The Palm of Your Hand#2 – WORKSHOP
A workshop for sighted and non-sighted people
The piece Palm of Your Hand#2 was created in 2016, as part of The Humane Body Project. The aim was to work for blind / partially sighted audiences. In the process of remaking the work, we were confronted with our own strong visually-oriented bias as dancers / performers / makers. This bias informs our way of dancing together and how we converse about the work. Essentially, everything about how we interact as a group. As part of this workshop, we would like to discuss and experiment with physical tasks, generating ideas that might challenge some of these visual assumptions. We will propose several movements that invite participants to enter into the movement and performance making from a less visual starting point. For the first part of the week, we will work on new ideas. The second part of the week we will introduce the choices and ideas behind The Palm of Your Hand#2. Both shares will be part practice-based and conversation-based. People can also join in without participating in the physical explorations.
The Palm of Your Hand #2 is part of the EU-Project The Humane Body.
