Two amazing days of dance workshops this weekend. Led by the lovely Gaelin Little, in Happisburgh village hall, and along the cliff path by the lighthouse. Gorgeous sunshine today, but a brisk wind on both days, cold from the sea, has blown away some of the dust and cobwebs. Gaelin has been given funding to create a dance project based on the lighthouse at Happisburgh and the surrounding landscape. We have been exploring notions of gesture and place, using movement that has stemmed from authentic movement improvisations made on the cliff path yesterday and using phrases and words and games to create links and an easy cohesion between two people and then small groups. Words that came from the group as a whole at the end of this weekend are nourishing, air, grateful, sustaining.
