Contemplative Dance Workshop

September 20, 2014 @ 11:00 - 16:00

Contemplative Dance Workshop with Bernadette Divilly

Improvisation and Composition

As part of Walking Wisdom Woodquay

September 20th

Galway Rowing Club

11 – 4pm

Experience the structures for contemplative dance practices developed by Barbara Dilley as a pathway towards developing dance scores for city space. We will develop spatial maps to express the dance. Mindful of our gait-ways we use walking, sitting, standing, lying to create spontaneous composition alone and together.

Supported by breath, posture and slow motion, unexplained suddenness, we invite delight and dance improvisation.

Generating a field of deep play, we will awaken ourselves to dancing and being danced by the city through entering the present moment.  We have everything we need to generate new scores and insightful solutions to city problems.

Let’s dance! Inside the studio and outside – making being matter

Diversity of age, movement styles, body shapes and cultural influences warmly welcomed.

For professional and community dancers and other artists and friendly observers.

Will be Applied to developing new work for: Walking Wisdom Woodquay Urban Design Project

“Walking Wisdom” is a collaborative project between Dance Movement Artist Bernadette Divilly and The Imaginative Neighbourhood Project Woodquay.

Supported by The Arts Council and Galway City Council partnership with Irish Ómos Áite, Irish Place Studies NUI. Galway and CKI, Galway City Architects Office, Town Hall Theatre, Galway Dance Project and the Galway One World Centre
