Creativity workshop – How do I tell a story?
What makes dance the unique form of art that it is and not just a series of movements? One thing more than anything else – telling a story.
When we create, how do we tell this story through our dance? How do we tell it without using words?
What character do I choose to be and how can a character help me tell my story? Or what happens when the character starts to tell a story of its own?
“Dreams I have Dreamt in the Studio” is a solo piece, that tells something using different characters, different emotions.
Learning some combintaions from the piece would be a place for us to start, and we will take it from there into trying different things that will help us find our creating characters, using movement, emotion, story and music.
We will spend our time together trying to find our own voice within the creation and our creativity.
