FIRST PART

JUDITH MEISTER | Meanwhile | 10:55 min

The experimental documentary Meanwhile explores in a sensitive and experimental way how the city and its public spaces change during the restrictions. How the daily rhythms and movements change when we are locked up in apartments and the feeling of loneliness takes over.

NICOLA HEPP KAIDE GONZALEZ | reset | 2:14 min

A film created during the covid19 pandemic, connecting to the emotions that we are dealing with at this time. Confinement and distress and finding ways of leaving that behind. Starting afresh with renewed hope. Directed remotely and shot on location, following the guidelines in The Netherlands.

camera: Lisa de Faria
music: Freerk Lenselink
directed and edited by Nicola Hepp


EMILY ROBINSON | Seedlings of Time | 7:14 mins

I’m fascinated as I watch my father gardening; it’s like seeing a parent care for their young. In watching him, I crave too to be cared for. To be held and made strong whilst offering my arms to him in return. Through the precious allowance of time, explorations and re-introductions unfold.

Created and performed by: Emily Robinson and Glyn Robinson
Music and Composition: Alex Paton
Mentored by: Kimberley Harvey
Funded by: Groundwork Pro Cardiff and Arts Council Wales


Emily Robinson is an independent dance artist and choreographer based across both London and South Wales. She adopts both contemporary and contact improvisation methods to mediate often personal and political themes. Emily has created work for a wide range of settings whilst always aiming to keep social engagement and interaction at her works core.

ALEJANDRO FERREIRA OLIVARES | #postbinary | 2:39 min

About #postbinary: Two overlapped dancing bodies cope with their personal and shared binary qualities [old-young, woman-man, up-down, etc.], allowing those endpoints to touch each other.
This is the point where the hybrid blending takes place and a new otherness comes alive virtually. This otherness is BI and NOR; neither this nor that.

Original Music - Alex Soprano
Performance: Elizabeth Rodríguez Le Boulengé
Edition: Alejandro Ferreira Olivares


Alejandro is a chilean performer, music producer and [accidentally] video maker. He loves pop culture, dance, plants and sea animals, particularly jellyfish. He also likes the film <> and random things such as meeting new friends on Twitch.
He dreams about becoming a robot one day.

KATIE BEARD, NAOMI TURNER, LIV LOCKWOOD | Scapelands | 4:00 min

Scapelands explores our primal connections with nature and the effect of urban living on the human mind. With countries in lockdown due to the current global pandemic, the psychological impact of our physical environments is being felt more significantly across the world than ever before. Scapelands was commissioned by BBC Arts and Arts Council England as part of the New Creatives scheme.

SECOND PART

ELLA MESMA | I am all womxn | 8 min

The future is female! “I feel it is important and powerful work to continue to see womxn breaking down stereotypes. I also think it is important to provide platforms for womxn to feel safe and united and able to speak up.” Ella Mesma Ella Mesma Company invited 33 female artists to take part in I Am All Womxn, a piece of lock down art which celebrated and talks about the female experience. Filmed in our homes all over the world (UK, USA, Portugal, Cyprus, Brazil), each section was choreographed by the individual dancing it in reaction to the lyrics, and the video which came before it, with the goal to celebrate womxn in our entirety and empower more of us to embrace every side of ourselves as womxn.

These are the wonder womxn who took part in order of appearance

Performance highlights include Russell Maliphant Company, Lea Anderson (The Chomondeleys), Break-in Convention and Olympics Opening Ceremony.

AMBER JARMAN-CRAINEY | Commute | 2:14 min

'Commute' is a short movement film that portrays feelings of literally being drowned by work life. A never-ending cycle of conforming to expectations. A sense of helplessness, of being ‘sucked in’, trapped and an inability to change and break free. Unable to map out a clear pathway to the future you desire.

Dancers: Daisy Rimmer & Pip Thackway

Amber Jarman-Crainey is a London-based choreographer, professional contemporary dancer and immersive theatre performer. Amber also specialises in creating movement for screen, short films and music videos. Her work often uses natural sound blended with movement influenced by the environmental context.

