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.

Book tour with H Patten and Namron

We presented a panel discussion at IABD in Ohio USA about the book Narratives in Black British Dance: Dr. Adesola Akinleye, H Patten and Namron with moderation from Mercy Nabirye and support from One Dance UK and Middlesex University.

H and Adesola were then on a panel about internationalism with Thomas Talawa Presto and Robert Soloman. Adesola was also on a panel about dance writing (Black Dance Magazine) moderated by Norma Porter.

Following that H and Adesola gave guest lectures at University of Michigan, MI and Adesola also held a guest lecture at the Boston Conservatory, MA. A lot of fun and driving in the snow!!











Dance tour for Early Years Audiences

We are busy in rehearsal for our up-coming tour of dance and music performance work:
'Light Steps' for young audiences 2 to 5+ years and their families.
'Found' for young audiences  4 to 7+ years and their families.
Both performance works have been co-created with young people. Light Steps was inspired by the Turner Contemporary, Margate Summer of Colour exhibit of work by Spencer Finch in 2014. We worked with the Reception classes of a local primary school to research and develop what has now become the performance work 'Light Steps'.

'Found' developed from a larger project working with three Museums and three schools in 2016. This larger project was called the ILA project we again worked with the young people to co-create the story and elements of the final performance work 'Found'. You can see the steps of the making of Found at www.ilaproject.com

We are now in rehearsal getting the artistic team ready for an exciting tour later this year.
