December 5th – 9th, Knowing Body and WINLAB in London

Curated by Miranda Tufnell and members of the Knowing Body Network this week will share practice and insight from dance artists (and a musician ) working in the growing field of dance and health. Through workshops and presentations, films and discussions each day will take a themed aspect of this work. Filipa Pereira-Stubbs shares her work with the elderly in hospitals, Lisa Dowler and her work in Alder Hey children’s hospital, Jasmine Pasch and Karen Adcock Doyle share their experience of working in early years and child development, Cai Tomos and Jonah Brody share their recent collaboration work on the wards, and Penny Collinson will lead a sessions on looking after ourselves: skills of attention and self-care when working with other people. This week is a unique opportunity for dance artists interested in working in these fields to work with dancers highly experienced in the beauty and challenges of this field.
