MASTERCLASS WITH LESLIE SCOTT
TUESDAY, 21 February 2017 | 1.00pm - 3.00pm | JWCOCA The Shopfront
Old school technique class with new school questions.
Classes begin with intention and awareness through some Bartenieff work. Then standing things. Then a phrase. You know how this goes. Exercises can be boring so let's make them important. Phrases can be patriarchal so let’s make them fun. Any way you look at it: smart movers make good art.
Comfortable clothing would be most suitable for this class and bring your water bottle with you!
MASTERCLASS WITH MÁTÉ MÉSZÁROS

Come and participate in a two hour practical dance masterclass with internationally acclaimed creator Máté Mészáros.
Mate says - "Our body is the same in every movement and in any style but the possibilty to change is essential. We focus on these principals through different exercises and ways of approaches. We explore floorwork and partnering based on the material of creations from my performances. Dynamic and powerful material where we only deal with physicality that defines the essential movements."

KEEP IN TOUCH: A MASTERCLASS WITH SIMONE & CREATIVES
SATURDAY, 25 February 2017 | 1.00pm - 3.00pm | JWCOCA The Shopfront
Drawing on central themes and process from (To) Come and See, this Masterclass explores the notion of touch. During this process participants will share their practice and explore a scale of qualities and intentions through touch, working on empathy and dissolving identities. By connecting in this manner, we enter into another time, suspended, shared led by our curiosity and intuition. What is touch, how do we touch and the intimate impact of touch. Dig deeper into one of our key senses in this tactile and responsive experience.
The workshop is open for professionals and dancers of all skill levels. No technical background is needed. Please wear comfortable clothing you can move in.
Duration: 2 hrs
