A course for queer and non-binary people
This course explores the connection queerness can enable through shared movement practice. We will ask: what is (your) queerness? who do you move (queerly)? and explore permutations of these questions as they leak into auto-choreographic potential. This course is structured in three sections, two over zoom and one in your own time. Footage collected from the module will be developed into a filmic documentation exploring what is queer dance and how do we queer it. Participants are not required to have their material included.
Participants should attend all three sessions.
Session 1: Thursday 8th April, 4-5.30pm
Session 2: Thursday 15th April, 4-5.30pm
Session 3: Thursday 22nd April, 4-5.30pm
