Haunting, dance and colonial legacies: A dance workshop with Seke Chimutengwende
Saturday 21 October
10am to 1pm
Please join us for a workshop led by Seke Chimutengwende, creator of It begins in darkness
Seke will lead participants through some of the processes and material from his recent choreographic work, It begins in darkness, performed in the evening before at the Nuffield theatre (link to book here).
Looking at ghosts and haunted houses as metaphors for how histories of slavery and colonialism haunt the present, participants will embody states of fear and menace and channel the liminal spaces between the living and the dead, the human and the nonhuman, the real and the imagined.
This will be a practical workshop for dance artists and non-dancers alike and we ask that participants would need to feel comfortable moving and working with others. The workshop will create a supportive and non-competitive space to critically consider these themes through movement, voice and discussion.
There are limited spaces available so we advise booking as soon as possible. A booking fee of £5 applies (free for students).
Age advisory: 18+
