In this taster workshop, be one of the first to experience a brand new immersive project where choreographer Robert Clark explores the deep unspoken connections between ourselves and others.

“feeling invisible, cocooned, a sense of safety” Audience Member

“a shocking experience to be participating in the work as a dancer, an emotional experience” Audience Member

Over the past year Robert has been working with a collaborative team of experts (psychologists, neuroscientists and an illusionist) to develop MASS, a work that looks at people - how we connect with one another and how these connections may hold the key to us understanding ourselves and each other in new and wonderful ways. The workshop is a chance to explore Robert’s research, to take part in the development of the work and to find out more about MASS.

You’ll be both spectator and participant, moving between conversation and interactive exercises, with a glimpse into some of the surprising and exciting outcomes of Robert’s research, offering you the chance to experience yourself in relation to others in potentially illuminating ways. Empathy, mirroring, embodied memory, sense of being, projection of self and fusing with others are some of the themes that have been developed in MASS.

This opportunity will be open to those from all backgrounds with some physical/movement experience, aged 18 and above. There will also be a chance to express an interest in the next stage of the project, inspired by what Robert has found and is still discovering.
