In the next two months we will be holding 6 Ensemble Thinking sessions taught by Julie Lebel  – our Artistic Director, and member of the Lower Left CollectiveThis practice is open to all (dancers, theatre, visual artists and musicians – instruments welcomed and/or engage in the moving practice)! This is an adult-only practice, 18yrs +. 

Ensemble Thinking is a system of collaborative group performance practices. These composition exercises refine the individual’s ability to perceive, initiate, and support collective action. More about Ensemble Thinking here.

Where: our Fieldhouse at Jonathan Rogers park

Cost: Free! If you would like to contribute and support Foolish Operations and our activities such as this one, consider becoming a member of our society here.

Registration: please register here.

Access Notes: Bring your sandwich, water, sunscreen, cozy clothes. You may enjoy having socks (the dance mat is black and may be hot if it is sunny), but barefoot is also ok. Note that we will be dancing outside on our dance mat, which will be set on grass and the surface may be uneven.

Wheelchair access: There is paved access to the park via the parking space beside the fieldhouse. Our dancing mat on the grass is challenging for motorized mobility devices.

Documentation note: As this workshop is run in a public park, we can not control documentation from passers-by. We will put up a sign asking people not to take photos or videos. However, we can’t control this completely. We will create a collective agreement about internal documentation at the start of the workshop.
