Body connection/linking duets and trios (started in week 1)
Walking Patterns to improvise with
The main phrase (taught by Beth)
Extension of main phrase - "arm bit" (only learnt by some dancers)
School of fish identity phrases (two group phrases)
Role solos (made from the thought shower and our list of roles in the community)
Over the last two sessions we have been remembering, recapping, rehearsing and refining this material and then experimenting with how we perform it. With the main phrase we have been trying out different facings in the room, starting and stopping at different points and playing with how dancers relate to each other.
We are very excited that Sabio Janiak, an incredible musician has agreed to write a section of our music for us. Have a look at his work: http://www.sabiomusic.com/
Finally, we are very grateful to Lee Smikle (Artistic Director of Shoreditch Youth Dance and Artist in Residence at Richmix) for supporting Arts Odyssey and for organising for us to perform at Richmix. Shoreditch Youth Dance Company have a performance coming up on Friday 22 and Saturday 23 July 2011. I recommend you get there if you can!
Have a look:
So, until next week - start rounding the troops for our performance on Sunday 31st July. It should be a treat and at a cost of FREE it is a steal!
Jumping over and dancing out......
