WELCOME DANIELA OLDS!

June 7, 2017, 3:43 p.m. by Giuliana
We are very happy to welcome Daniela Olds to the Trip teaching community!


Dani will hold the space teaching Rocket Yin every Wednesday from 8pm-9:15pm from the 14th of June

After graduating from London College of Fashion and spending a miserable year as a fashion intern, Daniela discovered the rocket system of yoga.
In awe of its raw power and energy, she ditched her dreams of conquering the fashion industry and embraced a more spiritual way of life.
Dani’s practice combines powerful yoga with her inner rock-chick by spicing things up with an eclectic rock-indie playlist. She often brings different elements of yoga together, uniting the intention, the power of breath and the strong sequencing of asanas.
She aims to create a blast of energy with an injection of fun and light-hearted banter into her teachings. Dani also organises and runs yoga workshops and events in London and around the world… spreading the rocket love!

See you on the yoga pants and rock'n' roll mat!

Welcome Leon London!

Jan. 25, 2017, 11:23 a.m. by Giuliana



We are very happy to announce a great addition to our Friday schedule! Starting from the 10th of February!

Join us an Leon London for frolicking Rocket Yoga sessions every Friday from 8pm-9:15pm!!

Leon's interest in physical culture started at age 11 with martial arts. He then spent the next two decades exploring various arts, massage therapy, movement and was introduced to Hatha yoga in his early twenties.
Whichever discipline Leon was drawn to, he always found his way back to his yoga mat. Leon has studied Kashmir Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Ashtanga and finally the style he calls home, Rocket Yoga. Leon undertook an Ashtanga teacher training with David Swenson and furthered his studies with Rocket Training under the supervision of David Kyle then with Jamie Clarke an Dulce Aguilar.

Leon's sessions will be a rolling flow of inversions, arm balances and floating set to an urban soundtrack! Expect to work hard, sweat hard and surprise yourself along the way!

Leon conducts workshops on the " flying" aspects of Rocket around the country and abroad and can often be seen sweating it on the mat!

Welcome Bridget Luff!

Jan. 14, 2017, 9:18 p.m. by Giuliana
We are delighted to welcome Bridget Luff on our teaching team every Monday and Thursday 5:30pm-6:30pm.

Bridget is a creative and intuitive yoga teacher, devoted to peeling off layers of strain to reveal our essential nature and true wellbeing. Constantly curious, she is always evolving her understanding of the body, breath and awareness. She uses the practice on the mat to return to centre while simultaneously finding space in the body and mind.

Inspired by various teachers and traditions, Bridget crafts a spacious strong sacred flow to nourish and energise you. With her great love of myth and metaphor expect some inspiring themes stitched into the sequence alongside beautiful music, deep real intention and moments of silence.

Welcome Marcus Veda and Welcome to TripSpace Rocket Yoga

Jan. 8, 2017, 1:41 p.m. by Giuliana


We are very happy to Welcome Marcus as part of the TripYoga teaching team! He will be teaching Rocket Yoga & Pranayama every Sunday 4:45pm-6:30pm every Sunday from the 22nd of January!

Marcus’ took the road less-travelled to yoga. Fresh out of Uni, he managed to use his degree in philosophy to justify spending his 20s touring the world as an international DJ, remixing and recording as one half of the Loose Cannons.

Trying every style of class he could get to on every studio intro-offer in London, he finally landed on dynamic vinyasa and more specifically, the Ashtanga-inspired Rocket system, which satisfied his undying urge to fly. Completing his first 200hrs teacher training with the Yoga People in Goa he went on to further train in advanced progressive ashtanga and Yin Yoga, deepening his appreciation of what yoga can be beyond the asanas that drew him in. He is also part of the Dead Yogis Society, a movement to wipe the gloss off the lips of yoga and return to the breath, sweat and rawness of the practice… Letting (e)go.

Rocket yoga (often referred as The Rocket) is a very energetic and invigorating practice.

Linking movement with breath, this quick and dynamic vinyasa flow practice is open and challenging to all levels. You will be encouraged to play with inversions (headstands, handstands etc) and to explore modifications. The Rocket is an attitude not a sequence and Marcus’ teaching embraces it’s joyful rebel spirit; grounding on the mat, flying off it, always experimenting. Breath and bandhas fire the agni in the practice, but above all, it’s a moving meditation. The DJing still plays an integral role, with specially mixed playlists running the tempo and energy of every class.

