This workshop combines skills and applications of somatic researches that include release techniques and body mind practices such as Body-Mind Centering® systems and patterns of development and evolution, embodiments of Contact Improvisation, and tunings of somatic approaches within solo, duet (strong emphasis on partnering) and ensemble dancing. The interest and focus is in the very physical, sensorial and imaginative, and in discovering new challenges and risks within our movement – of both body and mind – towards improvisational and compositional processes.

Hebden Bridge Arts Festival

A weekend of performances: Words and Actions from Jonathan Burrows, Katye Coe, Francesca and Matteo Fargion, Wendy Houstoun, Charlie Morrissey

Double Bill

What’s Not There
Charlie Morrissey

 

This performance plays with what we see, what we don’t see; truth, lies; belief and disbelief. It tells a story of overlapping performances in numerous spaces both real and imagined creating a world all of it’s own along the way.

“Standout wit and intelligence. Absurd and wonderful” The British Theatre Guide

And…

Music For Lectures/She Dancing
Katye Coe with music by Jonathan Burrows, Francesca Fargion and Matteo Fargion

Music For Lectures invites a series of existing talks on performance to be reimagined in the context of a rock band, which supports, counterpoints and at times overwhelms the speaker.

She Dancing is a talk by Katye Coe spoken after 30 minutes of dancing. It exposes the dancer’s experience as one where rich information is often held in silence.

'There's a beguiling mix of the scholarly, the quizzical and the righteously indignant that is unique to Fargion and Burrows...the concentration of their work demonstrates how much expressive power even a small gesture, a tiny variation of tone or rhythm, can possess.' The Guardian London

Sunday 30th June, 2pm

Hell Hath No Fury
Wendy Houstoun

In the beginning was the word, but soon after that things got complicated.
Wendy Houstoun is in the pulpit.
Songs may be sung, Dances may be done and Transformations may take place. The church of the internet is among us.
Come and help spread the word.

‘A maverick to the tip of her toes, [Houstoun] seems to reinvent herself for each new work…it’s daringly brilliant.’ The Independent

Sunday 30th June, 7.30pm

Double-Bill

Rewriting
Jonathan Burrows

Rewriting is the first full-length solo made and performed by Jonathan Burrows.

He rewrites the choreography from a lost performance of his which has never been seen, while re-examining ideas from A Choreographers’ Handbook which he wrote ten years ago. The piece builds a slow map of what choreography may or may not be, in turns doubting and celebratory.

"If Einstein ever pondered on dance, the dance in question would have looked something like the work of Jonathan Burrows." The Guardian

And...

The Solo Piece
Matteo Fargion

Matteo Fargion’s new translation of Morton Feldman’s score For John Cage, which Jonathan Burrows and he borrowed to make their award winning duo performance Both Sitting Duet in 2002. This time it’s just Matteo man on stage, waiving his arms. And this more lonely counterpoint is now between his voice and the meaningless gestures that he makes.

'There are few performers who can hold an audience captive like this double act… the timing of every note, shrug, laugh and gesture is awesome. Five stars.'
The Guardian, London

Kinship Workshop

To Book - Follow this link:
https://kinshipworkshop.wordpress.com/hebden-bridge-2019/
Approximate schedule: 10am-5pm each day with optional evening meet-ups
Accommodation: local guest houses, bed & breakfasts, hostels, camping

Please bring a packed lunch each day as there are very limited options close to the Chapel and we may also eat up on the hills.

Kinship Workshops take participants into rural landscapes to spend time in nature. The focus of the work is how somatic and embodied experiencing can facilitate change in the way we relate to nature, landscapes and other animals.

Kinship Workshops focus on the resourcing of, and investment in our relationship to other forms of life including landscape, plants and animals. This can inspire active responses to concerns around environment, wildlife decline, consumption and climate change. This is done through body and movement practices that take place both indoors and outdoors.

Most workshops are residential – taking place in rural or wild landscapes. Each day starts with a physical warm-up, a movement session and exercises to tune the senses before heading out into landscapes that have less human intervention and structure to share space with wild and/or free-roaming animals, and plant-life.

Cooking and domestic tasks are shared communally. Evening activities may include discussion and sharings.

Dance

£75 All 3-days or £60 for Saturday and Sunday only (The 16th is an optional opportunity to meet for a few hours prior to the main workshop on Saturday and Sunday)

A three-day Lab focussed on the creation of ideas and work.

I see these days as more a laboratory rather than a workshop with the emphasis on the meeting, discussions and collisions of people.

I have spent a lot of my life passing on tried and tested ideas and I want to use the freedom of this amazing space and place to open up a new way of working.

