Disconnect and reunite your body and mind! Take part in a free workshop for dancers and dance-novices on the integration of text, movement and their inseparable embodiment.

Led by MADA artist-in-residence Richard Move, participants will be guided through dance composition and vocal exercises to enhance their awareness of the integration of movement, gesture and the spoken word. The workshop culminates in the creation and performance of a short ‘choreography’.

Move is Artistic Director of MoveOpolis!, a TEDGlobal Oxford Fellow and Professor of Drama, Theatre & Dance at Queens College, City University of New York (CUNY). Move’s commissions include productions for Mikhail Baryshnikov and the White Oak Dance Project, Opera Ballet of Florence, Guggenheim Museum, Dame Shirley Bassey and Deborah Harry.
