Navigating Consent & Power in Dance Rehearsals
Join Rachel Vogler for a short online workshop on consent & power for those working in the dance industry or intending to.
Time & Location
27 Apr, 18:30 – 19:45 BST
About the Event
In this online workshop, Rachel will offer insights, research and practical tools to navigate consent and power in the rehearsal room.
You will deep-dive into some main messages around consent and power, understanding critical concepts of ‘freedom’ and ‘capacity’ in detail in order to critically asses myths around consent and its application in the rehearsal room. Then we will work together to build a bank of resources including exercises, phrases, rehearsal room charters and other such resources to support the ethical use of power in rehearsal rooms.
