Morning sessions will:

Focus on the company’s movement language and practice through daily class work.

The focus of the session will be on establishing and identifying the muscular connections found in the body through fascia and how guided and high energy improvisation can expand a dancers body, physicality and presence.

These qualities are then translated to different ways of crossing the space with capoeira vocabulary and improvisation tasks, before moving onto conditioning experiences in the centre and culminating in a highly physical set phrase for dancers to explore.

Afternoon sessions will:

Be workshop based using the company’s creative process, use of improvisation and contact work to prompt self-discovery by each dancer. Repertoire from the 2017 creation ‘At the end we begin’ will also be taught.

At the end of each day Richard will lead a brief discussion about the work covered.


Optional extras

Richard will also be available to lead optional talks on career development and brief one-to-one sessions offering feedback on CV’s and show-reels.
