About this event

The course will look in particular at proxemic strategies that allow us to be together across open space, intimate space and public space. The workshop is experiential, aimed at developing personal practice and will lead into performance practices.

Drawing on his vast experience of integrated performance, Adam will introduce accessible pathways to the methodologies that underpin his improvisational and choreographic work.

The course is open to all those interested in movement and text. It is open to experienced dancers and also to those who consider themselves ‘non-dancers’ but would like to discover more about the moving body, and the body in space.

Food and drink

Breakfast and dinner each day – made with fresh, locally-sourced produce by our award-winning team – are included: one less thing to worry about during your stay.
