Come and explore, create dance and movement with Helen. Helen will guide you through movement tasks to allow you to express your own unique way of moving. This will be a relaxed and fun workshop that will energise the body.
Helen is a dance artist based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. As someone with a visual impairment Helen is curious as to how her experience of interacting with the world around her may differ from others. It is this curiosity of the margins, and telling untold stories that intrigues her and often finds voice in her work. Helen creates and produces her own work including ‘Collecting Moments’, (commissioned by University of Atypical) performed at Bounce, 2021 and ‘Inside The Speaker’ (created from an Unlimited commission’, performed at The Belfast Children’s Festival 2020, CQAF, 2018 and Bounce 2017. As well as creating her own performance work, she regularly collaborates with many Belfast based arts organisations to devise and deliver performance-based projects. One such organisation is Open Arts, where she is currently the choreographer for Luminous Soul, a contemporary dance company for dancers with disabilities.
