Moving Bodies Workshop
  • Plymouth University

Save event

Led by experienced choreographer and creative producer, Lois Taylor, this workshop will help you to explore your own physicality when telling a story. You will not be asked to dance – unless you want to of course, instead we will look at how we use space, gestures, body positions, placing and characterisation when storytelling.

Saturday 7 May, 10:30-12:00
Plymouth University

Tickets are available to reserve and purchase online in advance. Please note advanced booking closes at 23:59 on Friday 5 May. Alternatively, tickets are available on the door on a first-come-first-served basis.

Their annual Gathering welcomes professional, emerging and aspiring storytellers from across the UK for a weekend of storytelling, workshops, performances and more. The 2017 Gathering is taking place in Plymouth as part of the Plymouth Festival of Words.
