LANGUAGE - a new dance performance project from Siobhan Davies Studios
Do you live, work or study in Elephant and Castle?
Do you love to dance, move and meet new people?
Do you want to be in a new performance that you’ve helped to create?
Siobhan Davies Studios are inviting those with a strong connection to Elephant and Castle to create a new dance performance with them. It will involve up to 12 sessions in June and July with some incredible artists, ending with a celebratory performance on Saturday 9 July.
The theme is LANGUAGE – exploring different dance styles and languages, moving to express ourselves, the power of communication and the fun and frustration that comes with it.
WHO CAN TAKE PART
Participants should have a strong connection to Elephant and Castle: you might live, work, study or have family here.
Experience: No previous experience of dance, movement or performance is needed, but enthusiasm to try is essential!
Participants under the age of 12 must be with a guardian over the age of 18 who is also participating. This is a project where everyone who attends takes part.
Participants between 12 and 18 attending alone will need to provide a guardian’s consent ahead of the sessions. Our lead facilitators have been DBS checked.
HOW TO TAKE PART
Participation is FREE.
Complete the registration form on the project's website.
ABOUT THE WORKSHOPS
Led by skilled dance and theatre artists you will join other participants to think, play and create a new performance together over 10 sessions, a final rehearsal and the show itself.
Sessions will be on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays (+ a final rehearsal on Friday 8 July), and you can join one of three groups: A, B or C (morning, afternoon or evening). Attend as many or as few of your group’s sessions as you can but make sure we know that you’re coming!
