Dancing Politics


A one-day workshop in which we enacted and reflected upon modes of political communication and organisation through dance and choreography. The workshop sought to challenge ideas of what a dance is and how it might be made. The morning of the workshop focussed on political speeches to make movement and speech material, while in the afternoon we created group dances, using a range of political decision-making process from dictatorship to democracy.
