MOVEMENT AND DANCE MASTERCLASS

Physical Listening, A Guided Physical Experience

Physical Listening explores our untapped capacity for attending, observing and listening to other moving bodies.  The work nudges aside assumptions and accesses unexpected choices. We look at our accountability for making choices.

Areas of skill investigation include tactile, proprioceptive, visual, and auditory. The outcomes are personal discovery, gaining new skills sets and evocative discussion.

This class begins with inner explorations and moves into full bodied investigations in duos and small groups, covering:

    Physical Listening

    Movement as Behavior

    Exploring Rules of Engagement

    Negotiation and Reshaping

    Strategic Thinking

 The dialogues cross disciplines and boundaries.  Movers of all levels welcome.

Writing Dance with Jonathan Burrows

  • Tramway

Choreographer Jonathan Burrows leads a one day intensive workshop investigating choreographic process, performance and philosophies, questioning how a piece can be made and what it might 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. The day 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.

The workshop is open to dancers, students, theatre makers, curators, presenters, musicians, visual artists and anyone else interested in performance. www.jonathanburrows.info

Part of Dance International Glasgow (DIG), a new biennial dance event for Glasgow and Scotland, produced by Tramway
