Workshop: Trans-Form Dance
  • Peninsula Arts Gallery, University of Plymouth

Save event

Experience the magnitude and intricate detail of Trevor Bell's works first-hand, as you join Sarah Fairhall in a very special dance workshop held among his paintings in the gallery. You will be guided on a sensitive journey, experiencing the paintings directly through movement, absorbing light and colour and vibration as an enquiry leading towards improvisation. 

Sarah Fairhall is an experienced dance performer and teacher specialising in improvisational forms for performance. A Laban graduate, she lives in Cornwall and her recent engagements include Wildworks, Eden Project and Physical Postcards.

This workshop is after hours, so the gallery will be closed to the public and is aimed at anyone with some dance experience, or a love of movement improvisation. Age 16+

Time: 17:30-19:30

Trans-Form at Peninsula Arts

Trans-Form explores the work of British modernist artist, Trevor Bell, which across three decades of his career penetrated and captured the physical and the natural, in a profoundly simplistic way. 

Bell's own mantra to never look backwards fits neatly into this season's theme of 'transformations' and viewing his work is arguably a trans-formative experience in itself.
