Compass Commission Taster Workshop

Fri 19 January 2018

On 1 February, the Greenwich Dance & Trinity Laban Partnership is offering people the opportunity to experience and contribute to an important new dance commission.

Robert Clark’s brand new immersive project MASS will receive its world premiere at Greenwich Dance in March. Clark has worked with psychologists, neuroscientists, and even an illusionist to develop a performance event that explores the deep unspoken connections between ourselves and others. Illusionist and Research Consultant on MASS, Jamie Harrison comments – “Robert Clark’s vision for Mass is fascinating.”

Ahead of the world premiere, Clark is running a Taster Workshop for participants to explore his ongoing research and take part in the work’s development.

Comprising conversation and interactive exercises, the workshop is open to those from all backgrounds aged 18 or over who have some physical/movement experience. This is an exciting opportunity to see the creative process of an emerging choreographer whose creative ideas have been generated from scientific findings. It promises to be “an illuminating and immersive experience that will make you think.”

The workshop takes place on Thursday 1 February, from 2pm to 5pm at Greenwich Dance. To find out more and register interest, please email Lydia Wharf at

Choreographer Robert Clark is one of two dance artists supported by the current round of Compass Commissions – The Greenwich Dance & Trinity Laban Partnership flagship artist development scheme, supporting selected UK-based artists throughout the process of creation.
