This proposal is modelling possible approaches for leading a group for people with different abilities. We see how we adopt the same material for the blind, for wheelchair users, autistic people, children, or elderly people. I show videos of my work and the ArtMan Association’s work: to demonstrate inclusivity in closed intitutes, street art or theatre performances.

- TITLE OF THE ACTIVITY: Abilities for Inclusive dance   

- DETAILED CONTENT DESCRIPTION (150 words or more):

This proposal is modelling possible approaches for leading a group for people with different abilities. First  we have a ’verbal circle’ allowing everyone to have the focus (verbally if possible) than  we will have a ’moving part’ that aims to introduce more or less the same material (themes) adapted for different groups. We try various situations: how it works for the blind, for the wheelchair users, for autistic people, or children, or elderly people. We would experience slight differences also in the context: is it a jam, a class, a rehearsal? How the very same material can transform depending on the changing surroundings?  As resolution we make art – we make a 5 min.long performance.

After a brief discussion I would show pictures and videos of my work and the ArtMan Association’s work: to introduce and demonstrate how these approaches can be used in extreme situations: in closed intitutes, street art, kindergardens, family contact jams, or dance/theatre performances.
