Workshop – “Urban Tones: Expanding Animations”

From Slow-Motion to Ticking, Gliding and isolations, this workshop will explore how these ways of moving can be expanded upon to develop narrative and character-driven dance performance. Going beyond the technique, the session fuses pedestrian action, character work and animation dance conventions to explore how these dances, influenced by animated stories on screen, can be the starting point for telling stories for all styles of movement makers.
