MIND TO MOVE workshops on Tour | OCTOBER 2019

September 2, 2019






As a part of The Box Project, and the tour of The Box, our Mind To Move workshops will be taken to 6 venues across Scotland this October. 


The movement workshops are for anyone aged from 18-65+ with experience of mental health issues, no dance experience is necessary. The workshop involves discussion, relaxation exercises, and led movement improvisation; with a focus in exploring and enjoying the benefits of movement and creative expression. Participants are encouraged to take part in whatever way they feel comfortable. 


All workshops end with a short excerpt sharing of The Box and an opportunity for participants to give feedback. The Box is a dance theatre piece that explores the impact depression can have on an individual, and how our society responds to it.


These workshops are FREE, and anyone who attends a workshop on tour will be eligible to receive a discounted ticket to see the performance of The Box the following day. For show dates and times please visit our Upcoming shows page.
