A creative workshop presented by Curious Seed & The Work Room

11 & 12 January 2022, @ The Work Room studio, Tramway


Begin the new year in the company of other dance artists who are keen to delve into their creative movement practice and develop new approaches in a playful and structured space. Over two days, Christine Devaney along with two of the company’s long-standing creative collaborators (musician and visual artist) will facilitate collaborative explorations and experiments to warm into the body and imagination again: preparing for the year ahead.

Curious Seed and The Work Room are collaborating on this workshop to create opportunities for dance artists in Scotland, to reconnect with their practice and the community after the impact of the pandemic.
