Ready, Connected, Articulated
Theatre/Dance 3-Day Intensive Training

Tuesday 15 – Thursday 17 April, 10.00am – 4.00pm
Yorkshire Dance
£125 (professional rate), £60 (student, recent graduate or concession) 

Paula Mór and Connor Quill host a three day intensive which looks at how the viewpoints, the Suzuki Method and Butoh can make us ready to create and perform in a connected and articulate way.

The residency looks at how composition and performance can be informed by an introduction to the nine physical viewpoints, Suzuki and Butoh. You will explore how movement is informed by connectedness, breath, presence and imagery, and using strict but simple composition techniques, create new material that is both immediate and energised.
