Join filmmaker Anna Cady and movement artist Brenda Waite for a playful interdisciplinary workshop exploring ways to create, experience and interpret space and film in relation to the body.
Anna and Brenda make work about the human condition. Their short film INVISIBLE (screening from 6-13 Nov at John Hansard Gallery and City Eye as part of Southampton Film Week) explores - from the perspective of older women - what it is to be unseen.
A film screening of INVISIBLE, images, writing and movement exercises, all combine to offer an exploratory session aiming to enliven the senses and the imagination in order to tune into, inform and inspire your expressive movement potential.
In this workshop we will expand our physical presence and spatial awareness, foster our connection with one another and our surroundings.
‘I enjoyed the opportunities to explore body, mind and imagination. So exciting and stimulating in every way.’
Anna Cady: My intention, in making films co-creatively with artists and non-artists, is to enable conversations about differing points of view. Screenings include Tate Modern, London Short Film Festival and Sundance Film Festival. Installations of my films with live performance / projection include events within James Turrell’s Sky Space and multiple installations at National Trust properties. www.annacady.com
