Anna will be teaching a masterclass ‘Working with Windows’ at Dancehouse in Melbourne as part of Asia TOPA Festival. Further details HERE.
This workshop is suitable for people who would like to approach dance from an internal, minimal perspective.
You will be invited to explore the choreographic concept of Murasaki Penguin’s current work ‘Window‘. Trace views through windows etched in your mind from the past. See the architecture you are surrounded by at this moment. Leading with your eyes, ‘seeing’ then slowly drawing space increases awareness of micro changes in body and space.

Date: Thursday, 2 March 10am-2pm
Cost:  $40 Full | $25 Dancehouse member
