The Subtle Body is a workshop that will tread across many boundaries and amalgamate many different forms and techniques, including Chi Gung, contemporary dance, floor work, yoga and theatre. We will attempt to bridge the gap between these disciplines to plunder them for their usefulness with a desire to work ‘energetically’ in performance and with an awareness of our ‘subtle body’.

I am looking forward to this year’s Corner Dance Lab with great anticipation. It has become one of the markers in my calendar that the year has begun and what better way to kick off another year of dance making? This year’s Corner looks set to expand upon the philosophy of communication and creativity that has been laid down over the past two years. It is a fertile place for the mind to take a step out of the ordinary and onto a unique sharing and creative space where inspiration lurks in every corner and every body. Let’s give 2016 a huge kick off party! Gavin Webber
