    Moving and Experiencing

    Moving and Experiencing

    Somatics in theory and practice

    Sat, 9th Nov, 2013 | University of Chichester | Cost: £55 waged, £35 unwaged

    This day of talks, workshops and performances promises to be the start of something exciting. Our aim is to bring together a range of professionals working in the field of somatic practices and arts-making in a series of research events to deepen our knowledge and practice, enabling new connections and possibilities. In this first event, we will run a series of taster workshops, show new dance performance research and offer a keynote talk on the mystical in somatic practices. Each workshop will be an introduction to a particular way of a working and we encourage participation in all the workshops in order to facilitate a deep and embodied awareness of the connections embedded in these practices. This embodied knowledge will then fuel our discussions about similarities, possible links, and differences. We hope this way of sharing our practices will give rise to deeper understandings amongst the respective practices as well as providing a meaningful experience for those considering a career in somatic practices.

    This group of practitioners has been selected to make an initial offering to a further enquiry into the depth and breadth of dance and somatic practices both in and beyond Higher Education. We hope to run a series of these events and so if you are interested in offering a workshop for a a future event please contact j.bacon@chi.ac.uk

    Caroline Horton & Company

    Caroline Horton & Company, Mess


    Thu 5 Dec 7.30pm Full £10 | Conc £6 | Age 14+

    China Plate presents Caroline Horton & Company – Mess

    Josephine is putting on a play – Boris and Sistahl help. It’s about anorexia. But don’t let that put you off. Unflinchingly they confront big issues (and extremely tiny ones). Today they will tackle a particularly thin elephant in the room. Obsession, addiction and not wanting to get out of bed: a play with songs from 2013 Olivier Award nominated Caroline Horton (You’re Not Like Other Girls Chrissy).

    Winner: Stage Award for Best Ensemble 2012.

    “Comes perilously close to genius and announces Horton as a major major talent”
    Time Out.
