Weave Movement Theatre, a dance/physical theatre company of performers with a disability, invites other performers with a disability to participate in professional development workshops led by high calibre artists at Dancehouse in 2017.
There are many barriers to artists with a disability attending mainstream classes and tertiary courses in the performing arts. The Weave Movement workshops will provide an avenue for these performers to study and experiment in a fully accessible studio space.
Lead artists will include Tess De Quincy from BodyWeather and Sarah Fiddaman from Dirty Feet.
Weave has a history of collaborating with respected guest artists with and without a disability, providing intensive interactions between artists across a range of styles. These workshops at Dancehouse will serve as choreographic labs from which new ideas will arise and new collaborations will be born.
