This workshop introduces participants Contemplative Dance Practices of Barbara Dilley (www.barbaradilley.com).
**The solo performance HOME AS A JOURNEY (work in progress) will take place on Friday, 12th of October 2018, at Arianna’s Studio 67b Vassileos Pavlou, Corner Achilleos / Vasileos Pavlou, by the church of Ayia Varvara Kaimakli/1021 Nicosia
Bernadette began her research on home during her participation at the Eco Art Incubator Cyprus: Sites Embodied and EDN /Atelier Akamas: Nature Embodied, organized by Dance Gate Lefkosia and part of the Pafos2017 activities. Home as a direction is supported by contemplative dance practice, contact improv, landscape studies and cultural diversity ecologies. Now Bernadette invited by Arianna Economou is carrying on the dialogue that began up in Akamas under Denise Kenney and Nancy Holmes, as they are both working on Arianna’s project, ‘The Journey of Home”.
In the second part of the workshop Bernadette and Arianna shall be sharing their practice towards making upcoming solos and showing how contemplative dance practice has been applied in their research. Participants own engagement, influence and exchange will be welcome.
