FRAME, a weekly online lab series curated by Claire Loussouarn and Kyra Norman with Independent Dance, returns for a second edition. This time it will be led by Simon Ellis, Cara Hagan and Judy Cole alongside Kyra and Claire.

FRAME is intended for experienced movement practitioners with an interest in exploring the creative and connective possibilities of moving together online, as well as those who are just beginning to explore these ideas.

The invitation is to gather as a temporary dispersed community of artists to create a playful laboratory space of moving bodies, cameras and screens, seeing Zoom as a framing device as well as communication tool. The curators particularly welcome the opportunity this presents to work as a wide community with participants attending from around the UK and internationally.

Participants from the first edition of FRAME are welcome to join us again. Whilst the principles and approach will be repeated, a new group of facilitators and participants will bring a new dynamic.

Each session includes a 1.5 hour practical session, followed by 30 minutes for informal conversation and discussion. The lab is offered as a series of seven sessions, as follows:

Thursday 10 February           Claire Loussouarn

Thursday 17 February            Simon Ellis and Claire Loussouarn

Thursday 24 February           Kyra Norman

Thursday 3 March                  Cara Hagan

Thursday 10 March                Claire Loussouarn & Kyra Norman

Thursday 17 March                 Judy Cole

Thursday 24 March                Claire Loussouarn & Kyra Norman

This online community was an incredibly important and valuable support for me and made me feel like I could continue to take creative risks and push what is possible
