12:00 – 15:00 HOWEVER dance workshop,
facilitator: Justyna Wielgus, Warsaw
Abotu the workshop: However dance contains gestures, the knowledge of dance consists in the capability to step away from gesture.In dance, you have to be able to make your own body the main object of attention. It boils down to evoking an impression, that you are not deliberately creating any specific figures or specific style.
It is like the bird hovering upon the wind. And this is what dance is about.

About programe: A physical theatre piece, devised and performed by a young woman who is learning disabled and has overcome a great deal of prejudice and oppression in her short life. Nikki has endured disability-related bullying since primary school and, in the past, has resorted to substance abuse to blot out the pain. Her family has suffered homelessness and eviction following sectarian attack and Nikki has developed health problems from prolonged glue-sniffing and a congenital spinal deformity. Nikki is able to tell her story because she has become a proficient physical theatre performer during a 5-year association with KIC. She is about to complete her KIC apprenticeship, making her eligible for paid employment as a KIC Workshop Assistant, and will play a leading role in the formation of a KIC adult disability project that will be developed over the next few years into an independent company.