Some yoga experience recommended.

Jan. 7, 2017, 9:43 a.m. by Giuliana

JUST OFF THE WALL PROGRAMME ANNOUNCED!

Oct. 24, 2016, 2:10 p.m. by Giuliana
Across the next 5 months (Nov-Apr) we have invited 4 visual artists to inhabit the walls of arch 340.

Each artist will preview launch on Thursdays and will exhibit for 4 weeks

The artwork is on sale.

Come to enjoy and experience the work of these fresh artistic voices, join us for each preview... and take a month to think which piece you might want to buy!

Holly Vaughan | SIREN
Preview Launch Thursday 24th November 2016
Exhibition Fri 25th Nov- Sun 18th Dec

The images from the unique photolitho print series, ‘’SIREN’’, originally stills, are taken from the film ‘’Siren’s Meeting’’ by Holly Vaughan. ‘’SIREN’’ began with a steel, plaster and latex figure loosely based on the human form. A female model was filmed interacting and communicating through behavior, performance and movement – the fully breathing with the never before breathed. The photolitho process used is able to retain the nature of the previous digital state of the original image. Fragments of detailed pixels lay amongst the various textures and cracks depicted in the ink, integrating two different eras. She believes in working with the strengths and characteristics of her materials with awareness that they have a life of their own, independent of the maker, allowing the work to naturally unfold - the beauty of rest, the ease of breathing, knowing that there is harmony when wholeness is offered.

Jose Gomez | Self-portraits
Preview Launch Thursday 12th January 2017
Exhibition Fri 13th Jan - Sat 4th Feb

Metallic surfaces and reflections have a charming and mysterious quality in the art of self-portraiture. Self-portraiture art is psychological evidence of not always objective reflections of the viewers and their personalities. This series has a spiritual nature and energy to discern the human reaction with the glossy and colourful finish. The illusion of the reflective material almost appearing to be in motion like water, it gives a big visual impact to the wall space; embodying the materiality, light and reflection of infinite space.
With this series of minimal paintings, Jose's aim is to explore and to pleasure our visual organism, based in the interpretation of our appearance, on the scheme of observation that make possible an emotional response.

Elisa Vassena | somethink
Preview Launch Thursday 9th Feb 2017
Exhibition Fri 10th Feb - Sat 4th March

Somethink exhibits are a series of linocut prints, brought together by the use of sharp and clear linear patterns on a bold bed of colour. The imagery are a transposition of drawings taken from old and more recent sketchbooks, weaving in and out of bodies, text and geometry.

Karolina Gordon | Symbol Formations
Preview Launch Thursday 9th March 2017
Exhibition Fri 10th March - Sat 1st April

From intaglio printmaking, Karolina’s work evolved into a 3D format. Small-scale sculptures ‘hide’ in containers, furnished with string and precisely arranged found objects. These collections are delicate mini-worlds to be discovered. Some are injected with illusion of life as they tick, twitch and move.
Inspired by the aesthetics of Joseph Cornell’s boxes, Karolina also draws loosely from ideas in psychoanalytic psychology such as containment, attunement, attachment formation and Object Relations Theory; the idea that early relations are internalised and have an emotional ‘life of their own’. Illustrating these internal relations and tensions in an abstract yet symbolic way is the main preoccupation of Karolina’s work.

Just Off the Wall exhibition series is independently produced by TripSpace Projects and curated by Pam Ceesay

Ann is back from Austin, Tx!

Oct. 5, 2016, 10:25 a.m. by Giuliana
She's had a few months of exploring and deepening her practice and is feeling inspired to get back into the studio with Y'ALL.
She's added yet more training to her tool kit including another Yoga Nidra Qualification- (iRest this time) and a Yin module. Not to mention level 2 Restorative and some brilliant daily practice with Erinn Lewis an inspiring yogini who has helped her evolve her philosophy of teaching the whole of a person! Physical, Subtle body, Mind, Heart and Joy..... Come and find out what we're talking about

Ann has been teaching Creative Vinyasa Flow, Yin, Restorative and Yoga Nidra across London for the past 9 years. Her original teacher training was 500 hours BWY with Danny DeVille.
Since then she has sought out wisdom from many wonderful teachers including Judith Hanson Lasater, Richard Miller and Wendy Haring adding extra texture and depth to this foundation. Her interest in how the body moves is largely influenced by her work in dance, whereas the breathing, asana and esoteric elements stem from her education in Yoga and its rich history of ideas and styles. Ann brings her full heart to class and hopes to teach something you can take off the mat home with you too!

