A movement workshop with artist Florence Peake
in collaboration with Block Universe & Chisenhale Dance Space
Thursday, 1 June, 10:30- 13:30
Drawing on somatic dance practices including contact improvisation, Skinner Releasing Technique and Florence Peake’s own art and dance background this creative movement workshop relates to sensitivity, connectedness and integration.
In an ever changing political landscape, the half-day workshop fosters a sensorial and democratic environment by revealing and releasing conscious and subconscious desires. Incorporating writing, drawing, voice and movement.
This workshop is open to all. No prior movement experience.
About the facilitator:
Florence Peake is a London-based artist and choreographer. With extensive training in dance and a background in painting, her performance practice combines a variety of media—from drawing to sculpture—in relationship to the moving body. Site and audience, live and recorded text, wit and humour are key to her work. Her interdisciplinary projects, made both independently and collaboratively, have been exhibited and performed nationally and internationally since 1995 in New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Prague, Sweden and Latvia. Peake’s work has also been commissioned and shown at prestigious venues such as the National Portrait Gallery (2008), National Review of Live Art (2009), Yorkshire Sculpture Park (2012), Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art (2013) and Hayward Gallery (2014).
