Two weeks ago MonixArts visited Oaklodge School in Wandsworth, a school for students with hearing, communication, speech and language needs aged 10-19. Alongside the performance piece, we created a workshop that incorporates British Sign Language within contemporary dance. Monica and Erena delivered the first workshop of “Signs”, which enabled the young participants to engage with dance and use their skills and knowledge to choreograph their own short phrases either within groups and/or individually.
Both Monica and Erena thoroughly enjoyed working with such engaged and interesting young people and have learnt a lot about how ‘Signs’ can speak to those with additional communication needs. It is inspiring to see the talent and potential!
We are continuing to develop the Creative Learning programme for “Signs” further. If you would like us to lead one of our workshops for you do get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org
