Winter Fest 2018

to Jan 13

Winter Fest 2018

Dance House Glasgow take up residence in the CCA from Sat 6th to Sat 13th January with a celebratory festival programme of participatory dance classes, dance-along screenings, artist labs and opportunities for professional dancers. From absolute beginners to experienced dancers, there is something for all abilities embracing world, contemporary and classical styles.

Scotland's 1940/50s inspired Dance Troupe, The Kennedy Cupcakes, will take participants on an adventure back in time, learning a fun-filled dance routine to a soundtrack of Golden Era classics.

Participants will also be invited to explore the world of Bollywood; try their hand at exotic styles such as Bellydance; or opt for an introduction to the art of Flamenco. In an ode to the ‘decades’ attendees can take part in sessions inspired by vintage styles from the roaring 20s such as the Charleston as well as 70s Disco and 80s Jazz.

During the festival, artists Adam Sloan and Rosalind Masson will take part in our Creative Lab programme which furnishes artists wishing to develop a new or existing piece of work with a week-long residency. They act as an incubator for nurturing choreographic talent and a testing ground for the growth of embryonic ideas. Throughout the festival they’ll be sharing their work with audiences.

We’ll also be hosting ‘Dayklub’; a family friendly daytime disco as well as a dance along family screening of blockbuster adventure film Moana. Dance House Glasgow will lead a fun and inclusive warm up, teach you key dance moves to the film’s iconic soundtrack and lead you through simple and catchy sequences whilst you watch the movie.

Mele Broomes Creative Lab
Sep

to Sep 15

Mele Broomes Creative Lab

Grin inverts the continued colonial narratives of black bodies and Caribbean dance styles being solely hyper-sexualised and eroticised. Grin is a celebratory performance, inviting you into the carnival. 

Mele’s work is mediated through Sound (Sculpture), Dance (Rhythm) and Light. Her focus begins with Rhythm and Movement and its potential to undermine (Colonial) Hierarchies of Power. Through research into the Politics of Movement within the African Diaspora, Grin will explore how sound and dance are translated. This provocative production will examine what it means when this translation is displaced and absorbed by the spectacle. 

Mele will perform in the work alongside emerging dancers who have come through the Project X programme. www.projectxplaform.co.uk 

“Grin is still a work-in-progress, but already the interaction between her dance and lighting – with a gradual reveal of the West Indian roots of her movement – is utterly absorbing.” Mary Brennan, The Herald.

    Movement as Behavior

    Exploring Rules of Engagement

    Negotiation and Reshaping

    Strategic Thinking

Click here to book

These creative and engaging sessions, led by Glasgow based performance artist and choreographer Caroline Bowditch, draw on Principles of Universal Design in dance pioneered by Jürg Koch at the University of Washington, Seattle. Instead of a disability specific approach of ‘adapting’ movement to suit individuals, this approach allows everyone in the class to work with the same principles and use them in a way that works for them and allows them to push themselves. www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_design 

More about Caroline can be found at www.carolinebowditch.com

The sessions will be held in a wheelchair accessible space and BSL interpretation is available on request (with 1 weeks’ notice).
