WOULD YOU LIKE A CHANCE TO PERFORM WITH STRIKING ATTITUDES?
Following upon our success of Each For All: All For Each (our promenade piece in collaboration with poet Patrick Jones), we are pleased to be able to offer dancers in the community a chance to perform.
We will be performing as part of Gwanwyn Festival’s day for older dancers, taking place at the Sherman Theatre on 18th May.
NO PREVIOUS DANCE EXPERIENCE NECESSARY. OPEN TO ALL ABOVE THE AGE OF 40.
We have a number of options linked to this community project for you:
1. A weekend workshop with Catherine Young
2. Six creative sessions with Caroline Lamb and Janet Fieldsend
3. Rehearsals for the May 18th performance
1. A WEEKEND WORKSHOP WITH CATHERINE YOUNG
Catherine Young is the dance officer with Ceredigion based at Theatre Felinfach. She is experienced in working with older dancers and runs sessions for a group at Felinfach.
Catherine is currently working on a project with students at Laban in London. Striking Attitudes has an excellent ongoing connection with Catherine including commissioning her to create some of the choreographic material for Once Upon A Time In The Dark, Dark Woodwhich we performed in Cardiff, Swansea and Ceredigion in April and May 2013.
The weekend workshop with Catherine Young will take place at Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff on 1st and 2nd March from 10:30am-4:30pm both days. Some material may be created during this weekend that will be included in the performance at the Sherman Theatre on 18th May.
2. SIX CREATIVE SESSIONS WITH CAROLINE LAMB AND JANET FIELDSEND
These six sessions with Caroline and Janet will investigate and develop new ideas and material. It will be a chance to explore and really get creative again.
These sessions will take place at Chapter Arts Centre every Wednesday from 12th March to 16th April from 6:45pm-8:45pm.
3. REHEARSALS FOR THE MAY 18th PERFORMANCE
Four creative sessions will finalise material and focus on rehearsing for the Gwanwyn event at the Sherman Theatre.
These four sessions will take place at Chapter Arts Centre on Wednesday 30th April, Wednesday 7th May, Wednesday 14th May and Thursday 15th May from 6:45pm-8:45pm.
These rehearsals will culminate in the performance on Sunday 18th May at the Sherman Theatre. Some availability may be needed on Saturday 17th Mary for a technical rehearsal at the Sherman.
