Moving Music

18.NOVEMBER.2017 • 10:30 - 17:00

Wales Millennium Centre
Bute Place
Cardiff, CF10 5AL

Part of Reboot, our artist development programme.
This workshop is included in the Cardiff Dance Festival 2017 programme.

For over 20 years, Suzy Willson and Paul Clark – Artistic Directors of CLOD ENSEMBLE – have collaborated to create a unique body of performance work which blends original music and movement.

In this day-long workshop, Suzy and Paul will share some of the principles that underpin their work and some exercises which explore the relationship between movement and music. In theatre, dance, opera and film music is used in myriad ways – to heighten intensity, to emotionally manipulate, as wallpaper, or to be the structure of the piece.  

In this session, which features music by Bach, Carl Stalling, Miles Davis, Purcell, Ray Charles, Stravinsky and music from some of CLOD ENSEMBLE’s recent shows, we explore how what we see is fundamentally affected by what we hear.

Moving Music is free to attend but places are limited. If you are interested in taking part, please send your CV and an expression of interest to by Monday 13 November, 10am.