Ann’s classes are a soft style of Vinyasa.
The sequencing is fluid and well thought out, designed to take you on a seamless journey.
Ann loves that yoga speaks to the whole of a person and as such tailors her classes in this way, with pranayama (breathwork), hasta mudra (hands seals) and often gems of traditional philosophy all laced in.
She enjoys offering variations and welcoming students to fit the postures to suit however there is also always an option for a challenge here and there.
Expect a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

W/C 10th of October Ann will teach Mondays 6:45-7:45, Thursdays 6:45-7:45, Saturdays 10:15-11:45

Due to unforeseen circumstance international clown artist Martademarte will no more be able to perform at Summerdance 2016, we are thrilled to invite dance maverics TrashDollys Dance Theatre who will perform Cape Alley at 4pm instead.

Learn more about Cape Alley link

TrashDollys Dance Theatre: Cape Alley

Deep within an unforgiving metropolis, four outsiders find refuge in a long-forgotten backstreet named Cape Alley. As a group they turn Cape Alley into a gritty vaudeville that illuminates in a whirlwind of limbs, rhythmic rituals and playful sparring. The four begin to live on the fringe of delirium, as lines between reality and fantasy start to dissolve they find themselves in an illusory trap of their own making.

Established in 2011, TrashDollys have built an acclaimed portfolio of work that reflects a bold and progressive approach to b-boying and contemporary dance theatre. Using live dance and filmmaking as our primary mediums, we combine breath-taking physicality with imaginative story telling. Our mission is to create work with versatility at its heart, enabling live performance work to be staged in unusual spaces in order to continue building on our appeal to a wider demographic.

Welcome Mischa Varmuza

Aug. 22, 2016, 10:29 a.m. by Giuliana
We are thrilled to announce that from the 7th of September we will be welcoming Mischa Varmuza to our Studio.

Mischa will be taking care of Wednesdays 6:45-7:45pm link .

Yoga forms the framework of Mischa's life. It encouraged her to find her true path with an open heart. It has brought her strength, flexibility and discipline both on and off the mat whilst constantly reminding her to stay present, open and compassionate. To find space between thoughts and actions, to look for lightness in the dark moments and get up smiling if she falls. Teaching has given Mischa an avenue to share her devotion to yoga and offer guidance for others to experience the practice for themselves.

Mischa trained under the expert eye of Claire Missingham. Following her teacher training, she spent 6 months in India immersed in the path of bhakti (devotional) yoga study, teaching and travel; experiences which have deeply influenced her personal practice and teaching approach. She is dedicated to continuing her study, practice and professional development and attends classes, training and workshops in the UK and abroad with leading teachers. She is eternally grateful to each an every one of her teachers.

Mischa is also a fully trained naturopath, nutritional therapist, iridologist and reiki practitioner..

Welcome to Rachel Perry!

July 9, 2016, 3:42 p.m. by Giuliana
We are absolutely delighted to welcome Rachel Perry amongst the TripYoga teachers!

She will be teaching Wednesdays 6:45-7:45

Rachel began practising Yoga when she was a professional dancer, it wasn’t long until the ‘fling’ became a relationship. After some years of daily practise she decided to turn my passion into my profession.

She completed an intensive 200 hour vinyasa flow yoga teacher training with Yoga London in 2011 and then went on to complete my advanced studies with that same school. At present she am an experienced 500 hour yoga teacher and massage therapist.
Her vinyasa flow yoga classes are light hearted, energetic alignment focussed, playful yet challenging, expect to come away from class felling uplifted, aligned and Nourished!

As her exploration of the asanas (yoga postures) deepens she have become interested in the power of restorative yoga which is a much softer and quieter practise. She decided to dive into another teacher training. She completed an intensive restorative yoga teacher training with Anna Ashby in 2012.

Her restorative yoga classes support feelings of ease, release and nourishment. You may find that doing a little can leave a big impression.

Most recently Rachel completed an intensive pregnancy yoga teacher training with uma Dinsmore-Tuli and Lisa White.

In 2014 Rachel began her study of holistic massage therapy with Bodyology London and after a year of vigorous training and practise she qualified with the governing body MTI. Since then Rachel has been studying Myofascial release techniques and Rieki healing.

