Writing Dance med Jonathan Burrows
Choreographer Jonathan Burrows leads a three day intensive workshop investigating
choreographic and compositional process, performance and philosophies, questioning how a
dance can be made and what it might communicate to someone watching. Practical work will
concentrate on short task-based exercises looking at how to find material and work with time, to
hold the attention of an audience and make them care what happens next. Days will be
punctuated also with viewpoints on other mediums and ways of working, asking all the time
what dance can do and what it can't do.
This workshop is for dance and performance artists and professionals with experience of
performing and making, who are interested in re-examining and extending their own process and
