The Instrument | embodying musicality
Exploring the themes of sound and rhythm through multiple modes of listening; physically, cognitively, emotionally, this workshop handles the embodiment of music in dance, composition and performance.
While taking time to acknowledge elements such as inherent rhythmicality, the dynamics inside sound and speed, linear duration and singular punctuation; the work aims to create a vibrant sense of musicality within our choreographic materials.
Throughout the week we will be integrating touch, articulation, flow, momentum and pace; following the passions they evoke, while interpreting tempo / velocity. Accompanied by the live playing of Roy Carroll (electroacoustic-media), participants will encounter the complementary, urgent and immediate interplay between sound / music and dance.
The workshop is aimed for movers, dancers, musicians and performers who wish to engage with the physical dynamic of instant composition. Movement /dance background experience is required.