The study and practise of holistic massage therapy has helped increase her understanding of the human body and its inner workings. Rachel endeavours to intertwine the stress reducing qualities of both massage and yoga to as many people as possible!

FOCUS OF THE MONTH OF JULY & GARUDA MUDRA

July 3, 2016, 10:12 p.m. by Giuliana
FOCUS OF THE MONTH OF JULY: SPREAD YOUR WINGS

July is a month with long days which makes being physically active and mentally focused a little easier. Garuda the mythical bird represents speed, and martial prowess. So with this as our focus of the month perhaps it could inspire a new goal or challenge that you had always thought you might like to achieve. Maybe an asana that is tricky for you or deserves some tapas (application) to be perfected. Or maybe it's taking up something completely new that has always appealed as a healthy challenge. Our July challenge to you is to believe that it is possible. Aim high like an eagle. What better time than now....?

GARUDA MUDRA

Garuda is a large bird, often equated with an eagle. Large birds' wingspan & strength allows them to flow with the wind. Garuda mudra helps balance the body & it's energy on both sides.

Addressing the 193-member UN General Assembly in United Nations.

Mudra of the month of June

June 7, 2016, 10:34 p.m. by Giuliana
LOTUS MUDRA: a beautiful mudra layered with meaning.


It opens the heart chakra and is also a symbol of purity. The lotus blooms even growing from the muddy bottom or dirty water, reminding us that beauty and enlightenment can emerge from darkness.
While the lotus sits on the surface of the pond, opening to the sun, it is firmly anchored to the ground by its roots. As the lotus does, remaining grounded allows us to open our hearts to the light, and enlightenment.

To Do:
Sit quietly take the mudra in front of your heart, close your eyes and in your minds eye watch you intention unfold, blossom and manifest.

Looking FW to hosting Claudia Catarzi and our 2nd performance at the ICI of Italian Art House Choreography

April 5, 2016, 9:28 p.m. by Giuliana
In collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute, TripSpace curates a mini dance programme featuring performances by three of the most exciting emerging Italian contemporary dance makers: Andrea Costanzo Martini, Claudia Catarzi, Caterina Basso

Each performance will be followed by a post-show talk giving interpretative keys for each artist’s work and moderated by John Ashford.

PLEASE NOTE: THESE PERFORMANCES TAKE PLACE AT THE ITALIAN CULTURAL INSTITUTE link

-------------------------------------------------- FRIDAY 15TH APRIL | 7PM | ICI --------------------------------------------

Claudia Catarzi 40.000 centimetri quadrati

Choreography and performance Claudia Catarzi
Lighting design Massimiliano Calvetti
Production Company Blu  with the support  of  MiBac and  Tuscany Region selected for “Visionari/Kilowatt festival 2014” and Vetrina XL 2015 the video promo is shortlisted at "IDILL/Charleroi danses”

One body, reduced to the essential, brings itself to the limited space of the stage. Catarzi starts from the desire to rediscover what only the body can discover. Performed on a sound board created in collaboration with Massimiliano Calvetti, 40.000 centimetri quadrati allows constriction to bring adaptation and ideas to reside in movement itself, with its unconditional honesty.

"Everything is reduced to the essential in this solo which lasts just twenty-five minutes, but the accuracy of the execution, and the  cleanliness of the movements are such that the viewer is emotionally involved  from the very beginning."
Graziano Graziani, Paese Sera/La voce di Roma, 3.07.2014

BIOGRAPHIES

Asana of The Week Bakasana - Crane/Crow Pose

March 25, 2016, 10:32 a.m. by Giuliana


This month it's been all about balance at TripYoga.
Vishnu 'The Preserver' has inspired us to embrace both the soft (sukha) and the strong (sthira).
In our Asana we cultivate a fine tuned physicality that is both strong and receptive.
Anina beautifully demonstrates this balancing act with Bakasana here.
Softly hovering whilst deeply grounded and steady.
Effort and Grace combined.

Happy March everyone!

ASANA OF THE WEEK: Anantasana Reclining Pose

March 24, 2016, 2:40 p.m. by Giuliana
Dedicated to Vishnu In most images of Vishnu he is reclining on golden, snake like chaise longue- in a seemingly relaxed and balanced state.  Perfectly depicting his role as 'The Preserver', keeping equilibrium in the universe. This Asana is quite simple to get into but requires a level of concentration to stay in.  Have a go- as soon as the mind wonders its quite normal that the balance slightly goes and you have to reset.  A great posture to play with when looking for inner focus and steady balance. TripSpace Projects Trip Kitchen & Bar Thank you to Kerry for demonstrating!

