WORKING WITH PROPS – Rachel Tess
– workshop tisdagen den 9 juni kl. 9-12 – ONLINE
What are the objects we chose to have with us when dancing or choreographing? How do we relate to them with our bodies, what do they represent, and how do they create intended and unintended meaning? Through the workshop ‘Working with props’ we will use what we have in the rooms we are in, the rooms we spend time in continuously – every day objects – in combination with movement practices to question and understand the notion of scenic elements in dance and choreography.
