Event description

Description

Every Saturday throughout the exhibition, two workshops will take place.
Workshop 1 12.00-13.00
Workshop 2 14.00-15.00

SAT 16TH FEBRUARY – THE PLAYGROUND DEEPER
WORKSHOP FOR ARTISTS OF ANY DISCIPLINE

The Playground is a place of collaboration and sharing of ideas between artists of different disciplines. This workshop extends upon those ideals. Normally hosted at Rambert's building on Southbank, this workshop will give a different context to learn about collaboration.

Facilitator Vanessa Kang will lead through a series of exercises, games and scenarios to enable tools for collaboration. Placing emphasis on dealing with difference and maintaining a sense of identity whilst working with others.

Play can create a joyful body so for any starting point, what better place to be.
Play is an essential to children's development but also to non-verbal forms of process. Whilst as adults we can be discouraged against our 'childlike' selves, this embodiment of potential is an exciting one.

Observers welcome.


SAT 23RD FEBRUARY – GENDERED BODIES
PERFORMANCE ART WORKSHOP – ALL LEVELS
What is gender, a construct or instincts? Do we feel our gender? Is it internal or what we show?

Practical movement based workshop looking at the performing of gender, based on observation, imitation and embodiment. Starting with projections of gender as a social construct, Choreographer Stephen Quildan leads a series of two workshops on what it means to perform Gender. By recognising what is our own and what we have learnt he hopes to uncover more of our true selves.

This workshop is appropriate for all levels of movement. Loose clothing recommended.



SAT 2ND MARCH – IMAGE MAKING
DANCE/PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP –ALL LEVELS

Jack Thomson will be leading two fascinating workshops investigating the relationship between dance and the camera, revealing his artistic practice and processes along the way.

Workshop 1 - role of the photographer with the subject/dancer.

Workshop 2 - role of the dancer/subject and how these roles work together to create composition.

"Combining my interests inside and outside the dance studio, has developed my personal, multidisciplinary interests and work. Most of the work I make is largely about the relationship between the moving body and the camera and the context in which these two come together.”
- Jack Thomson

Participation in both workshops is highly advised.

Bring your own cameras and loose clothing recommended.

SAT 9TH MARCH – BORDERLESS?
MOVEMENT WORKSHOP – ALL LEVELS

Mark Baldwin OBE, artist of 'Embodied Knowledge' leads this rare practical movement workshop. Co-creation and embodied knowledge have led him to make new work with artists of specific cultural backgrounds, such as African Zulu, New Zealand Maori and worked in dance ecologies in Japan, Colombia, Turkey and Europe.

In the workshops Mark will open up collaboration, improvisation and endless invention for artists to learn to further develop their own territory and voice.

"I start most of my work by listening and moving to music, I can also read music so if I have written score I will learn to follow it as I hear and see it on the page. I also make paintings. It's in these actions that I begin to make sense of what I might be trying to say, essentially I am looking for "something" by playing with ideas in time and space. I find music opens up my brain to all kinds pictorial thoughts, atmospheres, manners, attitudes, memories and feelings both from my body and my mind. I tend to listen to several different pieces of music usually along a chosen theme or musical direction e.g. choral works, new music, string sounds lately Japanese or Polynesian drumming. I am trying to go beyond the ideas and move towards another place where my Embodied Knowledge is informing me of a key direction."

No previous dance experience necessary.

Loose clothing recommended.
