Where?

The Work Room, Glasgow (06/04/22 @ 13:00)

Alba Flamenca, Edinburgh (13/04/22 @ 13:00)

Leticia Sanchez and Anders Rigg would like to invite you to join the first ever Project Unspoken Workshop in April. In the workshop we will share with you the new methodology that we have developed for creating music and dance; in the same space, at the same time.


Through this combination, Unspoken finds different ways of communication between art disciplines, cultures, non-verbal and verbal language. It strives to rediscover the age-old connection that exists between these forms of expression, bringing with it a fresh tide of experiences.

This workshop aims to reflect the project with as even a mix of music and dance as possible. This will be reflected in who is chosen for the workshop if there are more applications than we have spaces. For those who are not able to join us this time there will be a waiting list for future workshops and in case of cancellations.

We are asking that those who apply have a minimum of 3 years experience in their artform, (music, dance, spoken word etc.) This does not need to be in a performative or professional setting.

We would like to reiterate that it is not a competitive process of application, we only wish to create the right balance of artforms in the studio with us. If you are not able to access the google form then please feel free to contact us by email on sanchezandrigg@gmail.com

This will be a free workshop. 

Deadline: 31st March at 5pm

Exchange, process and decisions...

The studio is the beginning and heart of the process, providing a stage for the creative energies to be let loose.

Hours of talking and days of playing, moving and discovering.  Each step bringing us closer to the goal of sharing and keep developing our new language for creation and performance.

If you would like more information about our studio work and future plans for Unspoken or you have some thoughts that you would like to share, please don't hesitate to contact us.

AN DANNSA DUB - TOM SPIRALS & EUAN MCLAUGHLIN - SANCHEZ & RIGG

An Dannsa Dub (The Dub Dance in Scots Gaelic) fuses the mystic sounds and instruments of traditional Gaelic songs with the heavy, driving basslines of dub music. Headed by dub producer, MC & Scottish Alternative Music Award ‘Best Live Act’ 2021 nominee Tom Spirals; and trad multi-instrumentalist Euan McLaughlin from 2020 Danny Kyle award-winning band Lapwyng, An Dannsa Dub proves trad and dub can blend with ease: after all, both genres lead you to consider the spiritual, the magical, and the unexpected. Stunning Scottish locations, from Crawick Multiverse (sister to Jupiter Artland and The Garden of Cosmic Speculation) to a remote bothy on the Southern Upland Way hiking trail, set the scene for the single’s accompanying music video; providing the eerie tale of how the An Dannsa Dub musicians came to acquire these futuristic songs.
