Drawing on somatic dance practices including contact improvisation, Skinner Releasing Technique and Peake’s own art and dance background, the workshop delves into the creative potential of movement. Incorporating writing, drawing, voice and movement this exploratory and playful afternoon is open to all. No prior dance or art experience required.
This workshop is back by popular demand and places are limited but there will be further opportunity to participate in Florence Peake’s workshop series in April (9, 16, 23, 30).
“I am very happy to have discovered a whole world of movement I knew nothing about and hope to explore in much more detail, thanks!”
- Florence Peake: Movement Workshop participant 2015
Florence Peake is a London-based artist and choreographer. With extensive training in dance and a background in painting, her performance practice combines a variety of media—from drawing to sculpture—in relationship to the moving body. Site and audience, live and recorded text, wit and humour are key to her work.
Her interdisciplinary projects, made both independently and collaboratively, have been exhibited and performed nationally and internationally since 1995 in New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Prague, Sweden and Latvia. Peake’s work has also been commissioned and shown at prestigious venues such as the National Portrait Gallery (2008), National Review of Live Art (2009), Yorkshire Sculpture Park (2012), Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art (2013) and Hayward Gallery (2014).
