Movement 4 Queers
In this workshop for self-identified Queer people, Zinzi explores queerness and the queering of moving bodies through dance. The workshop is for a small group of people and is inspired by Zinzi’s practice looking at how dance is perceived through the prisms of race, queer culture, gender and class.

Dance and Object
This workshop is often delivered in gallery spaces and uses Zinzi’s process of using objects, and other artworks to make dance. The workshop is usually 90 mins, using the gallery’s collection on display at the time, participants will be taken through task based work to build a piece of performance. The workshop is fast, fun, and allows participants to engage with making dance with confidence. Sound is used, chosen by the participants and is played throughout the session.
