Body Dialogues Workshop: Stimming As Sensory Play
Sat 16 October 2021
Body Dialogues Workshop
Please wear comfortable clothing, have a pen and paper to draw/write with, and a bottle of water to hand.
This workshop is an invitation to drop into sensation and move in a way that brings us joy. It is an invitation to dance, to stim and to follow the threads of attention that weave between our inner rhythms and those of our sensory environments.
Susanna will create a Relaxed zoom workshop space, inviting you to do what you need to do to get the most out of your experience, whether that be turning your camera off, taking breaks when you need them, or turning your disco lights on!
This workshop is an opening up of the neurodivergent guided dance practice that Susanna has discovered through STIMMING R&D, a collaboration with Aby Watson, Danni Spooner and Manon Ouimet.
NEUROSTAGES is a Relaxed Festival. This means that it takes the approach of Relaxed Performance across all festival activity, both in-person and online.
Relaxed Performances were created to make watching performance more accessible by ‘relaxing’ the usual rules of theatre etiquette – they allow for noise and movement from the audience, as well as tailoring light and sound for those with sensory sensitivities.
All live events will be wheelchair accessible.
All online events will be captioned.
BSL for live and online events to be confirmed.
There will be an option of high sensory or low sensory dedicated chillout spaces at CCA.
An easy to read festival guide, audio introduction, visual guide and printable programme for the CCA will also be made available.
