FREE 4 by 20 Dance Workshops (for 12+ year olds; open to all ability levels)
Sunday 17 July
Throughout the Festival of Dance we are delighted to be hosting free dance workshops for schools and the wider community (no dance experience necessary!)
Explore movement and creativity with the 4 by 20 dance artists Roseanna Anderson and AOmaon Collectif, Olivia and Adélie.
Roseanna invites you to join her in transforming the surrealist paintings of Leonora Carrington into short, choreographic works. Drawing on sound, movement and design, the workshop will be a space to experiment, play and collaborate with others to create original artistic responses to Carrington’s rich, visual world. Roseanna will lead a contemporary dance-based physical warm up, followed by a series of practical, creative tasks that stem from the research and development for her new work.
Roseanna Anderson is a dancer, choreographer and director, working as an independent artist and co-director of Impermanence. In 2022, she performed in the production of Dr. Semmelweis, starring Mark Rylance.
In this workshop, you will connect to inner power through groove and body weight, building energy through improvisation tasks and creative movement phrases. By navigating through imagination and different movement intensity, we will explore the different colours of dance. We invite every mover and curious mind to take risks and find new patterns in their body language.
AOmaon Collectif is created by two young French artists : Olivia Grassot and Adélie Lavail. It all began during their training at the Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance where they developed their artistic identity and found a common interest in choreography to generate their own creative language.
