'The Body Speaks' Oxford - two day physical theatre and dance workshop

'The Body Speaks' Oxford - two day physical theatre and dance workshop
The Oxford Old Fire Station Arts Centre

Cafe Reason hosts a two day workshop 'The Body Speaks' at The Old Fire Station, Oxford. It will be a great opportunity to learn from Yael Karavan's unique combination of Dance, physical theatre, Butoh and mime.


Yael explores some of the key issues for the performer, and is offering a palette of tools and possibilities in the creative process exploring ‘presence’, metamorphoses, rhythm, intention, imagery and counterpoint as well as how to relate creatively to material, objects and space.


'As performers our being is our tool of expression and as such it is a rather complex and rich tool'. Yael is offering a number of creative approaches to facilitate the imaginative journey and the pleasure to rediscover our 'tool' through games, improvisations and exploration of the infinite possibilities that are hidden within ourselves.


Yael Karavan is an inspiring performer/director and tours internationally. Please see her website for more info and her biog.

Shavnabada Georgian Choir

Shavnabada Georgian Choir
Trinity College Chapel

A unique opportunity to see a truely incredible choir from Tbilisi Georgia. Shavnabada returns after a brief visit to Cambridge in May 2009 where they were seen as outstanding. One of the Patriarch's choirs, Shavnabada makes accessible to an English audience Georgian traditions, song, (both chuch and folk), dance and culture through an English narrative and exciting performance.

Lead by Davit Tsintsadze the artistic director and inspiration behind the choir of 12 strong male voices, Shavnabada's passions lie in resurrecting Monastery and Folk Music that had all but disappeared from Georgian culture as a result of Georgia being part of the Soviet Union. Davit has made it his life's work to find, record and film examples of traditional Georgian singing in order to preserve, resurrect, sing and celebrate it across the country and across the world. Shavnabada have been schooled by the great Anzor Erkomaishvili, who founded the Rustavi ensemble and it is within this spirit Shavnabada now perform and teach otherwise previously unheard Georgian folk and church music.

Shavnabada will be giving a workshop at St. Paul's church Thursday 11th November 7:00-10:00pm
