The Graduate Drama and Performance Seminar presents


Dance and Poetry Workshop

on Embodied Ecology

with Ghost And John

25th January 2024


Judith E Wilson Drama Studio, Faculty of English


Join contemporary art and cultural entrepreneur duo, Ghost and John, for an exciting dance and writing workshop on crossing disciplinary boundaries, exploring embodied ecologies and its potentials in interpreting borders, identities and migrants’ issues.  


Workshop Details

Ghost and John are a queer migrant activist duo who creates socio-politically pertinent performances, videos and installations for stages, galleries and outdoor spaces (

In this 2-hour workshop, Ghost and John share their methods in performance-making and embodied methods in semi-autobiographical works. Participants are encouraged to write poems or prose and make movements by exploring their personal embodied ecologies. We are experimenting with the exchange between dancing and writing, and gaining a deeper insight into the somatic methods and their potential in interpreting issues surrounding borders, identities and migration.

This workshop has a relaxed environment for everyone to explore new ways of expressing themselves and gaining creative insights. Participants are encouraged to engage in tasks and activities based on their own access needs.  There is a limited capacity of ten places for this event, allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.

This event is free and open to all.

Although the Faculty of English building has step-free access, the Judith E Wilson Drama Studio is located in the basement of the building and therefore accessible via a stairwell. Unfortunately, the Faculty lift is currently not available for use.

Please do not attend this event if you are experiencing any cold-like symptoms.


This event has been made possible with the support of a Judith E Wilson Fund Small Grants Award.
