Workshop 1 – Freedom and/in Form
Sarah and Dominic will explore different styles of form in an effort to explore freedom of movement. Nonform based dance often gets confused with shapeless lack of skill. And perhaps that may be true. But what if we find that shapelessness is simply another form of movement. How can we as dancers use forms to investigate the in-betweens - the moment of transition. How can we develop our skillset, making use of different forms to find freedom in transitioning between them seamlessly.
WORKSHOP 2 Lucidity in Action
An opportunity to embody and discuss the practices that lie at the heart of Theo’s work.
He will be inviting dancers to bring attention to their perceptive experience of the space, of the other dancers and of their own moving body to find greater lucidity in action and a sense of connection within the group. This will be followed by phrases and group improvisations that encourage articulate and expansive dancing. Theo will then share some exploratory and creative tasks from various creative processes, many of which use working with response to divert performers self consciousness. Theo will be cultivating a generous and inclusive safe space for all those that attend.
