Event Description

All The Things That We Can Do is an invitation to an attempt at an exploration. Six art/ life events for artists, philosophers and other citizens, using choreographic strategies to engage with politics and citizenship through the body.

Each week we will work as a group with an idea that relates in some way to bodies, to choreography and to politics. We will use the idea as a starting point for exchange, exploration and creation; through movement, speech and writing scores. What this becomes is necessarily uncertain and can only be understood through the collective doing. Whatever we do will be ok.

Although attendance at all events is neither compulsory nor necessary, there will be progression through the events as we attempt to build a collective practice and memory. The final event will only be for people who have taken part at least one previous one.

21 June, Shoreditch Town Hall. £10*
28/29 June, Chisenhale Dance Space. £10*
5 & 6 July, Shoreditch Town Hall. £18*
12 July, University of Roehampton. £10*
