Join us for this exciting week-long intensive exploring how movement works.

"This course will reveal things that people working in the performing arts should know, but often don’t!” (Rosemary Brandt)

Course Outline

So what is movement anyway? Discover the answers during this week-long choreology intensive.

The course is suitable for practitioners from different backgrounds and disciplines, interested in movement, choreography, acting, performance, and directing or teaching. It will significantly change and improve your creative practice.

Join us on the journey to reveal fascinating insights about what we look at when we watch performance and how expression is controlled, created and communicated.

The week will include

  • An introduction to innovative and exciting choreological practice
  • Creating, performing and observing movement
  • Discussion and dialogue
  • An exploration of current developments of Rudolf Laban’s movement theories and their specific application to contemporary performing arts disciplines

No previous experience of movement analysis theories is required.

"Fascinating, absorbing and exciting. The choreological understanding will change your professional practice significantly”
