Playing with Dance: Workshop with Nic Gareiss for Traditional Musicians

Saturday 8th June at St. Leonard’s Land Studio, Edinburgh.

This workshop will explore musician & dancer collaboration, sparking conversation around listening skills, dialogue and creative connections. After trying out a little foot music, participants will play with percussive dancer Nic Gareiss.

“I feel extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with many incredible musicians. They have patiently and generously taught me about time, feel, phrasing, dialogue, amplification, audio recording, and most of all, helped me reimagine traditional dance as soundscape.” Nic Gareiss.
