The workshop:

The workshop will take place over two days – Saturday 17th & Sunday 18th November – 10am-5pm, with an hour for lunch and two rest breaks.

The workshop will consist of a number of movement ideas and exercises that will celebrate and energise collective movement. Lucy will guide using tasks, ideas and suggestions and you are invited to follow, interpret and develop.

–  The workshop is free to attend.

– Participants’ travel expenses within London will be covered. We have a limited number of bursaries for those outside of London, please describe your travel requirements in your application.

– This workshop is open to people of different abilities and levels of experience. Please let us know of any access requirements in your application email.

– Catering will be provided on both days.

– As the workshop will be filmed, participants may be asked to wear a small amount of makeup at certain points throughout the weekend – applied and removed by a professional makeup artist.

The workshop will be filmed by Webb-Ellis and some of this material will be incorporated into a new film installation that will premiere in a central London gallery in 2019. Incorporating documentary, archive, dance, music and science fiction, the collaged film will explore the uncertainty of contemporary existence through the lens of adolescence, and our human relation to the natural world.

You and a parent or guardian will be asked to sign a release form consenting to your inclusion in the film.

 

More about Lucy Suggate:

Lucy’s work investigates how individual and collective expression can work in choreographic situations. She is interested in how moving together can enable aspects of synchronisation and cooperation.

Can we become one giant, moving- thinking sculptural, physical mass?

 

More about Webb-Ellis:

Caitlin and Andrew Webb-Ellis are British/Canadian artist filmmakers working in film, installation and performance. They weave the images, encounters, stories and sounds of their personal experiences into work that seeks to address what it is to be human in these strange times, and the boundaries between self and other. Coincidence and fiction play a significant role. Find out more about past works and exhibitions at webb-ellis.org.
