felt sense, somatic and languaging processes to enhance capacities to be fluent in and about dancing and dance making.
Attending both Weekends is required.
Saturday runs from 11.30AM until 7.15PM including breaks.
Sunday runs from 10AM until 4PM including breaks.
Supporting the deepening of practice, the workshop will elaborate the six facets of CAP – from opening to outwarding – and develop creative skills in awareness, tracking and writing, providing participants with the resources to use CAP in relation to your own work.
CAP has been developed by Jane Bacon and Vida Midgelow over a period of some fifteen years in the Choreographic Lab and also prior to this as part of their teaching in Higher Education. They are committed to facilitating work that stays close to the body, and seek to bring to consciousness that which might otherwise be hidden or overlooked as physical, emotional, intuitive and perhaps even ineffable activities.
The workshop is for movement based practitioners that wish to deepen their work through processes of articulation and was developed as a method for undertaking Practice as Research. You may be a movement artist, dance maker, somatic practitioner, lecturer or artist-researcher.
A follow up questionnaire will follow before the event and after booking your place to get to know more about the group as a whole, including any access requirements.
*We want to make this experience accessible to as many people as possible. If the cost of this training is a barrier to your engagement, please contact Producer Jim Hendley as additional ticket subsidy is available on request. We will not ask about your reason for needing it.
Suitable for ages 18 and over.
