Beyond Technique – north coast NSW

I will be traveling up to Alstonville, which is situated on the northern coast of NSW (inland from Ballina) this Sunday 21 April, to lead the Beyond Technique – searching for authenticity masterclass. Beyond Technique is a masterclass that challenges and inspires dancers to look for a new and authentic quality of movement from within. Pitched at disabled and non-disabled artists keen to explore a creative process in an integrated, inclusive environment. This masterclass is suitable for people with some dance experience who are interested in developing an awareness of improvisation techniques to inform the beginnings of creating new work.

(NB: This masterclass is not exclusively for people with and without a disability and is transferable from children to adult aged participants with varying dance and performance experience).

Following on from this once-off workshop on the north coast, I will be working with local disability arts organisations, R.E.D. Inc and Sprung!! Integrated Dance Theatre on a new collaboration called ‘dwell – a triple bill‘. Although registrations have now closed for dwell, expressions of interest are still being accepted for the Beyond Technique masterclass. Hurry, don’t miss out… this closes on Friday.
