A three part workshop series where we will collaboratively create a dance piece as part of Leeds City Museum's bicentenary celebrations.
We would love you to join us for our 3-week creative movement workshop series over the 3rd October, 10th October (both 11.15am-12.45pm) and a performance throughout the day on 17th October. No dance experience required.
Over the first two Sundays we will have fun creating a piece of movement together on the theme of shifting power which will be performed as part of the Leeds City Museum’s 200th Anniversary celebrations on the third Sunday. This workshop is for those who want to discover more about creating movement through introductory sessions on improvisation.
We will build this piece from scratch together looking at how we can interact with each other and an audience.
Sunday 3rd October 11.15 am-12.45pm - During the first workshop we will gather and have an exploration/ introduction of how we can move creatively and respond to our surroundings and the people within the space.
Sunday 10th October 11.15 am-12.45pm - In the second workshop we will build on what we created the week previously, add additional layers and prepare for our performance.
Sunday 17th October – Performance of ‘Manufactured’. 11am- 4.30pm. We will have fun performing our piece and interacting with the audience throughout the day as part of the wider ‘Manufactured’ installations and performances throughout the museum.
About me: my name is Imogen McBeath and I, in collaboration with Leeds Methodist Mission, am creating work throughout Leeds City Museum for the Bicentenary celebrations. I am interested in in creating work that discusses themes of power, community, compliance and the intricacies of human/ social behaviour. ‘Manufactured’ is inspired by a collection of interviews around different perspectives on who has power from people who live in Leeds.
About LMM: Leeds Methodist Mission is a city centre project focusing on reflection, wellbeing, activism and creativity.
We hope you can join us. If you have any questions, please email me at email@example.com
