MEAT AND BONE - THE FARM

This contemporary technique class teaches the dancer how to gain maximum power in movement with minimal effort through the use of momentum.

Through the exhaustive nature of the class there is a discovery of the body’s natural movement and a desire to arrive somewhere through the path of least resistance.

Based on a systematic and relentless series of movements that travel down the room, you are learning through doing and bypassing the time and luxury of questioning.

This class is a workout where your own body will become the greatest teacher and where your physical individuality will not be discarded.

main stage performace - The crossing as part of Forecast

The Crossing explores the desire for self expression from two different artists and the meeting point between them.

Kayah, a young man with Down Syndrome, uses dance to express the way he sees the world and the way the world sees him. With the support of his mentor, choreographer Gavin Webber, Kayah wants to say he is strong, he is masculine, and he is sexual. He also wants people to know he is vulnerable and “not always happy”.

The Crossing examines the unique bond that exists between these two men and the way it has been forged through the language of dance and improvisation. It has been created by Kayah and Gavin to reflect their common interests and their differences. Together they have created a space where they can dance, laugh, wrestle, die and be reborn, become monsters, connect and collide and ultimately negotiate their mutual desire to communicate with each other and everyone else.
