Join IOU and choreographer, performance-maker, and community arts facilitator Eve Honey Wagster for a workshop that explores our everyday movement, recognising where patterns and interests emerge.

In the session you can play, experiment, mess up and be guided through improvisational tasks where you will have the freedom to investigate and create. You will practice some dynamic movement phrases that incorporate curving, spiralling, arching, and balancing and the workshop will culminate in you weaving together a “self-portrait”.

You do not need dance experience to attend this workshop. If you are interested in moving your body in an inclusive workshop environment, this is for you. You will have the option to move at your own pace when needed…

Eve has a wealth of experience as both a teacher and as an artist working across a range of artistic disciplines, all routed within dance and contemporary performance
