“Awesome, a chance to share and connect with others. A different perspective and positive way of helping my mind and body”
“It shows we do not need to hide…Thank you for bringing us together, it is so good to know you are not alone!”
“Powerful to see the issue explored through movement and to hear about how it was developed”
Scottish choreographer Julia James-Griffiths will be delivering another Mind To Move workshop this August as a part of The Box Project. 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. Anyone who has attended a Mind To Move workshop will also be eligible to receive a discounted ticket to see a performance of The Box on tour this Autumn.
