7th of August 2014  - Greenwhich Dance Agency - London - UK

Participants: Ana Dora Borges (P), Anne-Gaelle Thiriot (FR), Aristide Rontini (IT), Bel Pye (UK), Carmen Kraus (CAN), Clare Reynolds (UK), Davide Turrini (IT), Deborah Roach (UK), Juan Bautista (SP), Kimberley Harvey (UK), Lisa Cahill (IR), Magalie Saby (FR), Matt Shilcock (AU), Megan Armishaw (UK), Michela Turrini (IT), Mirjam Gasser (SZ), Oliver Fitzgerald (UK), Sophie Arstall (UK), Zoe Georgallis (CY) Andrej Gubanov (UK) and candoco dancers: Mirjam Gurtner (SZ),Rick Rogers (UK), Toke Strandby (UK), Laura Patay (FR), Andrew Graham (FR), Tanja Erhart (AU), Pedro Machado (Candoco co- artistic director) and Hanna Dye (Candoco learning manager).


The aim of the five day Lab was to train perception and composition awareness through a dialogue between sensorial explorations and their documentation.  I proposed to the group  to explore practices focusing on touch, vision and their relationship and  introduced elements of Lisa Nelson’s Tuning Scores . Participants circulated between dancing, drawing, writing, talking and filming to document their experience from ‘inside’ and ‘outside’.  They communicated their point of view through the documents they produced and  In that way,  shared their knowledge and taught each other’s.
