This Doing Day with Sheena McGrandles is part of our regular series inviting you to experience dance and choreography through actually ‘doing’ and engaging physically with artists and their process. Absolutely no experience necessary and we welcome participants of all abilities.
Berlin-based dancer and choreographer Sheena McGrandles hosts our latest Doing Day, PICTURE THIS. Informed by a 10-year drag practice, she will navigate participants through a series of studies that move between body- and image-based practices. The group will experiment with ways of seeing and being seen through photographic and choreographic arrangements of bodies, light, colour, costume, objects and make up. With a queer eye, the workshop will look at the complexity and ambivalence of images in our lives and the effects this has on our bodies.
The day will include the use of objects and materials. Please feel free to bring along your preferred items. This could include, but is not limited to, make-up, clothing, accessories and props.
This Doing Day will take place as part of Sheena McGrandles’ Open Choreography International residency at Siobhan Davies Dance. For more information on Sheena’s residency CLICK HERE.
