June 7th Hybrid Practices @Urban Room - University of Reading

https://woodforgood.com/index/woodfest-reading/urban-room-hybrid-practices

12–2pm Dialogue I: Movement-Lab
What is the relationship between choreographic movement and architectural design? What if we designed a building on the basis of a dance score? How do you experience space around you on a daily basis? Led by choreographer Adesola Akinleye and movement directorStruan Leslie, this interactive workshop will invite us to use movement and choreography to explore our relationship with spatial architectures in action.

2:30–4:30pm Dialogue II: Inter-disciplinary Lab
What happens when we use different practices to explore one set of questions? How can we change habits of interacting and of thinking? Thinking through practices of movement, design, and theory we will consider different and interlocking approaches to the spaces around us and how we inhabit them.
A hands-on dialogue with conversations from guest speakers: Erect Architecture, Invisible Studio, Susanna Clausen (Reading International), Adesola Akinleye and Struan Leslie.
