Online Professional Class
Thursday 2nd, Thursday 9th and Thursday 16th July
Over these three classes, whilst saluting the unusual interface and environs within which we are working, I am interested in briefly exploring autonomy and familial embodiment through movement.
- By playfully engaging with our own transmitter/receiver, puppet/puppeteer or right/left brain, we will look at how we signal information (qualities, speed, texture etc) within our body.
- We will develop our own unique languages by inviting family (including pets) to move into our different parts. These figures (dead or alive) might form into points of pause, balance, qualities, accénts – solo/simultaneous micro dances within the big dance.
If folks could have two writing tools, paper and maybe some thread handy it would be great. Video turned on is preferable for visual feedback but if not possible all is good.
To take part in these classes contact Firkin Crane by email firstname.lastname@example.org
Our drop in classes are taught by local, national and international professional dance practitioners.
In-Studio Professional Class
Thursday 23rd and Thursday 30th July
We will start the class stretching in an organic gentle way. From standing with slow movement, exploring connectivity, using the breath to release tension and finding fluidity in the body.
We will continue with standing exercises, flowing movement sequences that require very little travelling. We will be using different directions, weight and gravity as we move through creative choreographic dance sequences with a focus on the enjoyment of moving together.
COMMUNITY SPACE is suspended until further notice due to Covid-19.
