Call for Dancers / Collaborators

I am holding research / workshop sessions over May / June @ Clarence Mews, Hackney. Each 3 hour session will include a ‘class’ where I draw on my work as a pilates teacher and my experience and interest as a dance maker, to bring the body to a place where it is ready to move. This will be followed by some creative workshop-ing where I try out some of my ideas with technology in preparation for a funded project that will take place in Summer (depending on the outcome of a GFA). I am looking for a maximum of 2 artists per session to come and join me on the following dates:

18th May 2-5pm
25th May 2-5pm
1st June 2-5pm
8th June 2-5pm

I cannot pay for your time, however I can offer each artist £10 towards costs. I am hoping to work with a number of artists with a view to finding a collaborator to participate in the next (paid) project. I am looking for dancers with a mature attitude, a ‘presence’ that brings to life even the simplest of movements and a committed and rigorous approach. Someone whose movement is ‘uncluttered’ would suit the work best.

Please get in touch if you’re interested.
