What MOVES You?

artist-led conversation
07.04.21 | 2:00pm – 3:30pm
Online via Zoom

What makes you tick? What spurs you on? What shifts your thoughts? 

Dawn Hartley, Julia McGhee, Niamh O’Loughlin and Skye Reynolds embark on a new project What Moves You? exploring the question through movement and dance sessions in partnership with communities linked to The Byre Theatre, Lyth Arts Centre, The Brunton Theatre and Lyra. 

Join the team for an artist-led conversation to find out more about the start of this journey and to hear from guests, Christine Devaney and Angus Balbernie, who will share their experiences of making and supporting dance recently.

Angus observes - The last year has seen a huge change in how teaching, making, sharing and creating dance has happened. Teaching and creating on Zoom, sharing dance from our sitting rooms. Isolated dance-bodies. A million dance films made!  So how do makers now make? What has happened to the spaces dance happens in? How can we re-embody the choreographic process in real bodies and spaces, in and out of digital frames?

Christine adds - By considering what ‘stopping’ and ‘keeping going’ have meant to me over this last year, I’ll reflect and share how my creative practice has been impacted as well as the joys of venturing off into some, still unfamiliar territory. 

Join this creative conversation; ideal for anyone interested in dance in participatory settings.
