The New Empowering School is a place for a community of movers and shakers conceived by Project O.
Based at Toynbee Studios for ten weeks this spring, Project O will be working with a group of participants with a focus on engaging with the body as an agent of movement, politics, desire, self and dance. A space of permission, discussion, transformation and revelation through languages of the body-mind.
The School is for both trained and non-trained movers and celebrates moving for the pure shameless mad joy of it, for the reveal of it and for the labour of it.
Project O is a collaboration between Alexandrina Hemsley and Jamila Johnson-Small.
The New Empowering School is part of Project O’s creative process for their current work SWAGGA with Charlotte Cooper and Kay Hyatt and has been supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and an Artsadmin Artist’s Bursary.
