DAY 1 | FRIDAY 18th SEPTEMBER
YOGA & MEDITATION | TIFFANY HAMILTON ATKINS Hamilton AtkinsMorning Movement MedicineTIME
Empowerment is at the heart of Tiffany’s teaching.
She offers classes deeply rooted in her embodied experience and from the heart.
Inspired by Anusara principles and tantric philosophy Tiffany creates uplifting, creative and challenging classes, which are centred on taking yoga off of the mat and into the real world; allowing people to navigate the ups and downs of life with more ease and ultimately bringing people back to themselves.Suitable for all
Tiffany sought out yoga as a way to rediscover movement and a connection to her body after moving away from dancing.
The impact was immediate and bought a renewed sense of energy, vigour and curiosity into her life. The transformational power of the spiritual, physical and emotional practice compelled her to take her 200 YTT so she could begin to share this magic with others.
OPENING COFFEE MORNING with SARAH BLANC How can we turn this current sh!t storm into a glitter storm?TIME
Hey Babes, join me, Sarah Blanc, for the first ever coffee morning of the first ever online TripSpace festival 2020 where we will get close, comfy and set intentions for the weekend ahead and beyond. I invite you to bring your questions and ask Contemporary Dance’s Sweetheart (that's me) anything you want. I have a Gold Medal in Optimism, a BA(hons) in Looking on the Bright Side and Masters in Nail Art.
How can we turn this current sh!t storm into a glitter storm? Or in the words of an academic how can we subverse the current disastrous conditions to something that we can truly develop and grow from. That wasn't even academic but for me it was a bit.
See you soon.
Don't be late.
Bring a brew. Suitable for all

WORKSHOP with BEN McEWEN Whatever state you’re in, whatever space you’re in! TIME
We’ll start from articulations for body and attention, drawing non-exhaustively on Steve Paxton’s Material for the Spine, martial arts, and my own lockdown researches. Using these investigations to define and refine connections and distinctions within ourselves, tasting potentials for ease, sensitivity and power. We'll gradually build from these into solo improvisations, finding ways to soften and sharpen our attention and decision making. We’ll work on creating spatially complex full-bodied dancing even within a restricted space... or at the very least enjoy shaking off some lockdown cobwebs! Suitable for professional dancers, movers, performers

TALK with RACHEL ELDERKIN A Future For Freelancers (restructuring the power dynamic)
The last few months have made visible the vulnerability of freelancers in our dance industry.
It's something we were all aware of, but how could we change the system?
Now we've paused. There's space for change. And we've realised how much that change is needed.
There are many conversations happening and a future in which freelancers are better supported and more highly valued is a tangible possibility - if we can keep the momentum going and find strength in our collective voice.
In conversation with Yukiko Masui, chair of Equity Dance Committee, we'll discuss the events and conversations of the last months, the needs of freelance artists moving forward, and the change we hope to see.
It's time to move forward together and restructure the power dynamic.Suitable for all

WORKSHOP | CHISATO OHNO Gaga/PeopleTIME
Gaga/people classes offer a framework for users to connect to their bodies and imaginations, experience physical sensations, improve their flexibility and stamina, exercise their agility and explosive power, and enjoy the pleasure of movement in a welcoming, accepting atmosphere. Throughout the class, participants are guided by a series of evocative instructions deployed to increase awareness of and further amplify sensation. Rather than turning from one prompt to another, information is layered, building into a multi sensory, physically challenging experience. Suitable for all
Professional dancer and teacher Chisato Ohno graduated from Central School of Ballet and danced with Netherlands Dans Theater 2, Batsheva Dance Company and Karas of Saburo Teshigawara.
