For the past few months, “6 Feet, 3 Shoes” choreographers Jen Wren and Luisa Galan have been making, developing, and preparing choreographic material in Dance Studio Leeds for the performance element of the piece. They have been hard at work fusing together and finding parallels between Scottish Step Dance, Flamenco, and Contemporary, drawing together all of the material including working on music and storytelling elements so that it reflects the narrative of their own experiences.
While this process was always known to be a “slow burner”, they are cranking up the pace in the lead up to working alongside new artists and developing the work in autumn 2017.
It’s an exciting process for them as they continue to explore all possibilities and ideas to inject into the work and have been coming up with not only interesting but unusual creative snippets most likely never seen before, (like ever ever in performance). Examples include a Flamenco take on the traditional Scottish Sword Dance, counting sheep in old Norse (with an accompanying hilarious story), and awkward greetings in dance form…
Sounds intriguing, doesn’t it?
