Moving Music at Poplar Union

Moving Music • Saturday 3 March • 10:30am – 5pm

For over 20 years, Suzy Willson and Paul Clark – Artistic Directors of Clod Ensemble – have collaborated to create a unique body of performance work which blends original music and movement.

In this day-long workshop, Suzy and Paul will share some of the principles that underpin their work and some exercises which explore the relationship between movement and music. In theatre, dance, opera and film music is used in myriad ways – to heighten intensity, to emotionally manipulate, as wallpaper, or to be the structure of the piece.

In this session, which features music by Bach, Kendrick Lamar, Carl Stalling, Miles Davis, Purcell, Ray Charles, Stravinsky and music from some of Clod Ensemble’s recent shows, we explore how what we see is fundamentally affected by what we hear.

Moving Music is free to attend but places are limited. If you are interested in taking part, please send your CV and an expression of interest to by Friday 23 February, 10am.

Part of Reboot, Clod Ensemble’s artist development programme.
