Led by Abhijeet Tambe and Suresh Kaliyath, this workshop examines the connection between music and movement, with a focus on creating movement sequences to rhythm. The artists will present a short improvisation followed by exercises, giving participants an opportunity to work in groups to create their own movement phrases. Participants are encouraged to bring a musical instrument. This workshop is also open to non-musicians.
