YES, BODIES is a solo and collective choreography workshop facilitated by GUSH that reconsiders our experiences of touch. Through a mixture of text discussion, movement, recordings and the creation of talking-movement scores this session aims to catalogue moments of ‘EPIC touch’ with bodies and indulge in their absence.
Humber Street Gallery and Absolutely Cultured wish to be transparent in our conscious efforts to invite individuals and communities who are currently underrepresented within the wider cultural sector.
To engage more effectively with diverse and representative audiences we are calling out to organisations and individuals rooted in the city to re-engage with those who have connected with us in different ways and those who have felt excluded.
This workshop is open to people who identify as women and non-binary people with any kind of movement experience, YES, BODIES is about how you choose to move and how you feel comfortable.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any accessibility requirements and we will support you in any way possible.
GUSH is a women-led and diverse interdisciplinary project developed by artist and producer Amy Lawrence. This solo and collective choreography workshop recycles and teases out movement methods used by Amy in the creation of her recent solo work ‘TUCH,’ a solo she shared at ‘Slade School of Fine Art’ (London,) and at ‘The Royal Exchange Theatre’ performed by Tilda O’Grady (Manchester, 2018) as part of her role as Supported Artist at the RET. This will be the third version of TUCH.
