The second in the Storecupboard Essentials series of workshops fresh from the Kneehigh Kitchen and delivered by celebrated choreographer and Kneehigh Associate Artist, Etta Murfitt. Expect a vigorous warm up, a joyful dance to get to know each other and some creative tasks to explore making movement!
Having choreographed The Wild Bride, The Flying Lovers of Vibsek, 946, Dead Dog in a Suitcase (and other love songs) and The Tim Drum, Etta knows exactly how to create joyful and creative movement for theatre.
