May 11th 2022, 19:00: Isadora Duncan Dance Research Centre, Athens, Greece
In this workshop we learn the Water Molecule Dance and make wishes for water. The Water Molecule Dance is a community dance choreographed by Medie Megas for our short film One Day We Will Dance with You. It celebrates the life and science of water, from the movements of the Hydrogen and Oxygen atoms in the water molecule to the way water flows up through the stem of a plant and is released back out into the air.
This workshop is offered with the Isadora Duncan Dance Research Centre, for 10-12 year olds plus family. Facilitated by Kate Adams and Medie Megas. For more information please get in contact.
The dynamics of water: exploring through improvisation
May 11th 2022, 20:00: Isadora Duncan Dance Research Centre, Athens, Greece
Choreographer Medie Megas and performance maker Kate Adams will share improvisational forms and creative tasks which they used in the making of Water is Attracted to Water. Using our bodies and imagination to explore the dynamics and behaviours of water, we will celebrate our experiences and connection to the watery world.
This workshop is offered with the Isadora Duncan Dance Research Centre, for teenagers and young adults. For more information please get in contact.
