Coaching for professionals
Tuesday 29.06 - Thursday 01.07
Choreographer Jonathan Burrows leads a workshop focusing on discussion leading to practical work in the studio. Emphasis will be towards investigating choreographic and compositional process, performance and philosophies, questioning how a dance can be made and what it can communicate to someone watching. Practical work will concentrate on short task-based exercises looking at how to find material and work with time, to hold the attention of an audience and make them care what happens next. Days will be punctuated also with viewpoints on other mediums and ways of working, asking all the time what dance can do and what it can’t do.
This workshop is for anyone involved in performance who is interested in re-examining and extending their own process and practice.
