Workshop 1: Based on Temporary Title, 2015
Using material from Temporary Title, 2015, a live-action exhibition work created by Xavier Le Roy in collaboration with Scarlet Yu, this workshop explores notions of transformation and ways of moving that challenge our recognition of the human figure. Participants will look at the use of ‘landscapes’ to compose movement and choreography and different kinds of dialogue situations, and experiment with the agency of becoming object or subject.

22 January – 26 January 2018 (Monday – Friday) 10:00am–1:00pm, 2:00pm–5:00pm

Venue:
Rm. M9001, 9/F, Run Run Shaw Creative Media Centre, City University of Hong Kong
