Creative Workshop in Acrobatics and Gaga movement
“A fantastic opportunity to work with the creators of the award winning circus theatre show ‘Rime’.”
Tim Lenkiewicz, Artistic Director, Square Peg
Martin Corri, Choreographer, Square Peg
Anthony Middleton, Artistic Director, Middleton Corpus
Over four days, with artistic director Tim Lenkiewicz, we will be looking at acrobatic techniques used by Square Peg Contemporary Circus together with movement ideas from Martin Corri whose work combines the Gaga approach developed by Ohad Narin of Bhatsheva Dance Company with ideas inherited from his work with Jiri Killian of Nederlands Dance Theatre (NDT1). Anthony Middleton is a choreographer who uses acrobatic principles in contemporary choreography. He has developed his practice through his dancing career and his experience as an international championship level Acrobatic Gymnast.
Each day will consist of three sessions: a dance class, an acrobatic training session and a creative session exploring different ways of combining these ways of working.
Participants will work alongside the members of Square Peg Contemporary Circus under the guidance of Tim Lenkiewicz and Martin Corri, to gain insight into the company’s work and learn techniques for encouraging creativity with dance and acrobatics.
Open to participants with experience of solo, or group acrobatics or a strong background in dance.
