Coming up: Weave Theatre Masterclass with Janice Florence

Book now for this incredible Masterclass by renowned physical theatre practitioner and Weave Movement Theatre Artistic Director, Janice Florence. 

Proudly hosted by Women’s Circus, this Masterclass will introduce exercises and choreographic ideas flexible enough to include diverse bodies and minds. Improvisation and playfulness play a large role in Weave’s process of developing work and finding the strengths of each performer.

Weave Movement Theatre is an inclusive dance/physical theatre company comprising performers with a range of disability. Janice Florence is its founder and Artistic Director. For many of its 21 years Weave was the only disability led company in Australia.
 
Trained in experimental dance forms, Janice found herself evolving a new way of seeing and doing dance after acquiring a physical disability many years ago. In this workshop Janice will introduce exercises and choreographic ideas which are flexible enough to include diverse bodies and minds. Improvisation and playfulness play a large role in Weave’s process of developing work and finding the strengths of each performer.
 
Suitable for both experienced and emerging artists, this workshop will provide new tools and a deepening of your creative practice.
