About the event

Apply now for Moving Pieces Summer School, 4-10 June, London at the Artworks Classrooms.

A one-week Summer School for performers, theatre-makers, dancers, choreographers, storytellers, therapists, mental health workers, students, young people and everyone in-between! This is an exciting opportunity to focus on developing your skills in how to use the performing arts and storytelling to positively shape mental health, enhance emotional wellbeing, bring the autonomic nervous system back into balance, and protect against depression and anxiety.

Over the course, you will be guided through the process of creating your own performance using the Moving Pieces approach.

This approach is unique in that it:

  1. combines movement, mask work, storytelling and improvisation with ideas from neuroscience and psychotherapeutic practices enabling an informed theatre-making process that evidently shapes mental health and wellbeing.
  2. teaches techniques that support physiological regulation, and how the body can be used to protect the mind.
  3. uses the creation of performing arts and storytelling as an alternative health provision.
  4. offers playful and creative ways of accessing difficult experiences, if participants are interested in using the performing arts to manage trauma and address underlying causes of depression and anxiety.

10am-5pm, Mon-Fri (Sat & Sun optional)
