In the Invitation to Attend Workshop, Claire will share methods and scores central to her work, opening up dialogues about where her choreographic practice based on attending/attention and perception, and practices learned from normative-bodied artists, meets with concepts of Crip politics – such as Crip time – and the phenomenology/lived experience of disability.
Through talking, moving, watching, listening and documenting in a manner accessible to each participant, you will engage in tasks looking at: attending to our own attention; the connection between movement and language; communication and consent; and the potential within these scores in gaining ownership (or re-ownership) over our bodies and for new modes of noticing, moving and improvising.
This workshop is open to people of diverse physicalities and sensory modalities. The work will use structured improvisation and allows everyone to engage at their own chosen levels of energy, pace and scale of movement.
Workshops ususally last around 4-6hr and have a capacity of between 10-14 people.
