The men's workshop is an introduction to contemporary dance by means of motion-based and choreographic exercises. The principal focus of the course is on discovering your own language of motion and developing your own, personal way of moving and presenting yourself. The two instructors of the course introduce different perspectives to contemporary dance and performing on stage.

The course is a self-contained introduction to the Liikkuva mies (‘Men in motion’) course that will be arranged later in the spring. It is suitable for both beginners and individuals with previous dance experience.

Instructors: Mikko Orpana (12 Feb - 5 Mar) and Jukka Tarvainen (12 Mar – 9 Apr)
