updates on the Harwood workshops

Monday, December 8th, 2008

There have been some changes to the workshop times – only in Byron Bay.

Andrew Harwood will now be teaching an intensive weekend workshop in Byron instead of a full week. Also, Paula Zacharias will be accompanying Harwood and contributing to the teaching in Byron – sharing her own work as an addition to Harwood’s teaching. This menas there is more teaching time than the other locations for the same price. Byron’s looking good! We will post some more info about Paula up here soon. An outline of the Byron workshop is as follows:

Thursday Feb 12th – 6 – 9.30pm
Friday Feb 13th 6pm – 9.30pm
Saturday 14th & Sunday 15th 11am – 5pm

By chance I stumbled across an interview with Andrew on YouTube – it’s in French.

We’re bringing Andrew Harwood out to Australia in January 2009.

We’ve stayed in touch since our residency and performances with him in 2006 and have finally managed to co-ordinate dates. Andrew will be teaching a workshop in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Byron Bay. At the same time we will be rehearsing and performing with him in each location (except Byron Bay – at the moment).

If you’re interested in attending the workshop download the flyer. More details here soon.


go sic at acic

the 4th annual Australian Contact Improvisation Convergence is just around the corner. we will be there in facilitating and teaching roles as well as just to have a dance and a break from the rest of our lives. it’s been a while between drinks. and we’re thirsty.

ACIC is part of the CI36 celebrations happening around the world. it’s a Satellite Event and maybe there will be some media hook up while we’re there. martin hughes will be teaching at and attending CI36, which is great to see him being recognised by the global CI community. he has been so influential in the development of CI in Australia.

not sure if there are any tickets left, but it’s going to be a great time at ACIC… get in if you can.

not so little con

Friday, February 29th, 2008

the super duper multi-stratified chronologically structured little con.

that’s where we’re performing next. it’s in melbourne at Dancehouse from 7 – 9pm on Feb 29th, 2008.

from the blurb:

What happens when you bring together some of Australia’s finest contemporary dancers with some of Australia’s leading improvisers, contact and butoh practitioners: 5 spaces, 30 dancers – a lot of boxes and 2 hours to find out. Don’t miss the february little con. It’s a monster.

Friday 29th Feb, 7pm @ Dancehouse.
In February, The Little Con will be a special two-hour long curated and
scored improvisational dance event bringing together dancers working across
different contemporary forms. Audience members will be able to come and go
at their leisure, roaming freely about the upstairs space and are invited to become part of the performance by using cardboard boxes to divide and
redivide the space into three sections, creating separate and intimate
viewing environments.
Cost: $7 @ the door.

there’s a crazy excel spreadsheet detailing when and where everyone is performing that has had a few revisions and makes my eye water when i try to read it. here’s hoping that it all makes sense on the night.

video documentation to follow.