Anna is working on adding a splash of colour to our new kitchen: we are steering the kitchen's ship towards a more relaxed and vibrant environment.

ASANA of THE WEEK: ANJANEYASANA

Dec. 16, 2015, 10:50 p.m. by Giuliana
Anjaneya: Son of Anjani, Asana: Posture/Seat

This is in reference to the monkey lord Hanuman who's mother was Anjani.
This is also excellent preparation for Hanumanasana as it gets into the hip flexors. Preparing the body for the 'giant leap' that the splits is!
Another common name for this posture is Crescent Moon because of its sweeping crescent like lines and cool/lunar intensity.

To Celebrate the Kitchen's change of direction towards plant based wholesomeness....

Dec. 9, 2015, 10:03 p.m. by Giuliana
As already announced: from January 2016 we are taking over the kitchen in arch 340.

The desire is to create an experience that is tasty, delicious and complimentary to our yoga and dance studio. We'll be cooking up some fantastic new ideas using locally sourced, fresh organic food, great drinks and a relaxed vibe.
Expect: Wholesome food & cheeky cocktails: locally sourced, consciously produced, made with gratitude and a worldly twist!...

...Here is a quick recipe suggested by one of our kitchen creative collaborators: Nina Deely:

Bircher muesli

Start your day on a good note with calming Bircher muesli.
Soak some raisins in a little apple juice, grate an apple in, add some chopped almonds, half a cup of oats and enough almond milk to cover.
Allow to sit overnight.
In the morning top with yoghurt, tahini, crunchy seeds and spirulina.

Enjoy!

Contact Improvisation session: cancelled

frown emoticon

Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

ASANA OF THE WEEK: Garudasana

Dec. 7, 2015, 11:36 p.m. by Giuliana
Garuda: Mythical Bird, Asana: Seat/Posture

This is the Eagle that Lord Vishnu has as his vehicle in hindu mythology.

This asana requires a level of concentration which is reminiscent of a bird of prey watching and waiting. Seeing everything.
We can find a similar state of clarity in the mind when this one pointedness of attention emerges through the posture work.

We refer to this as Dharana. link
In this instance: Giuliana demonstrates Garuda!

MUDRA OF THE MONTH: Bhairavi and Bhairava Hasta Mudra

Dec. 1, 2015, 12:07 p.m. by Giuliana
Bhairavi is a name for Shiva and means 'terrifying' or 'fierce'.
Fiercely warding away suffering.
It is a calming Mudra which brings peace and balance as it invites us to embrace our duality.
The two variations of this mudra are representative of Shiva/Shakti, the Male and Female forms of energy.
When the right hand is placed on top it is the Shiva aspect, Bhairava. When the left is on top it is Bhairavi, the Shakti aspect.
Placing the hands together harmonises the right and left sides of our body and the two energies Male and Female, ida and pingala.

Have a go and see if you can feel a harmony in the body!

ASANA OF THE WEEK: Sirsasana II

Nov. 24, 2015, 11:05 p.m. by Giuliana
Sirsa: Head, Asana:Seat/Posture: otherwise known as Tripod Headstand.

TIPS

-Do plenty of work on strengthening the shoulders and core before attempting this pose and always start out with a teacher present.
-Big Tip! Make sure your two hands and the crown of your head make a triangle constellation, NOT a line. You should be able to see your hands in your periphery.
-Once you have set up the base triangle have a go at curling one leg in, knee bent and resting on top of the arm. Try the other side and if you feel steady try both.
-Once the legs are in then draw the thighs a little closer and play slowly with unfurling the legs upwards.

Contraindications:
Neck Issues
High or low blood pressure/heart problems
Glaucoma
Menstruation
Pregnancy

ASANA of the week: VIRABHADRASANA II

Nov. 16, 2015, 10:02 p.m. by Giuliana
Virabhadra: Warrior Friend
Asana: Posture/Seat.

Here is the second Warrior posture in the series of 3.
Named after the mythical warrior created by Shiva and thrown on to the earth.
This posture should inspire us to harness the qualities of our inner warrior. Strong and precise but with a soft, gentle receptiveness pervading throughout.

Thanks Nick for demonstrating!!

