Who? For professional dancers, recent graduates & dancers in undergraduate training

Join Kay Crook, Chhaya Collective, for a sweaty, energetic and empowering workshop of collaborative movement exploration, technical training, floor drills, choreography and repertoire from Chhaya's current touring production KHAOS.

“Not neat, nor calm, nor perfect, but vibrant, chaotic and powerful – we are wild 21st century women”. KHAOS celebrates what it is to be woman, drawing on ancient stories and oppressive archetypes, rejecting order in favour of complexity and chaos. 

The workshop will draw on core themes of the work and feed choreographic explorations, movement generation and creative discussions. Open to all those ready to unleash their inner wild and expressive selves, of any gender. 

Chhaya Collective are a contemporary dance company, set up between UK and India since 2014, invested in developing sustainable relationships between artists in UK and globally, through cross-cultural, collaborative and interdisciplinary projects.

A technical and creative day focussing on solo studies and our personal connection to everyday sound. The workshop will combine taught dynamic set phrases, improvisational enquires and responding solo tasks all rooted in quality of movement and our relationship to space. Be prepared to sweat, to work deeply and be inspired by text, sound, music and each other.

This workshop forms part of Emily’s ongoing physical research as dancer and choreographer through her Immersive Imaginations workshop series. This workshop is an extension of her current project In My Head, about everyday sound and hearing loss funded by Arts Council England, supported by Hall for Cornwall and AMATA.
