Dancing in Caves Workshop & Performance Opportunity - Rosehip Barn and Carnglaze Caverns

Rosehip Barn, Launceston

Sunday, 21 Oct

£26.69 - £32.03

Beneath Our Feet performances at Carnglaze Caverns

Made By Katie Green is a dance company specialising in developing new ways of responding to historical artefacts and heritage sites through dance.

We will be touring our new promenade work for caves and underground spaces, Beneath Our Feet to Carnglaze Cavern (St Neot, PL14 6HQ) on the 26th and 27th October 2018. This piece tells the story of the underground using words, movement, live music and light.

“Stunning evocative performance by Made By Katie Green at Kents Cavern tonight. Live music, storytelling, dance, sound, theatre in a 385 million year old venue. Wonderful.” - Audience feedback from Beneath Our Feet

 

Dancing in Caves professional development workshop and performance opportunity - Rosehip Barn and Carnglaze Caverns

On Sunday 21st October 2018, we will be offering local dance students (university or equivalent) and professional dance artists the opportunity to join the company for a day of workshops exploring site adaptive practice and the process of responding choreographically to underground spaces.

For those who are interested, we can also explore the possibility of workshop participants joining us to perform in our public performances of Beneath Our Feet at Carnglaze Caverns on the 26th and 27th October (there would be no additional cost for this extra opportunity; due to limited capacity underground at Carnglaze, numbers for this performance opportunity would be strictly limited).

The day on the 21st October will take place at Rosehip Barn (PL15 8QN) and include:

Warm-up class and introduction of ideas, 10-1pm

Lunch 1-2pm (please bring your own lunch)

Afternoon choreographic exploration from 2-5pm, looking at some of the themes and ideas from Beneath Our Feet and supporting participants’ exploration of their own ideas

Those participants interested in joining us on-site at Carnglaze Caverns for our performances on the 26th and 27th October would then need to attend additional rehearsals on-site during the daytime on the 26th Oct (times/details to be confirmed)

"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"

Can you give me more information about the performance opportunity?

For those who are interested, we can also explore the possibility of workshop participants joining us to perform in our public performances of Beneath Our Feet at Carnglaze Cavern on the 26th and 27th October (there would be no additional cost for this extra opportunity, and it is not compulsory - you are welcome to attend the workshop whether or not you would like to join the company for the performances).

This opportunity would be developed in response to participants, but may include learning some repertoire from Beneath Our Feet, developing this with other workshop participants, and performing this alongside the company in Carnglaze Caverns.

Those participants interested in joining us on-site at Carnglaze Caverns would then need to attend additional rehearsals on-site during the daytime on the 26th Oct (times/details to be confirmed when we know how many people are interested in this opportunity)

Do I need to have any previous experience?

The workshop and performance opportunity 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, but we would need to feel you could work safely on-site if participating in the performance opportunity.

What will I need to bring with me?

A packed lunch. You may want to bring a notebook and something to write with for discussions or noting down ideas but this is not essential.

What will I need to wear?

We will work in a studio on the 21st October, so please wear something in which you feel comfortable moving and plan to work in bare feet.

Will lunch/refreshments be provided?

Please bring your own packed lunch with you.
