Open Senses Festival presents....
Seke Chimutengwende Workshop: Mass, Material & Disturbance
Join Open Senses in a chance to experience the creative processes of choreographer Seke Chimutengwende’s latest group piece: Mass, Material & Disturbance.
In this one-day workshop we will explore the following questions:
How do we dance together? (Mass)
What is dancing made of? (Material)
What can we disturb through dancing? (Disturbance)
The day will include improvisation-based movement tasks, voice work and discussions and will culminate in an informal sharing.
Suitable for dancers, movement practitioners, physical performers and those interested in improvisation.
Seke Chimutengwende works in dance as a performer, choreographer and teacher. He has performed for companies such as DV8 Physical Theatre and Lost Dog and has performed his own solo improvisation work internationally since 2006.
