Get ready to translate your psyche into physical movement!

Take part in a series of experimental movement and dance laboratories with artist Kai-Oi Jay Yung during the exhibition Portfolio NW this summer at the Bluecoat.

Whether you’re a supple yoga fanatic, ballet dancer or a stealthy self-trained parkour climber, come tap to your internal beat and engage your own expressive potential!

No experience is necessary to participate, just bring yourself and a willingness to work together with the artist and fellow Shadowers. We will be hosting a series of playful, self-exploratory activities that examine our inner impulses and their manifestation through physical movement.

Inspired by intersecting theories in theatre, psychoanalysis and dance, Jay invites you to join a series of workshop laboratories combining choreographed and openly improvised exercises and gestures. Together we will shape and create a new language for dance and movement by stimulating our imaginations and getting closer to our innermost desires, hopes and fears.

Diverse tasks and activity will employ props, the body and sound to explore such issues as emotion memory, observation, inner motive forces, why and how we move - through action, relaxation and collaborative movement.
