Blog - RTYDS / Day 4: Learn to move like you…

Movement maker and shaker Ryan Harston of regionally-based Urban Conceptz led a morning workshop on day 4. After limbering up, the group worked individually, in pairs and a collective. They learnt about working with their own physicality as well as being attuned to others around them.

The workshop included character metamorphosis across the room: where one character subtly morphs into another along a path. They moved like a Greek chorus each taking turns to lead shifting in style and dynamic creating some strong imagery. The session culminated with a marriage of movement, text and music.

Quote of the day: “Every day has the potential to be the most it can be”
