Dancing in Caves Artist CPD Workshop - Redcliffe Caves, BS1 6SR - CANCELLED

Redcliffe Caves, Bristol

Saturday, 21 Jul

No prices yet

On Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd July, Made By Katie Green - a dance company specialising in making work for heritage sites - are bringing their most recent promenade work for caves and underground spaces, Beneath Our Feet, to Bristol Harbour Festival and to the Redcliffe Caves.

On Saturday 21st July from 10-1pm, we will be offering professional dance artists the opportunity to join the company for a workshop exploring site specific practice and the process of responding choreographically to underground spaces.

This workshop will take place on-site at the Redcliffe Caves.  A series of man-made tunnels beneath the Redcliffe area of Bristol, originally dug to provide sand for glass-making and pottery production, the ‘Caves’ are not usually open to the public. A site with a multitude of stories, of trading and prisoners, hermits and hauntings for example, don’t miss this rare opportunity to access the space.

The workshop will include:

Warm-up and introduction of ideas on-site 10-11am

Choreographic exploration from 11-1pm, looking at some of the themes and ideas from Beneath Our Feet and supporting participants’ exploration of their own ideas (including playing with use of sound and different light sources)

"Had an amazing and very enjoyable weekend working with Katie Green - some very useful tasks and techniques to creating work that I will definitely be using in the future to help me create new and interesting material"

Feedback from previous professional development workshop participant

Do I need to prepare anything in advance?

Please note that we will not have access to a dance studio space for warming up prior to going on site, so it is advisable for you to warm up prior to arriving at 10am.

The workshop is aimed at student and professional dance artists who we expect to have undertaken some vocational dance/movement training. You do not have to have previous experience of working site-specifically.

What will I need to bring with me?

You may want to bring a notebook and something to write with for discussions or noting down ideas but this is not essential. Please also bring water/snacks, we will take a short break during the workshop.

What will I need to wear?

Please wear supportive shoes with good grip and dress for the cooler temperatures.

Will refreshments be provided?

Please bring your own drinks/snacks for a short break. 

Any other questions, please contact us on [email protected] .
