Join the Gold Coast’s first professional contemporary dance company in a weekend workshop in how to be a farmer. No, we’re not talking about working a plow. We’re talking dance - Farm style. The Farm have a national and international reputation for making some of Australia’s most exciting dance and physical theatre and we would like to share our knowledge, enthusiasm, dance moves, improvisation, partnering and imagination in a fun workshop for anyone aged 12 to 22.
This workshop will be run by The Farm’s professional performers onboard to facilitate a program ranging from improvisation to Farm repertoire in a supportive and engaging environment. It’s a great way to discover what makes The Farm tick and why our work has been seen all over the world.
GreenHouse: A Youth Workshop encourages and inspires students to be themselves and to find their own artistic voice. It starts with a warm up and investigates not only how your body moves but why. Trust is crucial so we train partnering skills (something we’re very good at!) to develop camaraderie and teamwork - hallmarks of our creative process. Improvisational games will develop the participant's own imaginations and challenge them to find their spontaneity. Finally repertoire from specific Farm productions will be referenced and taught to give a window into our reasons and enjoyment for doing what we do.
