Where does the body become object and the object become body? Robbie Synge’s recent work attempts to explore this question and others within the context of our surroundings – urban or built up, green or grey…. This workshop is designed to open body and mind. Suitable for people with previous experience in contemporary dance and physical improvisation.
About the workshop
“My work is closely tied to two factors – the surrounding natural and built environment, and the choreography that exists within these landscapes. Within these parameters, where does the body become object and the object become body? What is the nature of our relationship with these elements and how do we physical interact with our surroundings?”
Engaging, discursive and dynamic, this unique workshop offers an opportunity for people to work with choreographer Robbie Synge and explore some of these themes through his particular improvisation and choreographic practices.
Guided by Robbie, the session will begin with an invigorating warm-up to focus the mind and body. The use of every-day objects and employment of specific physical tasks will encourage a fun and lively approach and perhaps, as Robbie states “we will surprise ourselves with unusual choreographic discoveries and the revelation of new meaning in our connection to simple objects and different environments”.
