Workshop: Writing on, in, and through Dance

Claudia La Rocco (USA)

Workshop: Writing on, in, and through Dance

This is a writing workshop open to those who want to play with words, to see what words can do, and to understand how words do what they do. Open to dance critics, reviewers, arts writers, journalists and dance practitioners interested in writing on dance, the workshop explores how words live in time and space – whether on the stage, the page or in the mind.

Critical writing, creative writing, performance texts… are they really such different creatures? Does a dancer have a particular way of approaching language? What about a writer who spends much of their time watching and (writing about) dance? These are just some of the questions you’ll explore.

Facilitated by: Dancehouse
