Three day Movement and Dance workshop across Morecambe Bay and the River Lune Estuary with Jennifer Monson (Birdbrain Dance/iLAND, USA)
1, 2, 3 May 2007
WORKSHOP at Ludus Dance Centre and out on location across Morecambe Bay and the River Lune Estuary.
4 May 2007
SYMPOSIUM at Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts (LICA), Lancaster University
The award-winning environmental movement artist Jennifer Monson will lead a three-day workshop in collaboration with Nigel Stewart (LICA/Sap Dance, UK) and with the help of cross-bay guide Alan Sledmore. The workshop is aimed for dance artists and other professional artists, but should be accessible to other interested persons.
The workshop is part of the research and development phrase of Water Log, a transatlantic project exploring the mirror relation between particular places in Morecambe Bay, UK, and the Hudson River Estuary, USA, that are situated ambiguously in-between water and dry land, the human and other-than-human.
Exploring an industrial estate and marsh land along the Lancaster Coastal Path, and Public Rights of Way across Morecambe Bay sands, Water Log asks: how can the dynamic eco-systems of zones in-between land and sea suggest specific strategies for dance improvisation; how can those improvisations enable participants to experience even the most ephemeral eco-phenomena (e.g., patterns of washed-up debris, evaporating footprints); and how can that experience re-enchant our relationship with nature and contest the notion of landscape as merely a unit of human occupation?
Water Log is part of LICA’s Re-enchantment & Reclamation project, funded by the workshops and networks scheme of the Landscape and Environment Programme of the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
Cost for participants outside of Lancaster University (heavily subsidised by the AHRC): £25
Places: strictly limited to 15. Priority will be given to regional dance artists and other professional artists.
N.B. Participants are responsible for their own accommodation.
Contact: Nigel Stewart at: email@example.com to reserve your place.
