Using theft, mimicry, adaptation and guile we will look at different performance and learning methods taken from theatre, dance, gymnastics, visual arts and anywhere else we choose to enhance circus devising processes. This workshop will involve improvisation and will be physical from the outset. Prepare to work fast and surprise yourself.
Mish Weaver has been working with the language of circus for 22 years as an aerialist, designer, choreographer, teacher and director. Fronting Stumble (danceCircus) Mish plays with the genre that seems appropriate at any given moment.
