Contemporary dance and photography

In this workshop, we will work on ideas, experiment it with dancing, to achieve a picture that tells a story. The picture itself is not the most important, but the story that each dancer will create with others to arrive at the last step (the picture). The participants of this workshop will be the subject of the pictures taken by me and will be sent to them. Please bring a book with you (will be used during the workshop).
