Stop Trying to Smooth the Folds, Bumps and Creases in Performance Practice – These Trip Hazards Are Where the Magic Lives.

Research Studio | 10am-1pm | £7 suggested donation


(Full info for this session coming soon.)


OPENLAB sessions are open to any performers: dancers, musicians, actors and anyone interested in presence and awareness in movement.

The facilitators of OPENLAB are also participants “in” the session and participants can propose their ideas for a future session. We are looking for proposals for facilitated sessions during the  Summer Terms 2020. If you’d like to facilitate one of these sessions in the future come to one of our sessions to find out more or email Antonio de la Fe.

The OPENLAB sessions alternate between different facilitators. You can see the full programme for the Autumn Term 2019 here.

The sessions function on a pay-what-you-can contribution basis to cover expenses and as an incentive for the facilitator of the session. We suggest a contribution of £7 for each session. Cash Only.
