How much? How little? When? To go or to stay? To speak or to listen? To give or to take? To be in the middle, to be on the outside or to be among? To belong or to long for?

Inevitably our attitudes are always present in the way we move and are influenced by our environment. We can play with those attitudes by moving differently and by embodying different modes or expressions of life in our movement improvisations.

The workshop will run at The Daghdha Space Monday & Tuesday 24 & 25 February 10.00 - 5.00 pm with a break for lunch at 1.00 - 2.00 pm
And at the Irish Academy for World Music and Dance on Wednesday 26 February 10.00 - 5.00 pm and Thursday 27 February 10.00 - 1.00 pm

As well as patterns and pathways within our individual practice, we shall explore the communication that happens between us in the changing moment, identifying, accepting and disrupting habits as a way of opening up new choices, a new movement vocabulary and fresh resources for imaginative and creative work.

This workshop is hosted by the MA in Contemporary Dance Performance at UL. In association with UL, a small number of places are available for professional dance artists and actors with movement training. The workshop will last 3.5 days and will take place
