Soft fruit punch  

Open Workshops

In January 2020 Rob is offering two free 2-hour movement workshops exploring themes of connection and intimacy between people raised as/identifying as male. 


Using initial discussions around love and patriarchy as a stimulus we’ll explore solo, partner and group improvisations, working with a focus on breath, gesture and different qualities of touch. Pulling from Rob’s creative practice and new performance work ‘Soft fruit punch’, these workshops will draw together elements from a range of performance practices.


Both workshops are part of the wider research process for Soft fruit punch. They are both fully inclusive and accessible, and open to fathers, sons, brothers, grandfathers, uncles, boyfriends, lovers and anyone raised as male/male identifying over the age of 16.


Workshops will be taking place at the following venues:


Metal (Chauffeur's Cottage), Peterborough, Thursday 23rd January - 6-8pm

Biggin Hall, Future Foundry, Dover, Wednesday 29th January - 6-8pm

Both venues are fully wheelchair accessible.


Participants need no previous experience in performance or dance, but should bring with them courage, sensitivity and a curiosity to learn and experience new things. Participants should also wear loose fitting clothes that they would be comfortable to move in. Places are limited to 15 so please book in advance. 


For more information or any specific access needs please contact Rob directly on rwhesp@gmail.com
