The Licking Things workshop looks for fulfilment through music and movement. The aim of the course is to explore the relationship between music and movement through motion-based exercises performed alone and in a group. Motion is used to seek a profound, comprehensive sense of presence and perception.

The instructors of the workshop are choreographer Sari Palmgren and musician/composers Mikko Perkola and Tuomas Norvio. The course includes movement-based activities performed to live music and an introduction to choreography and performance production. The course proceeds in step with the preparation of Sari Palmgren's upcoming performance Licking Things (premiere 9 November). Students participate in the preparations of the performance, and are allowed to watch the rehearsals.