I will lead a movement session each morning and then open up the day by setting tasks and forming ideas and setting time frames for making and responding.

I would love this Lab to include musicians, dancers, writers, painters, architects, digital artists, stone masons, counsellors, film makers, walkers, geographers, map makers - anyone who is interested in forming and joining one idea to another.

The weekend will begin with an optional pre – meet on Friday 16thfrom 3 to 7pm for those that can make it.

Then the Lab will officially start on the Saturday morning and run through to Sunday. The timings for the Saturday and the Sunday are from 11am to 6pm.

Given the nature of the work, a commitment to attending both Saturday and Sunday for this Lab is required. 

Wendy Houstoun

Wendy Houstoun is a movement/theatre artist who remains committed to finding new forms to address her themes. Over the years, her work has developed a uniquely distinctive style that combines movement with text, and meaning with humour. Since 1980, Wendy has worked extensively as a solo performer, and in collaboration with companies and artists whose work challenges, enriches, and extends the boundaries of, dance and theatre. Her work with DV8 Physical Theatre, Tim Etchells and Forced Entertainment, film-maker David Hinton, Jonathan Burrows, Nigel Charnock, performance artist Rose English, Gloria Theatre, Lumiere and Son Theatre Company and Ludus Dance Company has explored large and small stages, specific sites, film and installation.

Wendy’s solo pieces, Haunted, Daunted and Flaunted, Happy Hour (commissioned by Chisenhale Dance Space), and The 48 Almost Love Lyrics have all toured Europe. She has made two films, Touched and Diary of a Dancer for BBC with David Hinton. Site-specific commissions include Mind the Gap for the South Bank Centre, Reverse Effect for Cultural Industry, and Take Me to the River for the South Bank and Greenwich & Docklands Festival. Wendy is an artist who experiments with ideas in her work, but keeps her audience very much in mind. While her work challenges preconceptions about movement, she communicates clearly and humorously about our culture.

 

 

Edge for Action // Tuning Scores with Karen Nelson

Tickets: £90 Email: robdothopper@aol.co.uk

Dance

5th-7th April 2019 11am-6pm £90 (£45 deposit to secure place)- to book, email Rob - robdothopper@aol.co.uk

Tuning Scores (originated by Lisa Nelson) is a dance practice that unveils sense desires as motivators; movement as collateral choreography; time as music and rhythm; space as palette and environment.

Tuning promotes collaboration between individuals willing to engage, play, and occupy shared space. A collaborative communication process, Tuning proposes ensemble creation where each participant embodies their unique responsibility for action/non-action. Friction between consorting images provides feedback for the groups’ collective learning, discovering, inventing. Relying on our life-long underlying movement skills— like CI experience or expressions such as singing, spoken word, object puppeteering, space design— we will use our resources to serve and tune the images revealed as we improvise.

Class will include rigorous sensory warm-ups, physicalizing thru CI, and playing with a cluster of scores to grow edges.

Karen Nelson continues to be a cornerstone of dance improvisation in the US’ Pacific Northwest and abroad. A long-time mutator of the form Contact Improvisation (CI), she co-founded mixed-ability experiments Dance Ability and Diverse Dance Research Retreat while later joining Lisa Nelson/ Image Lab’s developing of Tuning Scores for performance. She explores dance history and currency that centers intersections of practitioner experience and interrogates whiteness within her own embodiment and larger community, often collaborating with artists around the world. Her teaching approach brings classic origins of CI and Tuning through exercises, images, practice and discussion along with a view towards engendering individual possession and evolution of the forms through one’s own experience.

A creation process towards real time performance
For Dancers / /Actors/ Performance artists

“Tell the brain to tell the mind to shut up — body obey me”

I guide performers through physical exercises that highlight how the eyes and ears affect movement choices both for the performer and for the live public, alongside lecture materials from my research The developmental Brain - “Why we learn to walk”.

“There is a difference between seeing, looking and watching and a difference between hearing and listening. An artist can choose if they wish for a public to watch or to see — to hear or to listen.
I choose for the public to see and listen, and do my best to gather a crowd in that quest. It doesn’t always work and it is never 100% of the public. But because I choose it, who I am as an artist is clarified.

Are you interested in a public watching or looking at your body? Or do you want the public to be reminded that they have a body?”

I have invented games to encourage a “tight to loose” process integrating emotions, feelings and intuition. This work extends towards improvisation sessions with set time frames, fictional front with the option to choose pause, flow or exit. Each of these choices have an in depth study for how to place real time composition in a performance platform.

The aim and objective of my workshops is to ask artists to question and articulate within their practice “what is your relationship to public”?

I place “body” as the glue for integrating writing, music and object.

