A composition workshop focusing on what happens when ideas and techniques which come primarily from music are translated into movement.
The sessions will consist of short task-based exercises, often using extreme reduction of possibilities to stimulate the imagination. Questions about how to find material, how to keep something going, what makes a strong or a weak change and other compositional ‘problems’ will be discussed.
