Workshop with Michael Keegan-Dolan
A workshop for dancers, actors and other performers on acquiring tools to re-connect with oneself.
“I celebrate myself, and sing myself,
And what I assume you shall assume,
For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.”
In this workshop we will aim to acquire some simple tools that gently guide us inwards so that over time, with discipline and with the correct application of these tools, it is possible, to strengthen or repair the connection with oneself.
Many relationships we form, many interactions we have, many of the things we do, make or say, can be beneficially changed by these simple but not necessarily easy adjustments.
It can only be good to remember to dance and to sing and to be ourselves, celebrate ourselves and move onward from there.
Co-hosted with STRUT Dance.
