How Movement Works 2022 will take place on 18 – 22 July.

Booking now open! Don’t miss out on our Early Bird offer, now available until 30 April.


Course Outline

So what is movement anyway? Discover the answers during this week-long choreology intensive, based in our world class studios at the Laban Building.

The week will be an opportunity to research and explore movement and reflect how this can be embodied in your own practice.  It will significantly change and improve your creative practice.  There are bursaries available to help cover the costs of the intensive.

The week will include

  • An introduction to innovative and exciting choreological practice
  • Creating, performing and observing movement
  • Discussion and dialogue
  • An exploration of current developments of choreological movement theories and their specific application to contemporary performing arts disciplines

Who is this for?

The course is suitable for practitioners, 18yrs+ from different backgrounds and disciplines,  interested in movement, choreography, acting, performance, circus, physio and directing or teaching.  No previous experience of movement analysis theories is required.

Join us on the journey to reveal fascinating insights about what we look at when we watch performance and how expression is controlled, created and communicated.


“Fascinating, absorbing and exciting. The choreological understanding will change your professional practice significantly”
