‘We Know That Everybody Dances’ Workshops at Juncture 2016
Posted: 3 August 2016
We Know That Everybody Dances is a series of artist-led workshops presented by Juncture 2016, exploring creative collaboration with people who aren’t trained to dance/people who think they can’t dance/people who love to dance.
This series of workshops departs from the premise that non-professional dancers, and professional dance workers of all kinds, can form different modes of collaboration in the making of choreographic works. Drawing from works in Juncture 2016 and their practices at large, six innovative artists and artist-groups introduce their approaches in making work with non-professional participants, offering over three days a uniquely varied set of tools and objects for discussion which together expose a breadth of practice. Participants will be encouraged to dive into the methods of each artist as well as drawing connections and divisions across the sessions.
Wallflower director Richard Gregory and performer Jo Fong introduce Quarantine’s approach to creating work, beginning and ending with the people in the room, ahead of Wallflower performances on 28 and 29 October.