MARIA POPOVA | The Last Dance | 3.23 min

The Last Dance is a gasp for air, the drawn-out breath that eases the tightness in the chest, the yawn that follows the anxious breath.
This film captures the first time I was able to process the pandemic through my body, a body that is rusty from 4 months of lockdown, a body that is less agile, less fit, and less inspired. Though it is in this search for freedom that this body is able to speak again, or even, whisper.

Maria Popova - choreographer, director, and editor.
Sound Credit: Goodbye by Apparat


Maria Popova is a Russian-born dance artist, based in Leeds. Her practice is rooted in improvisation and interdisciplinary performance making. Maria’s choreographic work positions the female body at the heart of the artistic exploration, while her fascination with sculptural form can be seen as a running theme throughout her wider research.

CORINA ANDRIAN (Red-Cor) | SUNLESS | 7:26 min

DANCE = body + motion
How deep can you explore “dance”? What moves when everything is still?
The still body is alive. The pores breathe, the heart beats, the dynamic viewer is shaken.
How far can you strip down “body”? What is vulnerability when there’s nothing left to strip?

Directed by: Red-Cor
Performers/Co-Choreographers: Corina Andrian Mariana Gavriciuc Beatrice Tudor
Editor: Corina Andrian
Camera/Production Assistants: Keita Ikeda, Petre One?, Filip Stoica, Cristina Tudor
Music: Adrian Piciorea

Corina Andrian (aka. Red-Cor) is a Romanian film director and professional dancer currently based in London. Red-Cor looks at life curiously experimenting with the very fabric of life by blending time and movement into a surreal synaesthetic visual unity and aspires to an ideal tangible cinema.

LUDMILA GILLES | Collage(s) | 3:44 min

Collage(s) is a collage of thoughts and wishes. It is an exploration of self, questioning the 'who' through the eyes of the human being before the dancer. Do we only see what we want to see? Do our actions simply reflect what we qualify as representative of ourselves? Every situation is lived under the light of our subjectivity, which is itself built by our experiences. Thus, can anything ever be new? Or are we doomed to always see what would be a collage of our memories?

Video concept, editing and performer: Ludmila Gilles
Music : created by Louise Franck with Jeanne Caron’s voice and an excerpt from Esther by Yann Tiersen


Ludmila Gilles is a French dancer and choreographer. After training at Rambert School in London she will soon join Verve as a dancer of the company. Recent work includes performing at the Resolution festival in London, as well as working on a commission from Homotopia with Matthew Rawcliffe during lockdown. Outside of dance Ludmila loves dreaming, swimming under a starry sky, cooking for her family, and Dolan’s movies.

THIRD PART

ANNA DUNLOP | Heirloom | 9:44 min

This was the house my great-grandfather built. It has to be sold, and will probably be torn down. I wonder where the ghosts will go now.
The music was inspired by Alzheimer's patients. Late stage sufferers can still recognize songs that were once important to them, even when everything else has gone.

Creation: Anna Dunlop
Music: An Empty Bliss Beyond This World by The Caretaker.
Special thanks to Paul Kelly, Wallace and Mary Dunlop, Maureen and David Elliot, and all the descendants of Bryce Dunlop of Northern Antrim


Anna Dunlop is a dance artist based nowhere and everywhere at the moment. She trained in Canada and Holland before completing her degree at London Contemporary Dance School and is now working freelance in Canada and the UK. Her work crosses mediums and explores exhaustion, authenticity, and horror.

PETRI DELIGHTS| Interframe | 3:00 min

Interframe is a remotely created dance film with choreography by Jason Tucker, design by Sonia Odedra and Maggie Campbell
Encapsulating Petri Delights’ ecoqueer aesthetic, alternate realms and mini performances are stitched into one virtual performance space. Where a series of uncanny creatures morph their bodies, joining and melting.

Choreography: Jason Tucker
Design: Sonia Odedra and Maggie Campbell
Sound: Adam Paroussos
Edit: Maggie Campbell
Creative Consultant: Rosie Reith
Dancers: Dead Arm, India, Alina Belyagina, Germany; Darcy Benham, UK; Vera Bundschuh, Hungary; Danielle Lee-Hogervorst, Canada; and Jasmine Lin, USA.


Petri Delights is an interdisciplinary collective which combines design, dance and sound to create alternate realms. Petri Delights’ practice deals with the representation of the natural world, the nonhuman, how that can be queered and what that means for our relationship with it.

