Candoco Dance Company invites New York based choreographer, performer and teacher Jeanine Durning to lead a Dancer Development Day on 22 June at Roehampton University.

Join Candoco company dancers for this day of research with Jeanine, focusing on Being Doing, Doing Being.

The meaning of our effort is not always self-evident. This is a movement research class that accepts that the meaning of our effort is in the exercising of it. This daily movement practice draws on, borrows from and appropriates multiple sources and seemingly disparate forms to approach the nuanced ecologies of who we are and what we can imagine ourselves to be. Release techniques, developmental movement studies, Somatics, Ideokinesis, Contact, Kundalini, Qigong, shaking, tapping, turning, speaking, listening, and serious play are just some of the terrain we'll move through. We will bring all of who we are and what we can possibly bring to bear to be critical movers, radical problem-solvers, creative decision-makers, embodied philosophers, somatic inquirers, psycho-social experimentalists, time travelers, space invaders and perceptual gymnasts. Whether you come into the room to warm up or wake up, to shake up or settle in, to move or be moved, to hone attention or intention, we can come together to question, and challenge through practice, this form, that's still forming, called dance.

Suitable for experienced disabled and non-disabled dancers.
