This workshop/seminar explores connecting places and people with creative expression and asks: How can the digital world help the arts break physical boundaries? Digital technologies have changed the way we interact with the world in ways not thought possible ten years ago. We want to change it again by using social media as a tool to interpret and share artistic content as part of a creative process which produces a performance. Our workshop there is “Open space” (Bring: Smartphone, tablet, camera, laptop and loose clothes to move in. There will be movement involved from a contemporary dance angle, however there are other ways to participate if you don’t want to do so physically. We will be experimenting with Facebook, Twitter, Qr codes, Google maps, cameras and camera phones, and any other platforms you feel comfortable using.

 

Joumana Mourad is a dancer, choreographer and the artistic director at IJAD Dance Company.
Joumana is of Lebanese and Argentinean origins and both cultural influences have informed her work: her
movement language, which is a hybrid of a range of styles such as Raqs Sharqui, physical theatre, contemporary and neo-classical but the outcome is essentially contemporary. She is drawn towards immersive forms for engaging her audience. Her early dance training began in Beirut and continued at the Laban Centre, London. Following the completion of her MA in Dance and Choreography at Middlesex University Mourad has created productions for IJAD as well as choreographing for a diverse spectrum of organisations that include; Jumeira Productions, Piedo Dance Company USA, Polite Company, the National Youth Music Theatre Company and US Advertising Agency Big Photographic