NICOLA HEPP & TATIANA SPIEWAK | Tabula Rasa | 3:21 min

"Somewhere along the way strange times caress our skin. They turn us inwards and upside down - they press us against the windowpane, force us to stand still on a blank page.”
Tabula Rasa is a non-narrative film, encapsuling a moment in time, a place of limbo, a state of mind.

Dance: Tatiana ?piewak

ANDRES SALAS, BELEN VEGA | OTRX TÚ | 4:02 min

“Otrx tú” is an audiovisual production that reveales the intimate space between two people in confinement. They are like two particles agitating, combusting within this nest-tomb that is containing them.
They invoke sun and our relations. They jump and sinchronize in order to keep the light of their existence alive.

Direction: Andrés Salas, Belén Vega

Performers: Andrés Salas, Belén Vega
Production: Núcleo Detonar


Andrés Salas and Belén Vega are members of DETONAR, a multidisciplinary group for artistic creation within the performing arts.

YOGA & MEDITATION | TIFFANY HAMILTON ATKINS

Movement Medicine

TIME 8:45-9:45am

In this flow class we will start slowly; awakening an unfurling the fluid body. Once we have created that space we can begin to play in the spaces in between the poses exploring the possibility of the end of one pose as the beginning of another to create flow. .

Suitable for all

She was passionate about bringing this sense of freedom and connection to other people and began her teaching journey

OPENING COFFEE MORNING with SARAH BLANC

How can we turn this current sh!t storm into a glitter storm?

TIME 10am-10:45am

Hey Babes, join me, Sarah Blanc, for the first ever coffee morning of the first ever online TripSpace festival 2020 where we will get close, comfy and set intentions for the weekend ahead and beyond. I invite you to bring your questions and ask Contemporary Dance’s Sweetheart (that's me) anything you want. I have a Gold Medal in Optimism, a BA(hons) in Looking on the Bright Side and Masters in Nail Art.

How can we turn this current sh!t storm into a glitter storm? Or in the words of an academic how can we subverse the current disastrous conditions to something that we can truly develop and grow from. That wasn't even academic but for me it was a bit.
See you soon.
Don't be late.
Bring a brew.

Suitable for all

WORKSHOP with BEN McEWEN

Whatever state you’re in, whatever space you’re in!

TIME 11-12:30pm

We’ll start from articulations for body and attention, drawing non-exhaustively on Steve Paxton’s Material for the Spine, martial arts, and my own lockdown researches. Using these investigations to define and refine connections and distinctions within ourselves, tasting potentials for ease, sensitivity and power. We'll gradually build from these into solo improvisations, finding ways to soften and sharpen our attention and decision making. We’ll work on creating spatially complex full-bodied dancing even within a restricted space... or at the very least enjoy shaking off some lockdown cobwebs!

TALK with RACHEL ELDERKIN and YUKIKO MASUI

A Future For Freelancers (restructuring the power dynamic)

TIME 5pm-6pm

The last few months have made visible the vulnerability of freelancers in our dance industry. It's something we were all aware of, but how could we change the system?
Now we've paused. There's space for change. And we've realised how much that change is needed.
There are many conversations happening and a future in which freelancers are better supported and more highly valued is a tangible possibility - if we can keep the momentum going and find strength in our collective voice.
In conversation with Yukiko Masui, chair of Equity Dance Committee, we'll discuss the events and conversations of the last months, the needs of freelance artists moving forward, and the change we hope to see.
It's time to move forward together and restructure the power dynamic.

Remembering the “WHY?”

TIME 12-1:30pm (BST)

Remember WHY you dance, WHY you enjoy moving your body. WHY you want to do it around others. During this class we will explore moving for pleasure. Starting with a warm up of breath work, yoga and conditioning we’ll prepare our minds and bodies. A research based class, the choice is yours on how much effort to use, to choose what interests you, to choose what you’d like to explore through a series of tasks and improvisations. We’ll explore the space around us, connect as a group (even through the screen) and move to some bangers!

