Free: Event sponsored by Galway Dance Project and supported by the Galway City Museum. The DROP project was also supported by a residency at Dance Ireland 2016.

DROP with the language of home this winter solstice. Find your personal choreography. This workshop will deepen your connection with yourself and local and international communities in 2017 through the exploration of basic principles of dance, relaxation, organisation and presence. We will explore the embodiment of home -engaging with both personal and public spaces within ourselves and in relationship.

The objective is to explore deepest types of movement democracy and inclusivity by dropping to consciously engage with the place of home through presence. This work is influenced by the Contemplative Dance Practices of Barbara Dilley and translated by Bernadette Divilly to engage with the culture of the west of Ireland.

All welcome: This workshop is appropriate for anybody with a body who is curious about mindful movement and simple choreographic practices. This workshop suits both professional artists and the community at large. The theme this time is the language of home. Explored and engaged with through the poetry of bodies engaging with memory, place and the architect of the city.
