Makers' Playground: Choreographic Workshop

with Hetain Patel


Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

This is a two-day workshop for early stage dance and performance makers, to share and develop their voices as artists.

Led by artist Hetain Patel you will look at how to explore ideas in and out of the studio, and how to develop these ideas into work that can connect with audiences. Together you will create strategies for dramaturgical thinking around the following questions:

- How can you unpack an idea and realise it to its fullest?
- How do you know when an idea has run its course and how do you move on?
- When do you need to take a wider approach, and when do you need to focus? How do you do either of these things?
- How do you side-step imitating heroes and instead use their influence to draw out your own unique voice? 

Using the diversity of practices in the room as an ally, you will also look what makes work distinctive. 

Through a series of playful quick-fire practical tasks, and group discussions, you'll explore concrete ways to tackle all these questions. You'll also hone skills in making, viewing, and feeding back, and takeaway tools to move forward as a maker and develop your artistic voice.

Please Note: Attendance on both days is essential. There are limited places for this workshop, so booking is neccessary.

Times: Fri 8 & Thu 14 Nov, 10am - 6pm
Duration: 960 mins
Venue: at The Place
