Dates and times

4 Jun 2021 - 4 Jul 2021

Online Event

part of Yorkshire Dance's Climate Encounters festival

This remote audio guided workshop invites you on an outdoor immersive, physical and poetic journey with a tree and with branching worlds. Downloadable audio tracks, visual and written guidance will guide you to move, connect and explore with a tree, in a park, woodland or garden of your choice. Beginning indoors with a video to tune into different species of branching that are present in ourselves and in natural environments;  four audio tracks will then guide you on a walk to meet and move with a tree; ending with a short response and reflection once back home. You can experience the work individually or with a few people at anytime whilst it is available online.

The workshop is part of Vanessa Grasse’s The Land We Are project, which offers a movement practice of reviving our sense of connectivity and care for trees, the land and natural ecosystems. Via workshops, remote scores, choreographic work and collaborations with environmental experts, it investigates ways to offer embodied experiences of ecology and relationality that can re-invigorate our connection with the more-than-human world.

This workshop will be available anytime to access from the 4th of June (9am) – 4th July (9am). Book your place now to be sent the visual and audio tracks from the 4th of June onwards.

On Sunday 4th of July at 11am there will be an additional Zoom session with Vanessa Grasse, reflecting on the audio workshops. Find out more and book your place here.