"Katie Duck is the Zorba the Greek of improvisation: earthy, feeling every mode of sensuality, preposterous, irresistible, polymorphously perverse. Watching her dance is like watching her body think. She is responsive to every situation and obviously enjoys getting into trouble." Dance Magazine

Katie Duck Bio

I am a director/performer/teacher who has been working professionally since 1976. I take a microscopic study for the role improvisation plays in real time composition integrating music, movement, object and writing. Improvisation, in my performances, is not the antithesis of choreography or composition; it is how I make my art work out of practice both in the studio setting and the newness of real time improvised performance. My performances are about the experience of being there, you are participating in the event and thus, in a sense, the work”. My practice is a reflection of what I believe art in the theatre can only be; live.

This workshop explores solos and duets and is informed by Charlie and Scott’s own movement investigations.

Their approach is influenced by their shared experience of working with contact improvisation, Steve Paxton’s Material for the Spine, and Lisa Nelson’s Tuning Scores.

The workshop will employ skeletal imaging and movement, with particular attention given to the pelvis as root, and the spine as a limb, for integrating spherically and dimensionally into space.

Anatomical explorations with their root in Material for the Spine will be re-imagined and explored in relation to working with another body/bodies and space.

The work will range from detailed anatomical explorations through to full-bodied movement in space, in solo, duet and group explorations.

Journeys into the landscape of body and imagination!

This workshop will explore different resources within the body and space for generating movement and material while at times using voice, touch and spoken word.

This is for anyone interested in improvising and engaging in various creative processes that explore communication and conversations beyond the verbal but at times inclusive of it.

We will explore and develop our sense-ability skills, receiving information, noticing and responding- giving attention to detail in order to open and expand the ways we perceive things- delving into the ideas of 'seeing' beyond sight, 'listening' beyond the auditory and being open to what is 'moving us'.

Sara is inspired by creating the conditions and space that helps to liberate us in the dance experience and in our body-embracing what is present as being enough.

About Sara…
Sara's professional dance journey started out when she graduated with a BA (Hons) Dance 15 years ago.She has performed at -Yorkshire Dance Center, Bretton Hall Sculpture park, The Roundhouse-London, Contact Theater & The Green Room-Manchester, Hebden Bridge Arts Festival, Forgotten Land- India. Other projects have included Festivals, Churches, Cathedrals, Moor lands, Cliffs and Mills. She teaches in different contexts such as schools, the community, health and well being settings . Her dance life as it was got interrupted for several years when her health took a turn for the worse and she found herself dealing with paralysis, being disabled and in a lot of pain. This lead her on a path of recovery, redirecting her life, resulting in her engaging and training in integrated therapies and other worldly dance and healing traditions and practices. She then completed her Masters of the Arts: Dance and Somatic Well- Being -connections to the living body. All of this contributed to reinventing herself as a dancer and culminates in the multi- disciplined, multi-faceted practices and approaches which she teachers in now.

Exploring Flying Low and Passing Through techniques
2-Day Workshop with Ben McEwen

Start date: August 25, 2018

End date: August 26, 2018

Time: 11am - 6pm daily

Tickets: £60 robdothopper@aol.co.uk

Dance

In the mornings we'll look at some principles of floorwork, through the material of Flying Low. FL is a technique initiated by David Zambrano that uses simple movement patterns and principles (such as spiralling and alternating between expansion and cohesion) to dance our whole selves in, out and along the floor with safety, speed, efficiency... and pleasure! We'll take a detailed look at the movements, breaking them down to allow everyone to find a way though the material that works for them, before putting it all back together for some full-bodied dancing!

Continuing the thread from the morning, afternoons will be group improvisation, influenced by David Zambrano's Passing Through structure. We'll rigorously and playfully look at how to place our pathways, phrases and movements in relation to others' in space. Starting from walking and running patterns, with tools for opening our attention and sharpening our decision making. We'll then bring this work into our dancing, with the overarching attitude that generating movement is not the end point of improvisation, but rather dancing that is relevant to the situation and communicative to all participants and audience.

For the floorwork I highly recommend long trousers (within reason!) and covered shoulders.
Any question please do ask! robdothopper@aol.co.uk

Ben graduated from TrinityLaban before going on to complete the training cycle at P.A.R.T.S., where he had his first opportunity to study with David Zambrano, the initiator of Flying Low. Now he regularly works as a performer and researcher for, among others; Charlotte Spencer Projects, Vera Tussing and Francesco Scavetta/Wee, alongside teaching at conservatoires, universities and professional classes throughout Europe. He also practices Aikido at Tetsushinkan/MovingEast and enjoys wandering amongst mountains and barefoot running.
