The class will draw from Typhaine and Virginia current project, Conducting with the Body. Their research looks at live composition and improvisation in performance, drawing from various techniques pertinent to dance and multidisciplinary practice.
Throughout the class we will focus on facilitating and challenging one’s own practice, exploring the sense of collective choice and group negotiation. Dealing with set and improvised material we will build towards our fullest body expression; dancing in solos, duets and group compositions we will look at how relating to other bodies can bring about spontaneous reactions, unexpected moves and a sense of playful challenge.
Typhaine works across Europe as dance maker and performer. She recently worked for Leila McMillan, Vera Tussing, Tara D’arquian and Pablo Bronstein.
Virginia works independently as well as collaboratively with various practitioners. She currently works for balletLorent and is associate artist of The Mostly Everything People.
Together we worked as improvisers for Susan Sentler, Adam James and the London Soundpainting Orchestra. Our recent choreographic research has been developed through residencies, professional classes and workshops at DanceBase, DEOS Teatro Carlo Felice, Yorkshire Dance and Dance City.
Our choreographic work has been presented in Italy, Spain, UK, Finland, Belarus and the Netherlands.
