A 2 – day open intensive workshop for artists and those with an interest in gender.
As part of the European project Performing Gender British dance artist Hannah Buckley and Spanish playwright and dramaturg Sergio Martinez delivered an 8 day workshop for local dancers in Madrid. They invite you to join them at Yorkshire Dance as they share elements of this workshop and their research.
Taking inspiration from nature and the idea of transformation Hannah and Sergio will offer metaphors and imagery as starting points to explore how a fluid identity can express itself and if it’s possible to transcend gender.
The workshop is both a collective experience and also a space for people to bring their own individual perspective, understanding and questions in relation to gender.
Dance training is not necessary for this workshop, but an interest in moving is.
