Love & Loss Weekend Workshop

Date: 24th/25th September

Time:  10:00am to 5:00pm

Where: The Artworks London Bridge, 60A Weston St, SE1 3QP

Cost: £150 (concessions available)

Description:

A weekend workshop exploring creative and embodied ways of sharing experiences of love and loss through body-based work, performance and storytelling. In 2017 we premiered Total Eclipse, a performance that we produced following the deaths of our mothers. The show uncovers the depth of emotions that can be felt during the grieving process and also at times of significant change and transition.
It’s been a challenging 2 years for many of us involving significant change, transition and loss. 
This workshop is an opportunity to explore how you can use Moving Pieces' integrated approach to reveal, share and help manage these experiences, building skills in a sensitive, relaxed and perhaps surprisingly uplifting weekend.
