What you’ll do
Experience the power of dance in an online movement workshop with choreographer Vania Gala.
Following a warm-up, Gala will introduce you to the meditative and trance-like state
that dancing can evoke as you move to music from Harold Offeh’s ‘The Joy Inside Our Tears’
No previous experience is required and you’ll be invited to move in whatever way is comfortable for you.
The workshop will be a live closed event with a small group of people, which will not be recorded.
We encourage cameras to be on so you can dance with others and ask questions.
After booking a ticket, you will receive a confirmation email with joining instructions.
About your contributorsHarold Offeh
Harold Offeh is a UK-based artist working in a range of media including performance, video,
photography, learning and social arts practice. Offeh is interested in the space created by inhabiting
or embodying histories, using humour to confront the viewer with historical narratives and
contemporary culture. He has exhibited widely in the UK and internationally, including Tate Britain
and Tate Modern, South London Gallery, Turf Projects (London), Kettle’s Yard, Wysing Arts Centre
Studio (Cambridge), Studio Museum Harlem (New York), MAC VAL (France) Kunsthal Charlottenborg
(Denmark) and Art Tower Mito (Japan). He recently completed a PhD exploring the activation of
Black album covers through performance. He is a Reader in Fine Art at Leeds Beckett University and a tutor in Contemporary Art Practice at the Royal College of Art.
Vânia Gala is a choreographer and researcher. Gala's choreographies and conversational
performances explore the critical potential of (non)performance(s) and opacity in the present time.
Her interests lie in critical dance studies, performance philosophy and experimental practices with
an emphasis on notions of refusal, choreo-thinking, fugitivity, improvisation(s), negotiation, dissensus, hospitality and value.
