A WORKSHOP WITH BLOCK UNIVERSE ARTIST MARIA HASSABI IN COLLABORATION WITH SIOBHAN DAVIES DANCE

About

London’s leading International Performance Festival, Block Universe, and Siobhan Davies Dance invite you to a two-hour long workshop with acclaimed choreographer and artist Maria Hassabi (b. 1973, Cyprus, lives in NY). Over the years Hassabi has developed a distinct practice that utilizes slowness and stillness, as techniques in choreographies that oscillate between dance and sculpture, subject and object, live body and still image. Most recently, she presented her works at K20, Düsseldorf, and Documenta 14, Kassel, where dancers morphed their bodies at slow, sometimes imperceptible velocities, enacting choreographic cycles that looped throughout the museum’s opening hours, creating a recurrent form that occupied a specific space and seemingly unbroken time.

As a response to this year's festival theme, which addresses the ways that we relate to one another and examines personal relationships, Maria Hassabi will take her own practice as a starting point and will explore  everyday movements that can be used to stimulate creativity. Much of the emphasis will lie on breathing, weight, muscular strength and the sound of the body, with the aim of making us more deeply aware of the body.

This workshop is open to all, no prior movement experience required.‬‬

 Booking is required.
