@Disturbance: Neuroqueer Dance Workshop
24 October 22 @ 18:30 - 20:305£ – 10£
Get involved in the @Disturbance program for a dance workshop aimed at neurodivergent queer people.
Facilitated by movement artist, researcher and facilitator Susanna Dye (they/them, she/her) who works between the fields of theatre, dance and film, exploring how movement and the body are encountered both live, and digitally.
Being dyspraxic and dyslexic, Susanna is developing a practice that is built on movement as a field for individuality and play, making work through exploring the creative potential of neurodivergence and difference.
In this two hour session, we will open up space to share experiences of neurodiversity, and think about dance in relationship to stimming. We will explore the parallels between ‘regulated movement’ and ‘unregulated movement’ as a way to reclaim bodily autonomy and empower neurodivergent experiences.
In this workshop, participants will:
● Embody experiences of neurodivergence through movement, play, and
● Explore the relationship between dance and stimming
● Connect with peers and build community
● Leave the session with new skills to continue their journey afterwards
This session is designed for people who identify as both neurodivergent and queer. We understand neurodivergence is a wide spectrum, and we welcome potential participants to share with us any accessibility
the workshop price is 10£ for 2 hours but if you can’t afford it and want to participate please get in touch.
To register your interest, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the title ‘Dance Workshop’ by 21st October 2022
Susanna (they/them, she/her) works between the fields of theatre, dance and film, exploring how movement and the body are encountered both live, and digitally.
Being dyspraxic and dyslexic, Susanna has overcome the access barriers they experience to choreographic practice by making work that explores the creative potential of sensory, non-verbal and emergent ways of being.
Since completing a Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in MOVEMENT: DIRECTING AND TEACHING at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, they have developed their professional experience as a facilitator with organisations such as Candoco Dance Company, Bush Theatre, Access all Areas and Turtle Key Arts.
Curious about developing an approach to dance that is guided by the senses, Susanna is exploring habitual movement patterns and how the body self regulates through movement. This research has been awarded funding by Arts Council England, and is supported through residencies at The Place, Wellcome Collection and Siobhan Davies Studios.
