11th-14th Jan

This class is supported by the TripHazard programme of residencies link

In this class we will look at different ways of generating material and relating it to other people in the space. You will be given the opportunity to make your own decisions in the moment, and will be encouraged to follow your own interests within given parameters. The aim of the class is to develop a sense of authorship and to enable a greater understanding of one's own practice.

About Seke's research for the TripHazard residency:

Working with a large group of dancers, Seke will be running a choreographic research process divided into three weeks: MASS, MATERIAL and DISTURBANCE.

MASS

What happens when we gather? What governs what we do? Can we make something that stands for all of us? In this week, we will look at group-ness; choruses, flocks, multitudes, polyphonies and collective movements.

MATERIAL

What are performances made of? What materialises and from where? And how do we relate to what comes up? In this week, we will deal with the matter of performance; making things up, breaking things down and re-arranging the furniture.

DISTURBANCE

What bothers us about dance? What disturbs us in the world and what can we disturb through dancing? This week we will shake things up, interfere, interrupt, cut through, make noise, provoke and get silly.