ASANA of the week: MATSYASANA

Nov. 9, 2015, 5:14 p.m. by Giuliana
Matsya: Fish, Asana: Posture/Seat
This posture takes its name from the Fish Lord Matsya- the first avatar of ten taken by the Hindu god Vishnu. The myth goes that Matsya comes to earth to help man in the wake of a great flood, building a ship and placing it atop a mountain.

Thank you for the demonstration Kirsten! Photo bombed by Sammy..

Asana of THE WEEK: VIRABHADRASANA I

Nov. 2, 2015, 5:22 p.m. by Giuliana
Virabhadra: Warrior friend, Asana: Seat/posture

Did you know that Virabhadra was a fierce warrior thrown down onto earth by Shiva?
The mythology goes that he pulled out one of of his dreadlocks and beat it into the ground, giving rise to a powerful Warrior.
Shiva named this warrior Virabhadra.
Vira (hero) / Bhadra (friend).

Thank you to Montse, one of three Directors of TripSpace, for the demonstration!

TripSpace will host 6 London-based dance artists over the course of the 7 months, each of whom will be in residence for a total of 3 weeks, teaching in the morning and researching new choreographic ideas in the afternoon.

The project will culminate in a night of performance on the 28th of May.

Simonetta Alessandri
Amy Bell

MARIA FONSECA

Maria's approach to dance has been greatly influenced by Flying Low Technique, Capoeira and active meditations. Since graduating Maria has worked with a great variety of artists, such as Nuno Silva, Jean Abreu Dance, Protein Dance, John Ross, Rizzle Kicks, Adidas/ Ivan Blackstock, BBC2 and Jack Murphey, among others. Maria choreographed 'Red Tears' for Resolution 2014 at The Place.

LEWIS WILKINS

A highly physical practice which centres around improving efficiency and fluidity when moving in and out of the floor. We will explore organisation of weight and the generation of centrifugal energy in order to challenge coordination, and increase dynamic potential. There will be some strength and skill based inversion training. This is in preparation for movement sequences rooted around vocabulary from breaking and capoeira.

Lewis has worked with Tom Dale, James Wilton, John Ross, 2Faced, Jose Agudo and New Adventures. He has also performed in new creations with Jo Stromgren, Damien Jalet, Jorge Crecis, and Victor Quijada as a member of Scottish Dance Theatre.

TripSpace Programming Call Out

TripSpace Projects are embarking a new and exciting two day festival in collaboration with the Hayward Gallery as an offsite performance strand to Haywards's autumn exhibition Mirrorcity: London Artists of Fiction and Reality.
The collaboration will culminate in TripSpace curating a two day (22nd - 23rd November, 2014) durational exhibition of performance that inhabits the different spaces of TripSpace's venue. The work will explore questions such as What is real? What are the spaces in between? Where is art supposed to fit? Where is the audience supposed to fit?

What are we looking for?

We are looking for performance work that challenges perception, observation and how the body interacts with space. Pieces that explore notions about the real and "in between spaces" that could be places and reworked for the TripSpace spaces. These can take the form of performance, live art, technology, instant composition and spontaneous choreography.

The selected works will coexist as overlapping events, giving the audience opportunities to choose where to give their attention, and thereby becoming part of the work itself.

Date: 22nd and 23rd November
Venue: TripSpace, Haggerston

Flying Low and Passing Through Intensive

Nov. 24, 2013, 1:15 p.m. by Giuliana

TripSpace starts the new year by shaking off January's grit from the "Christmas Body"



Flying Low and Passing Through intensive with Leila McMillan

When: 6th-10th Jan 2014

Time: Mon-Thur 10:30am-16:00pm
Fri: 11:30am-18:00pm

Price: £135/£120 conc
EARLY BIRDS: £120/£105 conc
morning class only: £4.50

Booking required, email: montse@tripspace.co.uk

Leila has worked extensively with David Zambrano as a performer, assistant and tour manager. She is one of 50 artists chosen to be a part of 50 days of Flying Low and Passing Through in Costa Rica in 2010 certifying her in the techniques.

Class:

The morning class will fuse the original principles of Flying Low (created by David Zambrano) with Leila’s further development of the technique. Flying Low focuses on the dancers relationship with the floor. We will dissolve the hard floor into a lush swimming pool by transforming our bodies into water. We will move in and out of the floor efficiently with speed without forgetting any part of our body. We will dive, roll, slide, gather and send, we will Fly Low.