WORKSHOP with PHIL HULFORD

MOVING BREATH

TIME 2pm-4pm (BST)

We will begin with the breath. I will lead you through a breathwork exercise the get us more aware of the breath. From there we will go into some improvised movements which I will guide you through using imagery. There is no "wrong way to move". It is all about cultivating appreciation for the present moment.
Because of the nature of present focussed movement, there is no plan other than that. We keep it simple. Connect the body and the mind using breath. It could well get very physical, or we could dive deep into extended breathing and movement sections.
It is an experience of letting go of what "should" be and accepting what is, which opens more opportunity in the body and the mind.

Suitable for all

Phil worked as a pro dancer with Hofesh Shechter Company for over 10 years. In 2016 he went freelance into the world of creature performing (film, tv and motion capture acting). He has played a live animatronic gorilla in theatre productions as well as worked as a parkour artist/athlete on various projects.

SLOW FLOW

TIME 4:30-6pm (BST)

A relaxed and mindful reminder of your body, putting you calmly in touch with a quiet inner power. From a somatic warm-up we move through a series of simple postures and slow, meditative patterns of movement and breath, to become grounded in body and mind.
Be reminded of your roots through a series of guided movement flows, bringing awareness to your centre and a sense of stability and length. Leave feeling refreshed and energised, centred in the present moment. A class for all movers, held by Matt in the safe, explorative and lighthearted manner for which he has become known in workshops across the world.

Suitable for all

TIME 6:30-7:30 (BST)

Eleanor Sikorski and Last Yearz Interesting Negro will chat together about dance, choreography and teaching and how it exists online: out of convenience and out of necessity. They have both been working as artists since they graduated together ten years ago and they’ve witnessed a lot of change. They will reflect on how their own work has moved screen-wards and the reasons for that, out of choice and need, and they will share their recent experiences of creating work online with students. Listen in, have a chance to ask your own questions and enjoy their rants and raves.

Jamila Johnson-Small is a London-born and based artist of Caribbean descent. They make performances, (de)compositions between what is held in their own body, the space and the bodies of the spectators. Always relational and thinking cumulatively, moving across spaces, contexts, roles and collaborations, the work gathers and transmits information through inviting others in, creating various constellations to build spaces for dancing, performance, listening and conversation.

YOGA with VANESSA MICHIELON

Cultivating loving kindness TIME 8:45-9:45 (BST)

Self-care is never a selfish act - it is simply good stewardship of the only gift I have, the gift I was put on earth to offer others. Anytime we can listen to true self and give the care it requires, we do it not only for ourselves, but for the many others whose lives we touch.” - Parker Palmer
In this Vinyasa flow we will nourish our body with stretches and fluid movements, and enjoy a Metta (Loving kindness) meditation at the end to cultivate unconditional well-wishing both for ourselves and all other beings.
Suitable for all

Vanessa’s teaching style makes people feel welcome, included, respected and safe. Her mission is to empower people to notice how their energy levels, breath quality and emotions can flow when they use their bodies in specific ways.
With an MA in Dance Performance and more than 1000 hours of Teacher Trainings in Yoga, Pilates, Barre and Dance Education, she offers students a unique perspective on how moving mindfully and becoming aware of our habitual holding patterns can help break the stress loop we are often stuck-in and allow our bodies to be more available, free of tension and more grounded.

COFFEE MORNING with IRENE CIONI

Stories of performing and parenthood

TIME 10-10:45am (BST)

Being a dancer I always wondered how on earth could such an unordinary, unpredictable and self-centred job be combined with having a child. Childcare in the performing arts has become a hot-topic in the last 6 years, somehow coinciding with the birth of my first child (funny how that happens). P.I.P.A. (Parents in Performing Arts) was first funded around that time and I started writing my blog www.mumsonstage.com towards the end of 2014. Online resources were scarce then and still are now but significantly less so.
I invite you to converse with me and share your’s and listen to other’s stories of performing and parenthood. Training, breastfeeding, touring, your body, your struggles and your successes.
The crisis of our industry in the time of pandemic has forced us to revisit our way of working and training methods and of course the relationship between that and our family. What are we learning?

