The teachers and the artist planned workshops in which learners would focus on:
• listening, collaboration and discussion skills to develop their performances,
• generating their own ideas and using their previous knowledge, for example, when making pottery to use as offerings and
• developing dance movements that reflected those seen in cave paintings and geological patterns.
The artist e-mailed an initial outline of the project to the schools before the first workshops. Much of the subsequent work relied on the learners’ own ideas within this framework.
