Joe Moran (UK) workshop in Tallinn 4.-9.11.2019


We invite You to TantsuRUUM

Morning research classes:
Monday to Friday at 9:30-11:30

Afternoon performance workshops:
Monday to Friday at 12:30-15:30
Saturday at 12:30-16:00

British-Irish choreographer Joe Moran leads a week of morning research classes exploring how perceptual practice – what we apprehend or how we use our attention while we are dancing – may be utilised as a generative, choreographic practice. With a central focus on the surrender of intention and choice-making, sessions will bring together moving with perceptual and conceptual practices that complicate or problematise our subjectivities, or our habit of being ourselves, whilst opening space for witnessing and questioning how we are always already choreographed (by our history, education, culture, context), or our choreographed self. We will explore how such notions can inform or disrupt aesthetic concerns and modes of production.

Afternoon sessions offer an opportunity for a smaller group of dancers to take the morning research into performance practice leading up to an informal public performance. Drawing upon the structure and inquiry of Moran’s recent stage work On The Habit of Being Oneself, the afternoon workshops will focus upon achieving a freedom of physical and perceptual vitality in performance. The workshops will also see Moran develop new aspects of the work including text and spoken word.

On The Habit of Being Oneself (2018) premiered at Sadler’s Wells in London and further performances at The Lowry (Manchester), Bluecoat (Liverpool), Delfina Foundation (London) and The Place (London).

Performance workshop will conclude with a public sharing based on Joe Moran’s creation “On The Habit of Being Oneself” on Saturday afternoon at 2pm.