Suitable for all

Irene is a multi-entangled choreographer, movement director, dancer, maker and collaborator in London. Her work spans disciplines including film, theatre, live art, music, fashion and education. You can find more about her here www.irenecioni.art

TALK: LEILA MCMILLAN in conversation with DAVID ZAMBRANO

TIME 12-1pm (BST)

Join us for a rare opportunity to listen to Leila McMillan in conversation with David Zambrano from remote locations. There’ll be lots of talking and laughing… They’ll discuss intersections between teaching and choreographic practice, Zambrano’s solo improvisation project during lockdown and the transition from traveling to being more stationary. How we stay alive through moving, how we keep a sense of playfulness in all that we do…

Leila McMillan is an international dance artist, teacher and choreographer, who creates work that is high-energy yet nuanced and abstract in its choreography, drawing on personal experiences focusing on themes of identity, gender and the cultural interface. Collaboration is at the heart of her process and Flying Low/Passing Through techniques support her artistic practice. Since receiving a place on David Zambrano’s 50 Days Flying Low and Passing Through (2010), Leila is one of the internationally certified artists teaching these techniques and has led the development of this approach in the UK. From 2012-2020 she was co-founder/Director of Muxima, an Independent cafe in Bow, East London, regularly producing art, music and performance events, awarded several times ‘Best Cafe in East London’.

For over 35 years, David Zambrano has been a monumental figure in the international dance community, and his passion for cultural exchange continues to influence his work. Teaching and performing internationally, Zambrano is an ambassador and liaison across many borders, bringing together artists from all over the planet for his projects. An inspiring teacher, thrilling performer, and innovative choreographer, Zambrano has contributed generously to the field of dance in ways that have influenced many and impacted the dance world from several angles. His development of the “Flying Low” and “Passing Through” techniques are among his recent innovations that have helped to lead improvisational dance into an exciting future. Most recently along with Mat Voorter they opened Tic Tac an international centre for artists in Brussels.

WORKSHOP with SEKE CHIMUTENGWENDE

Interregnum*

TIME 1:30-3pm (BST)

We are lost in the desert. We have come to a fork in the road. We have no map. Our ship is lost at sea. A storm is brewing. We have run out of supplies. There is a dark forest growing around us.
What do we do when no one is in charge, when there is no clear direction, when the future seems to be slipping away from us? How do we navigate the storm both as individuals and as a collective?
We will work with movement, speech, writing and conversation to unlock these questions and look to improvisational practices as tools for survival.
*An interregnum is a period of discontinuity or "gap" in a government, organisation, or social order.

Suitable for All

Seke Chimutengwende is a dancer, improviser, choreographer, movement director and teacher. He has performed for companies such as DV8 Physical Theatre and Lost Dog and has performed solo and group improvisations internationally since 2006.

WORKSHOP with RAKESH SUKESH

Payatt INtransit

TIME 3:30-5:30 (BST)

Payatt INtransit is a contemporary movement technique that combines movement principles from the ancient Indian martial art form of Kalaripayattu with yogic practices and energy work to stimulate the source of energy in our body. It trains the practitioners in a safe, organic and yet rigorous way to become more confident, relaxed, flexible and powerful, training us to be quick in our reflexes, while simultaneously guiding us to cultivate a constant inner calm. The class challenges our physical and mental limits, training the physicality to be quick, energetic, while mentally we remain calm, and relaxed, undisturbed by the agitation of physicality. We learn to isolate the strong physical aspect of this class from the constant calm within, enabling us to gain complete control over the movement rather that the movement controlling us. and enhancing our ability to adapt to unexpected situations and make innovative yet efficient choices, we combine our physical energy and with the energy around us.

Suitable for professional dancers, movers, performers

In the past 10 years Rakesh has been working on developing a contemporary movement method called Payatt INtransit - using Kalarippayattu and contemporary movement techniques, yoga and energy work. He has been invited to teach Payatt INtransit at various festivals and for companies such as Sidi Larbi’s company, Ultima Vez, Impuls Tanz at the summer festival/summer schools of Deltebre Danza Spain, Tanzfabrik Berlin, Colombo Dance Factory Zurich, Dancentrumjette Brussels, University of Costa Rica, Concordia University Canada, Drama school Helsinki, Bremen, SEAD in Salzburg and so on. He also works as a freelance performer/ choreographer, collaborating with various artists and doing solo works & improvisations.
He currently lives in Brussels Belgium , dividing his time between Europe, America and Asia

