Our participatory workshops are a key part of our vision. They are based around improvisation, creative writing and discussion. Being in collective creative processes is a treasured space for us and a unique opportunity to assist in making sense of ourselves. We have delivered workshops at Body and Soul, Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, Trinity Laban, Independent Dance, Dance Ireland, London School of Contemporary Dance, Siobhan Davies Dance, Tottenham Literature Festival amongst others.
Our workshops support participants to move and speak from their felt level experiences. The structures and methods that we put in place in the workshops support participants to be seen, heard and reflected back within the group environment. We draw upon the embodied and relational potentials of movement and dancing to facilitate this experience. Workshops are comprised of creative tasks and choreographic explorations.
Our workshops are taught by facilitators and dance movement psychotherapists with more than ten years of experience working with vulnerable groups.
Our experienced practitioners draw on dance’s capacity for non-verbal expression to foster community & relationship (to self & to one another)
Yewande’ is Alexandrina’s Yoruba middle name. It has been passed down the women in their family from their great-great-grandmother who ran away from slave traders in Nigeria. She hid, survived and lived until she was 103 years old. In Yoruba, Yewande means ‘mother has returned’.
