The next two sessions of the Our Neighbourhood project are workshops with Steve Batts of Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company, and will take place on the 21st and 28th of March. These sessions will explore our environment through senses other than the visual, with particular reference to hearing, smell and touch. Over two consecutive Saturdays, participants will be taken through a series of exercises that seek to make a connection with the heightened experience of these non-visual senses that are characteristic of many non-human species.  The sessions will elicit creative responses to these heightened sensory experiences, which may be in a variety of media, including movement.

No previous experience is required. Please wear comfortable clothing.

The sessions will run from 10:30am to 3:30 pm in Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company Waterloo House, Magazine Street, Londonderry, Derry BT48 6HH. Lunch (by Pilgrim and Burns) will be provided.
