In collaboration with Arts Gateway MK, MÓTUS is welcoming back Stuart Waters to lead a Gaga inspired workshop as part of the MK Arts Week Day For Dance.
The workshop will use the movement dance language of Gaga as a spring board to develop improvisations of self awareness through the body. This will build the mover’s stamina, agility and strength whilst waking the senses and the imagination. Beginning as a solo exploration, Stuart will then encourage the potential to connect to others as the workshop progresses. A range of qualities will be used to motivate the body and make connections internally and externally. The workshop will be a journey of surprises for the body, the mind and the space.
Come and have fun for this session and enjoy moving.
