Weekender Lab: A Necessary Ecology

Photo by Nadja Krueger

10am-5pm both days. £60. 

In this Weekender Lab, participants are invited to engage with materials, bodies and architectures through a series of improvisation sessions and discussions, which pay attention to states of being, becoming and decaying. Through improvisation, we will accumulate thought and action around dwelling, fixing, scaffolding and building. We will work with materials from the performance work Everything Fits in the Room such as rope, skins, fur, chains, a chair, a ladder, spices, bones, fruit – all of which are in dialogue with notions of decay or progress.

Each session will be followed by an exchange and layering of information that aims to foster a 'labour of care' as fundamental to being in the room.

This lab is open to all artists with an interest in choreographic thought and practice. No dance training is required. 

This Weekender Lab is presented by Artsadmin in partnership with Fierce Festival, Birmingham, where Simone's piece Everything Fits In The Room will be presented on 20 & 21 October.
