Act Refinement and Performance

Mon 6th - Sat 11th August Mon 13th - Fri 17th August

Act Creation & Refinement
6.00pm – 7.30pm ­ (week 2, improver/intermediate)

*LIMITED PLACES AVAILABLE

This is for participants who feel confident technically in their chosen aerial apparatus: trapeze, fabric, rope or hoop and you should arrive with a short sequence of material that you are very comfortable with and music that inspires you to move, or an image or emotion that you want to explore.

Come with an open mind and heart to play, explore your ideas on your chosen aerial apparatus. Chantal will mentor you to develop a solo, Chantal will bring the group together at times during the session to work together playing theatre games and chorographical exercises to help you develop aerial material. Our goal is to create ease of moving in and out of the floor and up and off the equipment.

Please bring a notebook and pen/pencil with you. 

NB If you have a specific piece of equipment you would like to explore please bring it with you and we will work with you to rig it.

 

Act Refinement 

4.15pm – 5.45 pm - (week 1, skilled/advanced)

6.00pm - 7.30pm  - (week 2/shared space with Act Creation)

*LIMITED PLACES AVAILABLE

This class is open to skilled and advanced aerialists who already have an act, or sequences of movement, which they are hoping to continue to develop, to question and to deepen. 

What makes an act, or a short-form work? 

How can we compose, articulate, transcend? 

What are the performing habits we have, and how can we move beyond them?   

This class will bring us together and allow much individual work time as we share the evolution of the work over the course of the week.  The class will culminate with an opportunity to present your work to an audience on the evening of Saturday 11th or 18th August. You can however just come to the class to experience the process – performing is optional.

FYI Working height for the performances 6m or 8 max.

 

Performance Lab to Act Creation

6pm – 7.30pm (week 1, intermediate upwards)

This is for participants with a good to strong technical experience on one aerial apparatus: trapeze, fabric, rope and hoop and you should arrive with a short sequence of material that you are very comfortable with. 

NB If you wish to bring your own equipment that you want to work on, where at all possible we will try to rig it in the studio.

Come with an open mind and heart to play, explore and share as a group and open to supporting each other to create a safe creative environment. 

Chantal will use theatre games and choreographic exercises to help develop aerial material, focusing on how to express emotions, and play with scale on aerial equipment.  Chantal supports you throughout the session and helps you develop your own creative voice as an artist

Our goal is to create ease of moving in and out of the floor and up and off the equipment, connecting your individual story with the audience.

Please bring a notebook and pen/pencil with you. Chantal has been teaching this type of lab for almost 8years as part of the IADF and Creative Intensive course in IACC in Ireland. 

 

Vertical Dance & Aerial Dance Harness Act Refinement Lab
6.00pm – 7.30pm (week 2, skilled/advanced)

*LIMITED PLACES AVAILABLE

Come with an idea, or a music track that inspires you to move, or an image or emotion that you want to explore, together with a willingness to investigate a proposition on single or side ick up harness on the wall or floor.

Expect to be gently encouraged to be braver and dig deeper to challenge and surprise yourself.

This is your opportunity to learn more about your creative process.

For this class you can choose to work either with Kat or with Lindsey. We will ask you to state your preference and try to accommodate this.

Should you wish to work towards performing your piece there will be an opportunity to do so on the evening of Sat 18th. You can however just come to the class to experience the process – performing is optional.

NB If you have a particular simple rigging proposition you would like to explore (within reason) we will endeavour to work with you to rig it. If it requires special equipment then please discuss it with Lindsey in advance info@gravity-levity.net.
