Practice Sharing

New in 2022

Practice Sharing is an arena to enter into artistic dialogue, an opportunity to share skills, a space for physical thinking, and a way to engage in different creative practices.

Facilitated by established local dance artists and visiting guest artists, the sessions are presented in an open, workshop-style format that may move between dancing, writing, choreographic research and discussion. Unlike technique class, it offers a more flexible opportunity to investigate ways of working, rather than learning and perfecting specific movement phrases.

The format of the session is led by the artist-facilitator and offers artists a chance to engage in critical exploration of their work with a group of like-minded peers.

As an alternative or addition to traditional technique class, Practice Sharing allows artists to engage in new methodologies aimed to unlock and explore new approaches to enhance your creative practice.

What to expext in Natalie Allen's Practice Sharing session:

Participants will be led through Natalie's evolving Seven Bodies practice. We will access a deeper understanding of the complex dialogues of the body that are already at play via physical and emotional stimuli. Through structured improvisation and clear tasks we will explore, discover, interrogate and honour the range of capacities that exist within the body and available to us. We will further develop, transform and embody. Let's become and go beyond together!