CLOSING WORKSHOP with JOSE VIDAL

A journey beyond time and space

TIME 6-7:30 (BST)

This workshop is the closing event of the Trip The Light Fantastic TV festival.
As we close these three intense days Jose invites us to be part of an artistic/ritualistic journey which, through movement, will connect us to our inner self, with others and with the cosmos, at an energetic level. Jose’s teaching is influenced by researching the links between artistic practice and shamanic practice.
Jose invites us to gather, wake up our collective magical powers and create a Vibration Ritual of Human connection that transcends social, cultural, and political boundaries as well as geographical ones. The intention is to experience wholeness and embody the true sensation that we are one and part of the totality, the wholeness

Suitable for all

Born in the south of Chile in the city of Valdivia, José Luis Vidal studied Anthropology and Sociology before beginning his dance studies. In 1996 he studied in New York on a scholarship from the American Dance Festival, and after working as a performer in various European companies, he obtained a Masters in Choreography from LCDS. His works is deeply influenced by his fundamental interest in the interdependence of structure and chaos, collectivity, community and society, arising from the sum of individual bodies. He derives his choreographic strategies from his intensive engagement with various natural and cultural phenomena. His artistic research is influenced by the interaction of organisms in natural ecosystems; animal swarm behaviour, flocking, spiritual rituals, but also rave and techno culture.

WHILE OUR DOORS ARE SHUT...OUR ONLINE STUDIO IS OPEN!

March 18, 2020, 3:06 p.m. by Giuliana
WHILE OUR DOORS ARE SHUT...OUR ONLINE STUDIO IS OPEN!

We won't let this epidemic get in the way of our practice. In fact: its in time like this we need the grounding that our practice gives us most!

Practice with your favourite teachers from home

As a trial, we are starting by offering one class per day at 6:45pm this week:

Daniela | Dynamic Vinyasa | Wednesday 6:45pm (TODAY!!!)
Ann | Hatha Yoga | Thursday 6:45pm
Amanda | Vinyasa into Yin | Friday 6:45pm

It is the first time we are doing this so we imagine there might some teething problems here and there... please be patient!

We'll use these trial classes to sort out any glitches and to build on extending to a fuller schedule.

One exciting thing we are taking away from this is that we can all invite family and friends far and close to join in too and share our passion for yoga with some of our fave teachers! Isn't it amazing that in these difficult times we can actually extend our community virtually?!

How does it work:
Book via MindBody as per usual. They will be able to book up to 1 hour before class.

Close to class commencement time you are encouraged to create a comfortable space for themselves, collecting any prop/prop substitutes or blankets you need.

Students will also need have their computers ready: 10 minutes before class. We will send them an email with an invitation to "join a meeting" and a link to download ZOOM, when they follow the link they will connect to the class.

Please note that during the clas profiles will be muted as otherwise the screens will hop! However, students can leave comments and questions in the chat at the end of the class and the teacher will be able to see these. We welcome any feedback.

CLASS PRICES

DROP IN £10

ALL MEMBERSHIPS & CARNETS RECEIVE A 20% DISCOUNT*

We are aware, that like ourselves, many folks are in a tight place financially right now. If you are one of these people please email [email protected] asking for the PROMOCODE for a further discount.

All members will need to check their email is correct on their MBO account: otherwise we will not be able to send them the link email!!

ClassPass members will have to email [email protected] as ClassPass doesn't release their email and we will NOT be able to send them the link... in fact, it's better if you can sign up with the studio directly!!

FINALLY
We just want say that we hope this service will be useful in these difficult times, to remain grounded, to remain healthy and to remain part of this community. .... but also if people connect it will help the studio survive and keep the Yoga teachers working. It's all about supporting each other at the moment!

TEMPORARILY CLOSED

March 16, 2020, 11:46 p.m. by Montse
In light of this evening's announcement of Government's revised policy on Covid-19, it is with heavy hearts that we are temporarily closing the studio.

We feel this is the best thing to do in terms of our communal responsibility to the greater public, although we will miss you all during this respite and we will re-open our doors as soon as we can.
We know that everyone is feeling the uncertainty as much as we are and feel that fostering our community and supporting each other is more important than ever at this juncture.