Workshop:

The workshop will focus on Passing Through, an improvisation technique working with the philosophy that movement needs no leader in creation. Specifically working with adaptation, interconnecting with everyone at all times, transforming the environment of the dance, playing with expansion and cohesion. We will be soft, wild and powerfully spontaneous. We work to see the room full of infinite pathways passing through the walls, the floor and the bodies. We will play with the existence of solo dancers within group composition. We will find the place where Flying Low meets Passing Through. Thus together we will create a wild spontaneous composition.

Leila's Bio

Leila McMillan is an International choreographer, dance artist and teacher currently based in London. She completed a BA in Contemporary Dance and MA in Performance at Trinity Laban and was a member of Transitions Dance Company in 2004. She’s worked extensively with David Zambrano since 2008 as a student, performer, assistant and tour manager of Soul Project in Senegal, West Africa, in 2010. She was one of 50 artists chosen to be a part of 50 days of Flying Low and Passing Through in Costa Rica in 2010 certifying her in the techniques. She’s founding member of 50collective, internationally presenting Passing Through. She’s performed for Layla Rosa, Lea Anderson, David Zambrano, Crystal Pite, Thomas Lehmen, Jasmina Krizaj and Nina Fajdiga; has made work for Upswing, Kinetika, Olympic Torch and Brave Spark Media; has been commissioned multiple times by East London Dance and is associate choreographer with Joseph Mercier and PanicLab.

2nd-5th December Gaby Agis teaches pro-class

Skinner Releasing Technique (SRT) is a pioneering approach to dance, movement and creative process that has evolved from the simple principle that when we are releasing physical tension, we can move with greater freedom, power and articulation.

info: link

9th-12th of December Marina Collard and Lauren Potter teach Pro Class

The class begins with a slow exploration of the breath, the cavities in the body and the fluidity of the motion of the breath. We pay attention to the midline leading to finding connection through the whole skeletal system, connective tissue system and the skin. In bringing the whole body into a state of awareness, we continue this exploration in moving. The class has a clear sense of progression, encouraging the dancer to listen to their own sense of weight in the moment of moving and to be playful with their musicality.

6th-10th of January: Leila McMillan: Flying Low and Passing Through intensive

It is possible to attend only professional class ( £4.50) if you are not able to attend the whole workshop.

Open Space: shared work space for independent makers

Sept. 9, 2013, 12:48 p.m. by Giuliana
Hello independent makers and creators!
The writing below is dedicated to you.

One of TripSpace's concerns is how to facilitate independent makers to develop their practice and encourage their crafting yet remaining an independent organization ourselves. This basically comes down to financial concerns. One of the ways we thought we could tackle this is by creating Open Space. Lets see if it works.

Open Space

Open Space is for Solo Artists or Companies of two.

Its a time slot between 10:30am-1:30pm where artists can share the studio with like minded artists ( a bit like: rent a desk in a shared office) in order to practice/ rehearse/ create/ initiate ideas. The studio is 12mx8.50m with a sprung floor/ changing facilities and a PA system.

There will be a max of 5 companies at a time, this means there will be between 5-10 people in studio working in 5 spaces. Companies of two will use "one space".

The studio will be open plan so yes you are sharing, but we hope that contemporarily this will be a source of inspiration and an energiser ( if you work solo it is quite hard to be alone in studio!!).

We believe that this might be a good way to initiate ideas, or to strum up material for applications.

The price for 3 hour slot for solo artists is £10 ( £3.30 an hour)
The price for 3 hour slot for companies of two is £15 ( £2.50 an hour)

Open Space happens in the last week of each month.

If you are interested please book in advance as there are only 5 slots available per day.

Contact giuliana@tripspace.co.uk
If you know someone who might be interested: share the knowledge.

TripSpace will be hosting workshops, professional class and opportunities for artistic development and creation.
At the moment the pro-classes are not regular, they happen depending on availability and on who is in residency in the studio.
Sometimes they might be very physical and require the level and technique of professionally trained dancers , other times they might be open to physical performers from different artistic backgrounds.

From the 16th-20th of September Leila Mcmillan http://www.leilamcmillan.com/ will be teaching flying low from 10:30-12:00.
This class is for professional dancers or professional actors with a very strong experience in movement and physical work.

TripSpace will also be hosting Open Space, scheduled weeks where independent artists making their own work can share space to create and develop their practice and still keep it affordable.
