10. All bodies speak: Workshop and presentation of the DanceAbility method

Unfortunately the workshop is already full!
We will begin with moving together working with the common denominator of the group. Allowing each movement equal expression the group develops a common movement language in which each person contributes to the whole. This directly facilitates inclusion of everyBODY.
In the presentation we will look at how the DanceAbility method originated and developed from the practice of inclusion. How does the practice influence us today when applied to artistic and social contexts?  How can technology be included in this practice? We will watch documentation of technology applied to the DanceAbility method to demonstrate how it supports the experience of movement and choice making for participants. The documentation will show the dance technology platform Isadora which was specifically developed for dance and has huge implications for integrated dance practices and performance.
