Over the years it has changed of course, and nowadays there are types of Morris that is performed by wheelchair participants, by children, and by everyone else. The workshop will give a very short introduction to the history of the style, and then a chance to practice two styles of dance: first with handkerchiefs and then with sticks, or in this workshop just a rolled-up newspaper. The emphasis is on rhythm and interaction.

A stage without boundaries

What is a stage? When we think of going to watch a dance piece we think to walk into an auditorium, with a well defined stage and seats. But if you think how stage work evolved through history, it passed on from livingroom feasts to openair ancient theaters.  A stage can be anywhere you want it to be! This is a dance movie where mountain tops, to ancient theaters to the livingroom become the stage.
