Mark Murphy

This movement workshop will explore Mark’s intensely physical movement vocabulary and the artistic and creative processes inherent in his work.

‘Telling tales’ will be the main theme of the creative exploration that will use elements of other art forms such as music, text, still images and film clips as the starting point to create work that is movement-based physical theatre with a multi-tiered approach.

The workshop will look at the dialogue between different artistic media and the use of movement as the central emotional language through which to communicate.

Mark Murphy is a director, choreographer, film-maker and was founder and Artistic Director of V-TOL Dance Company. Most recently, he directed and wrote A Wing and a Prayer at BAC.

Mark has become renowned for developing a unique genre that integrates dance, film, music, design and text, conveying ideas and stories through a highly visual multi-layered structure.
