Workshop To Generate Dance Content For Children

Choreographer Teresa Rotemberg proposes a four-day laboratory for Cuban artists. We will visit a group of children, investigate their interests and concerns in order to bring this content to the research session. We will work among the artists, using the body and different materials.


We will generate short scenes that we will present to the group of children we visited, and to the general audience.


This workshop is designed for professional contemporary dancers, dance students, well-trained actors, physical theatre and acrobatic artists.


This programme is very limited in capacity - by booking a ticket please make sure you can commit to all 4 sessions. By reserving a ticket to the first session (28 May), you will be registering for the whole programme (28 May, 29 May, 31 May).
