With Emily Solstice Tait and Anna-Laure Koop
February 6 – 10, 2023 from 6 PM to 9 PM | Mainstage at Théâtre Cercle Molière | Limited spots | By reservation only | For adults | Bilingual (English & French)
This workshop provides a chance to grow as an individual in a group environment where play is at the foundation of understanding our bodies in collective ensemble. All curious dancers and movers are invited to join this workshop to nourish their personal practice in an exploration of group impulses using space, time, and storytelling. Join us for a five-day facilitated movement workshop with discussions and theme-based group exploration through the lens of contemporary dance.
