Following our spring series the Autumn Makers’ LABs will run once a month on Sundays October 22nd Marguerite Galizia November 26th Jenny Hill and Dec 17th TBC

The Makers’ LAB will be led by an artist/company who is or has been researching and making new work at Clarence Mews. They will lead an investigation, which relates to their distinctive practice. The LAB will be both reflective and risk-taking, and are for those who are interested in the process of making new work. However you don’t have to be making new work now to come along.

The next Maker’s LAB will take place on:

Sunday 22nd October with Marguerite Galizia

How we make is as important as what we make.
Following her last Maker’s LAB, Marguerite is returning to lead another session.
Come and participate in makers’ LAB 05; this LAB will continue to address how to develop solo material, how to fully explore the potentials of an idea when working alone, and how to draw on the presence of other artists to support this process.
Participants will spend half the session being observed and the other half observing. This model presents a chance to develop a short study, whilst supported by another person being present to your process, as a witness rather than a judge or facilitator.

Suitable for dance artists facilitators or dramaturgs, as well as anyone making movement-based work.
