Groups will have a 2-hour workshop with each company and explore the following-
James Cousins Company:
Based on Within Her Eyes the workshop content has been designed by the company in collaboration with experienced GCSE dance teachers to make clear links to the GCSE specification and aim to:
- Introduce the choreographic themes
- Allow pupils to ask questions about transferring a work from stage to film
- Discuss the production features and their link to the choreographic intention
- Demonstrate key phrases from the work that makes links to the dance idea
- Teach pupils a key sequence from the work
- Develop pupils contact and choreographic skills to support both their understanding of the work and their own performance and choreographic work
- Inspire pupils with a unique opportunity to work with experiences professional dancers
In this workshop, students will work through a programme of creative tasks and exercises that unpick the ideas and themes of Emancipation of Expressionism. Led by a Boy Blue dance practitioner, the workshop will provide your students with the tools to recreate and reimagine the production.
Cost: £30 per student
