BARCO Dance collection is a project curated and performed by Dinis Machado. This is a collection of dances developed by choreographers invited by Dinis. Dinis’ brief for the choreographers was to consider that the space where the dances happen is not the room performed in but the space of the body itself.
Over the duration of his residency at Metal Dinis has invited choreographer Lucy Suggate, to work with him to add to the collection of ten dances.
In this one-hour workshop, Lucy will share some of the methods she used with Dinis and take inspiration from his solos. If you are interested in coming along to this workshop please email Ruth@metalculture.com or book your free place here.
