NLmoves presents: INSIDE OUT A contemporary movement workshop with Robyn Breen
Open to mature teens and adults with a dedicated artistic and/or movement practise.
Using moving meditations and developed phrase work, we will rummage through our bodies’ desires, curiosities and habits. We will dance slow and fast, big and small, improvised and choreographed, with added attention to the in-betweens.
Robyn has been exploring movement for over 25 years. In the past year she has explored new ways of moving with inspiring teachers such Faizal Ddamba (Uganda), Angela Schubot (Germany), and Justine Chambers (Vancouver). She is a graduate of The School of Toronto Dance Theatre’s Professional Training Program and holds a BFA (Honours) in Dance from York University. Her own work has been presented in festivals such as PS: we are all here (TO Love-In) and SummerWorks Performance Festival, and as a performer she has worked with esteemed choreographers such as Patricia Beatty and Jo Leslie. Robyn is currently a part of the NL Dance Project with Neighbourhood Dance Works.
December 20th, 7-9 pm at the Dance Space in the St.John’s Arts and Culture Centre. $10 or $5 for members. Contact Robyn Breen to register email@example.com
