dancing to be drawn

Today I joined Susie in the studio at URC Summertown  to dance improvise to Malcolm Atkin’s live music in The DEC Project’s Drawing Dance Workshop.  Open to experienced artists and students,  it is an opportunity to draw, sketch, paint, or mold directly from dancing figures.  For the dancers  it is an opportunity to improvise always conscious that you are the moving subject for the artists to work from.  Malcolm with his  set up of keyboards, loops and violin creates amazing atmosphere and soundworlds that both set the shifting moods or respond to the dancers moves.  Artists, dancers and musician become absorbed in their creations and the unique world that emerges between music, dance and drawing.  Over 3 hours the time has passed and you feel you have only just begun.
