May 15 -16, 2010

Create and Dublin Dance Festival presented a workshop in May designed for artists across all art forms who were looking to improve their skills and understanding of working collaboratively with people with disabilities.

Drawing from her 20 years of teaching experience with actors and dancers as well as her last three years working with people with disabilities, Heidi Latsky, Choreographer and Artistic Director of Heidi Latsky Dance and The GIMP Project, shared with workshop participants some of the choreographic processes and philosophies she had cultivated over the years. She was joined by GIMP cast member Catherine Long who is a trained Art Therapist.

Participants had a hands-on experience of The Latsky Method designed to help the participant feel more alive and calm and Latsky's methods of choreographing. It was not necessary to have experience of choreography or dance to have participated in this workshop.
