In conjunction with the festival ”Talking & Props”, Weld invites you to a three-day workshop led by the British dance artists Jane Bacon and Vida Midgelow. Together they have developed Creative Articulations Process (CAP). Shifting between moving and writing, you will explore felt sense, somatic and languaging processes to enhance capacities to be fluent in and about moving and movement based making.
Supporting the deepening of practice, the workshop will elaborate the six facets of CAP – from opening to outwarding – and develop creative skills in awareness, tracking and writing, providing participants with the resources to use CAP in relation to your own work. CAP has been developed by Jane & Vida over a period of some fifteen years in the Choreographic Lab and as part of their teaching in Higher Education. The workshop is for movement based practitioners that wish to deepen their work through processes of articulation and was developed as a method for undertaking Artistic Research/ Practice as Research.

Maximum group of participants: 20
Sign up with a short description of your background in practices of choreography, dance, somatics and/or writing, and your current activity within the field of arts and/or research. Maximum ten lines, in English.