To this end we are figuring out the best way possible to offer you online classes with your favourite teachers and will update you just as soon as we can about how we are doing this.

Stay connected here and on social media for the latest and keep well.

With warm wishes from the Tripspace Team

Yoga postures, music, breathing, storytelling, and relaxation techniques are woven together to create imaginative and fun yoga classes for toddlers (18 months-4 Yrs) and carers.Yoga is a wonderful activity to share with your toddler. It helps them to develop agility and stamina and also helps with their mental and emotional development. As well as improving their concentration and helping them to relax, yoga offers toddlers a chance to connect with their bodies and to express themselves.

Testimonials:

Emily offers a grounded and playful yoga class that promotes movement, relaxation, and mindfulness. She uses props and creative songs which my daughter now recites regularly. Emily allows the space for kids to be kids. She strikes a beautiful balance between being kind and supportive while also being directive in a way that keeps little ones participating and engaged. She encourages empowerment, happiness, and lightness. Yoga classes with Emily are the highlight of our busy toddler week; I recommend her without reservation.
Courtney Stefanowicz

Toddler yoga is such a wonderful change from all the other loud, high-paced activities we usually participate in. Emily is so kind and patient as a teacher and makes the class a really lovely experience. We look forward to it each week! .
Jess and Eva (22 months)

Emily is an enthusiastic and committed teacher. She is able to teach a broad range of ages from early years to teens. Her lessons are creative, fun and warm. Emily is reliable and professional and able to communicate well with children and teachers to make classes work for all in the space provided.
Mehala (Wise kids )

EMILY McGregor

Emily McGregor is founder, and creator of Generation Mind Body and Soul - a program for toddlers, children and teenagers, incorporating yoga, music, mindfulness, meditation, nutrition, and self-belief. She has worked with children and teens for many years now. She is a Starchild yoga teacher and a Birthlight toddler yoga teacher, she also have a degree in music specializing in the effects music can have on developing children. Her aim is to help guide this potential-rich generation to be the happiest and healthiest that they can be, and to provide them with the skills to achieve that potential; skills they'll employ for the rest of their lives.
There has never been a more challenging, stressful or difficult time to be a young person and yoga, music, mindfulness, and meditation are amazing tools that can help young people to find strategies and coping techniques to deal with difficult situations in the best possible way.

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.

Restorative Yoga

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..

Lucy McCarthy's yoga journey began many years ago on a rooftop in India. She fell immediately in love with this beautiful, peace-inducing practice and has never looked back. After studying traditional Hatha Yoga in Rajasthan, India, she trained with Max Strom in America, whom she now assists on his trainings around the world. She has also completed over 1000 hours of training in a diverse array of traditions and styles including Anusara inspired vinyasa with Sianna Sherman and Meghan Currie, Forrest with the infamous Ana Forrest as well as studying yogic philosophy, meditation and pranayama under the guidance of Louisa Sear, Rose Baudin and Clive Sheridan.

Passionate about the physical, spiritual and emotional benefits of yoga, her classes encourage being open to whatever is in your heart and mind when you arrive on the mat.

Lucy is also highly skilled in leading restorative and pregnancy yoga sessions, and she is profoundly influenced by her Vipassana meditation practice. With a gratitude for all the teachers before her that have inspired her path, Lucy teaches from a place of warmth and wisdom.

Lucy's class is a fluid, breath and alignment based vinyasa flow class.

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.

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

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!

Dec. 21, 2015, 5:08 p.m. by Giuliana
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

Dec. 9, 2015, 5:15 p.m. by Giuliana

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

http://www.tripspace.co.uk/class/192/tomislav-english-facilitates-pro-dance-training/

WILL BE REPLACED BY MARIA FONSECA ( Mon-Wed) and LEWIS WILKINS (Thursday)

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. Lewis has previously taught for Greenwich Dance Agency, University College Sussex, Scottish School of Contemporary Dance, Scottish Dance Theatre, and 2Faced Dance Company.

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: [email protected]

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.

A time slot where independent artists making their own work can share space to create and develop their practice and still keep it affordable. ( £10 for solo artists/ £15 for companies of two/ £18 for one choreographer and two dancers)

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.

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.

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.

Keep your eyes peeled, for classes, workshops and open space happening soon
