In new collaboration, Artistic Director Jen Wren will explore interlacing of physical and vocal languages with music, song, language and dance artists from Spanish and Hebridean backgrounds in an initial research process towards new work.
Jen will spend the week in research with Kathleen MacInnes, Frank McConnell, Ivan Ramos and Adela Ramos, in an exciting process of play and exploration of what can be done when dance, song and language from traditional Gael and Flamenco backgrounds unite.
As part of our residency we are offering the opportunity to join company class to come and find out how the week went as we invite you into the studio to hear/see what we have discovered.
Tuesday 27 June | 10:00-11:30 | Company Class | Free | BOOK HERE
Jen will lead a workshop/class based around her practice of blending Scottish Step dance with Flamenco footwork and movement – sharing new phrases created to a jig time. This can be done with or without shoes.
Come and learn a little of each style before we blend them together and perhaps even throw in some contemporary moves along the way.
Friday 30 June | 16:00-17:00 | Residency Sharing | Free | BOOK HERE
The week will culminate in an artist led conversation surrounding ideas we played with and what was discovered during the week. Come and meet the artists, hear what we have been exploring and ask any questions. This conversation may or may not include demonstrations (to be decided).
If you can’t make it then but want to pop in to say hi, see what we are doing etc – drop us a line and we will try to organise something. email@example.com
