Talk, Dance, Be Honest presented by Sacha Copland


Join award winning choreographer Sacha Copland for a workshop exploring the connection between the body and honesty. The workshop will gently invite you into a world where speaking and dancing/moving collide. Multi-task until your body and mind let go of control. Recondition your internal censor, search for your own truth and let your body lead you into areas you usually avoid.


Sacha has created more than 21 full length dance theatre works over the past 19 years as the artistic director of Java Dance Theatre. She has toured all over the world. Now she wants to be honest and she wants to invite you to join her. Open to all and any artists with a desire to risk, fail, flail and dive into new open- hearted territory.


The workshop is inspired by Sacha’s ‘An Honest Conversation’ performance series. This series was research for her TAHI festival show ‘Emperor’s New Clothes’.


TAHI Workshops will be held in the Studio at BATS Theatre. For full details about accessibility at BATS, go to
