Unmissable workshop opportunity for dance artists
A twilight workshop with award-winning choreographer and contemporary dancer Rosie Kay. Dance Artists are invited to attend what is set to set to be a fascinating insight into Rosie’s work.
“As a choreographer I am always challenging myself- working across a range of subject matters that brings me from dance into the lives of soldiers, into the academic corridors of University of Oxford, or recently researching with inner city teenagers in Birmingham, Wolverhampton and Derby. Making works that no one else has seen before, and on topics that are relevant, important and political really excites me.” Rosie Kay
