Embodied Presence | Steve Batts Workshop, Belfast

30, 31 January and 1 February, 11am to 4.30pm

This Workshop will use the three day to deepen the experience of embodied attention and to sustain a heightened level of this attention to the process of real-time composition. Steve Batts will introduce a few key ideas from his own work which he usually refers to as Poetic Movement. Among others these will be:

• Three fundamentals: Real Presence/Real Time/Real Space
• Action-Reaction-Interaction
• Directive and Adaptive phases of movement
• “What is a watcher (audience of colleague) looking for?”
• Phrasing

The intention will be to develop a more profound sensitivity to the dual aspects of making sense and experiencing mystery in compositional processes. We will begin the work with our main attention on movement but I hope to be able to explore voice, object and text as well.

Please wear something simple and comfortable as a starting point but bring any costumes, objects, texts, materials, instruments etc that you have a current taste for.

Location: Southbank Playhouse Theatre, 1a Kimberly Drive, off Sunnyside St, Belfast BT
Cost: £60 includes lunch
