Space and Words for Dancers

This project began with a week of work led by Julyen Hamilton and Billie Hanne, in July 2015. Hosted by Chisenhale Dance Space and curated by Robert Vesty and Antonio de la Fe.
::
The week consisted of a 6-day workshop for 25 professional dancers, focusing on the use of space and words in performance.
::
Two solo performances: ‘Play’ by Hamilton and ‘Deep Brown Sea’ by Hanne.
::
An Evening Talk with Hamilton & Hanne talking in-depth about their work and the making of poetry and dance.
::
A final Discussion Day which revolved around the question of ‘What skills are required of the dancer and poet to produce poetry and dance in performance?’
