Led by dance artist Yvonne Ng and her team of professional artists, participants will be led through fun, playful and gentle movement warm-ups, as an introduction to the creative process. Movement and theatre arts will be explored through improvisation and gentle dance exercises, music, storytelling, writing and group discussion to build an original multidisciplinary piece inspired by your stories and life experiences.
In a friendly, informal environment, participants will work directly with dancers, musicians and theatre artists taking part in a collaborative art making process through creative play and the sharing of ideas. In this supportive atmosphere, every individual’s strengths are celebrated, all contributions are welcomed and all ideas valued.
Offering a window into the world of art-making, Moving Stories is an opportunity for self-expression, sharing and most importantly, a chance to have fun. This program promises to be a positive and memorable experience for all.
