Resonances workshops

Oliver Weindling By Oliver Weindling

Résonances is a project combining art, music and dance. Here we are collaborating with Studio Upstairs to involve artists in Dalston in a therapeutic interaction, live and online. Also for listeners.

A series of workshops and performances will include members of Resonances (who are artists, musicians, dancers and poets) working with local artists and musicians. By collaborating with local art therapy organisations like Studio Upstairs, participants will be able to use art and music via The Vortex Jazz Club and extend their awareness of themselves through a broader view of the world. The workshops will be based out of award-winning Vortex, using the club, Gillett Square (outside) and digital interaction (especially relevant during lockdown). It evolves out of the Résonances live events, regularly at The Vortex and more recently online. Participants will therefore be involved in a multi-disciplinary and multi-interactive experience, being able to simultaneously experience the different art forms and learn how to link them together. Audiences will be presented with an immersive experience. In this way, it will help self-awareness.

What we'll deliver:

  • Organise weekly workshops and performance
  • Teaching how to interact between music, art, dance and poetry
  • A series of online programmes via Resonances portal

Why it's a great idea:

Artists to immerse in a multi-genre workshop and learn about interaction and improvisation. Exciting opportunities for audiences to experience various performances online and digitally. A series of pieces of visual art which can then be exhibited. An improved sense of wellbeing for participants. A template which can be extended either in Dalston or in other locations.

Steps to get it done:

  • Selecting a group of people to join in the workshops and performances
  • Create the performances, salons and workshops
  • Rehearse the workshops
  • Undertake the performances
  • Create an exhibition of the art, virtually and live (if possible)
  • Archive the series
