We’re looking for performers, boys and young men aged 14-18, for movement and choreography workshops with Studio Wayne McGregor.
Studio Wayne McGregor is the creative engine for choreographer and director Wayne McGregor CBE, and the home of his life-long enquiry into thinking through and with the body. It is a nexus of partners who explore movement, artistry, thought and partnership. With Wayne at its centre, this collaborative network encompasses dancers, writers, composers, producers, software engineers, visual artists, scientists and more.
The workshops will create a choreography routine in response to the new public artwork ‘Parsloes Memphis’ by artist Eva Rothschild. This work – a public playground – will be made up of vibrantly coloured geometric cubes, embedded with opportunities to activate self-directed play. “Sculpture as a playground should be activated through the body, through movement , irreverence, imagination and joy.” – Eva Rothschild
The programme will begin with a series of taster sessions to introduce participants to the themes and content of the work, followed by a week-long explorative movement and choreography workshop.
Tuesday 20 July, 4-6pm
Thursday 22 July, 7-9pm
Tuesday 27 July, 4-6pm
Thursday 29 July, 7-9pm
Main Programme will run from Monday 2 August – Saturday 7 August, 11am – 4pm.
