Residencies and education commissions

We are interested in delivering residences that involve working through a creative process for a period ( i.e. I week – 5 weeks) with groups with the option of leading to a performance opportunity. This would involve sharing the our practice of:


-tuning the body and mind and our listening/sensing skills

-sourcing, developing and refining material from a variety of different starting points, ie pure physical tasks or text or objects

-questioning intentions, observing decision making and facilitating discussions.
