Devising site-specific work

These images are from a workshop I led on Devising Site-specific Performance to the MA Dance Performance: Contemporary Dance, from the University of Limerick, Ireland. 

The workshop consisted of several practical exercises focused on either sonic, scenographic, movement and visual based tasks that triggered different ideas to develop performance work in a site-specific context.
The distinct and complementary approaches intended to open up new possibilities for creating pieces where a specific place is integrated as a fundamental component of the devising process, whilst also considering the intrinsic context-specific characteristics and intuitive associations that arise when working with non-theatrical spaces and everyday public locations.
