This Collective Dance day course is about discovering the power of collective movement. The workshop includes creative exploration of group formations, collective gestures and movement states and is focused on listening to each other, moving together, stopping and starting at the same time. Group game exercises play with the roles of ‘leader’ and ‘follower’, reflecting on the difference in expressing movement collectively versus individually. What gets emphasized, what gets lost?
At the end of the day, everyone learns a Dance score made out of simple actions like walking, repeating a gesture, standing, creating formations and shapes in the space where synchronicity and listening inform the rest of the choreography. If you always wanted to experience a collective power of dance and movement, this is your chance to dive right in!
