Choreography into Performance Seminar Series

UCLan Dance

Media Factory, Kirkham St, Preston, Lancashire PR1 2XY 

Join us at UCLanDance to work with four nationally and internationally active choreographers currently devising, performing and touring their own works. Explore different choreographic ideas and creative processes, and challenge your own creative habits.

Kapow - Wednesday 6th March
Kapow makes bold and highly physical productions for unusual spaces, designed to make contemporary dance, physical theatre and circus accessible. Eithne and Beth have worked for companies such as Tilted Productions, Earthfall, National Dance Company Wales, National Theatre Wales, Joli Vyann, Opera North, Jorge Cresis and Dylan Quinn Dance Theatre.

TRIBE// - Wednesday 20th March
Brighton based TRIBE// was established in 2016, quickly gaining a reputation for a gutsy emotive and visceral choreographic style with a striking visual aesthetic. Choreographer Victoria Fox creates movement with clout that speaks and connects. There is a virtuosic play between the dynamic articulate movement with full bodied urgency to sensitive partnering with an underlying and real human connection.

Amy Voris - Wednesday 27th March
Amy Voris is a dance-maker based in Manchester. Her practice is process-oriented and collaborative, driven by the desire to develop relationships with people and with movement material over long stretches of time.  In 2012, Amy completed training in Integrative Bodywork and Movement Therapy, an approach to the body that underpins her holistic and enquiring approach to making movement.

Rachel Krische - Tuesday 2nd April
Dr Rachel Krische is an Independent Dance Artist and Senior Lecturer at Leeds Beckett University. With a professional career spanning 26 years she has performed with artists including Akram Khan, La Ribot, Wendy Houstoun, Colin Poole, Deborah Hay, Matthias Sperling and Siobhan Davies. In 2002, she won the Jerwood Choreography Award with Ben Wright. Rachel's most recent performance work with Sally Doughty and Lisa Kendall, ‘Please Do Touch’, examined notions of time, memory, archive and the body as archive.

All 09:30am-12:30pm

Tickets: £12/15 for individual seminars or £40 for the series
