Icon Dance company is working with Museums across the country to create professional dance which responds to how people experience their collections and spaces.
Join us at Manchester Museum to become part of the research process, working alongside professional dance artists and educators as we explore museum spaces and re-imagine collection objects.
The findings from this project will shape a major tour of dance for museums in 2016/17 and this is your chance to be part of it!
As a participant you will:
* Explore Manchester Museum’s objects and spaces with Icon’s Creative Learning team in fun, creative ways*Work directly with Icon’s artistic team, including Creative Director Martin Joyce and Assistant Choreographer
- Provide inspiration and stimuli for professional choreography which will be created and performed in situ in the museum on the same day by Icon’s dancers
No dance experience or knowledge of the museum collection is necessary – you will be guided through the workshop by specialists. Participants should wear loose, comfortable clothing on the day, but you will not need to dance unless you wish to.
