Event description
Explore incorporating text into dance performance in this one-day workshop with award-winning choreographer Deborah Slater.

About this event

Do your performances take inspiration from poetry, writing, or other text sources?

Are you looking to deepen your understanding of the connection between voice, body, and performance?

This workshop is designed for performance-makers who are looking for new approaches to working with text and incorporating it into their work. Guided by master choreographer Deborah Slater, participants will spend the day investigating the connections between spoken word and movement, gaining practical techniques for generating and integrating text into performance. Come with a short nursery rhyme or poem that is memorized, plus a piece of writing you are hoping to explore further and utilize in performance. Participants may also generate original text.

Expect to write, speak, move, and connect during this 6 hour workshop. The first half will be dedicated to devising text, exploring voice + movement, and developing performances around writing. The second half will focus on participants’ chosen pieces of writing and workshopping how they may be utilized in performance. Space is limited to 8 participants to ensure that all participants have the opportunity to connect with Slater and other workshop attendees. No experience required; come with a sense of curiosity, openness & play.

Additional Details:

  • Non-native english speakers are welcome / proposed text can be non-english
  • There will be a 30-min lunch break; participants should plan to bring a sack lunch (microwave available). Snacks and water will be provided.
  • All participants must show proof of full vaccination prior to attending the workshop & must wear face masks over mouth and nose for the duration of the workshop. Should these guidelines shift, registrants will be notified prior to attending.
  • Further details about selected text will be sent following registration.
