The human body and how we ‘speak’ with it can be extremely direct and equivocal. After 20 years as dancers, Mark Lorimer and Cynthia Loemij (both instrumental collaborators with Rosas/Anne-Teresa De Keersmaeker) are beginning work on a duet that explores communication and intimacy with a focus on music. In this week-long workshop, Mark Lorimer will be opening up the process to include the group to develop their own improvisational and written material. What can dance specifically express about experience? What creates intimacy, successful communication, effective speaking and real listening? And how do we fail to connect?

Mark Lorimer graduated from LCDS, London, in 1991 and has worked with a.o. Rosas/Anne-Teresa De Keersmaeker (on and off since 1994), ZOO/Thomas Hauert, Deborah Hay (The Match), Jonathan Burrows and The Featherstonehaughs. He has taught at ImpulsTanz, PARTS, the Laban Centre, LCDS and International Dance Dialogues at Panetta Movement Center.
