Movers & Makers Workshop: The Breath – 14th August 2022

Sunday 14th August 2022 2-5pm at Sadler’s Wells (plus optional continued use of the studio between 5-6pm)

Welcome to our first of many Movers & Makers workshops. This workshop is open to all movers and makers of movement. Sarah Perry, Shapes in Motion founder & co-ordinator, will lead and curate the workshop, but will also invite attendees to pitch their ideas upon application to contribute to the session also; whether it be to share a solo sequence to gain feedback, to start to collaborate with another body to create, to teach a relevant exercise, movement inspired concept, lead a game/improvisation, try something new or something other to fit within the sessions chosen theme. Use your skills & share your skills, so as we learn & grow from one another. The diverse & varied skills of the group will be celebrated and hopefully we shall move and play in a multitude of ways. Some things may not work out as planned, that is ok, this is a safe place for us to move and explore together. You do not have to contribute, you can of course just move and enjoy the ride.

We offer you the space, the time and other bodies & minds to share, play, explore and discuss with. 

This workshop’s theme will be the breath, you can take this in any way that you will, but it’s good to have at least a starting point from which to move & be inspired from. 

There will be a photographer on site to capture the afternoon and we shall offer each participant at least 2 photos of yourselves in motion for you to use on social, websites, promo … as part of the workshop package. A release form will need to be signed prior to the workshop as consent.
