WORSKHOP FOR PROFESSIONAL DANCERS, ADVANCED OR BEGINNERS

This workshop led by Australian Choreographer James Batchelor will experiment with how the body can map space. Since his involvement on an expedition to sub-Antarctic Heard and McDonald Islands in 2016, James has been questioning how the body senses, measures and maps the unknown. This was the experience that led to the development of the performance HYPERSPACE and other works by James Batchelor and Collaborators.

 

The workshop will introduce participants to James Batchelor’s approach to movement through a series of open-ended scores for improvisation from the performance. This will be supported by discussions, reading, writing, and drawing. The focus will be on sharing creative tools and discovering the potential within the micro-world of the body.

James Batchelor and Collaborators are a team of independent dance artists from Australia. Led by Choreographer James Batchelor, Creative Producer BekBerger, Composer Morgan Hickinbotham and guests, the team brings together a unique precision of practice and friendship that allows for inspired movement through a variety of contexts. Their body of work, including DEEPSPACE (DanceMassive 2017) and REDSHIFT (Chunky Move, Next Move Commission 2017) is known for its visual clarity, architectural composition and rhythmic playfulness.With a commitment to slowness and sensitivity, movement is hypnotically focused and detailed, drawing audiences into contemplative and imaginative realms. They have presented extensively in various festivals in Australia and overseas. Their latest creation HYPERSPACE (Aerowaves Twenty19) is the culmination of two years of practice together and will tour Australia and Europe in 2019/2020.
