19th July 2016 from 10.30am to 4pm

Age: Suitable for adults

Studio TS3,
University of Exeter.

You are invited to a choreographic workshop developed out of a sharing of process between artist Jane Mason and Science Studies scholar Dr Astrid Schrader. This is made possible through an Exeter University artist residency, exploring the ways in which dialogue and movement between academic discourses and choreography meet.

Jane and Astrid have been collaborating around the themes of care, time and vulnerability, each looking after some living bioluminescent dinoflagellates in each of our homes.  The dinos (marine microbes) are tuned to a circadian rhythm, photosynthesizing during the day and glowing bright blue at night when disturbed or interacted with.

The choreographic workshop is an opportunity for people interested in movement and collaboration to physically explore a range of choreographic tasks that have arisen out of connections made during the process. Together we will work in response to ideas of weight, repetition, continuity, rupture and gravity, within a wider context that considers how we think about and what it means for us to care.

The workshop will be facilitated by Jane Mason.


All are welcome to this free event.  However, as places are limited, please book your ticket in advance here.
