A Workshop with Matthias Sperling

part of Charlie Morrisey's curated programme for Movement 12

This workshop with Matthias Sperling will explore the performance games that form part of 'Do Not Be Afraid' (a piece with Matthias Sperling and Rachel Krische, being shown at the Basement at 7.30pm on Saturday 10th September),as well as how the development of those games was sparked by his interest in the work of American choreographer Deborah Hay and the relationship between our minds and bodies. The games and tasks will allow participants to challenge themselves at their own pace, and all levels of experience are welcome.

Matthias Sperling is an Associate Artist with Dance4 and winner of a Bonnie Bird New Choreography Award. Recent works have included commissions for Southbank Centre and Dance Umbrella London, and have been presented at international festivals including Springdance (Netherlands), Nottdance (UK), Les Repérages (France), and Royal Opera House Firsts (UK). Originally from Canada, Matthias has been based in the UK since 1997, where he has collaborated and performed with companies including Wayne McGregor’s Random Dance, Matthew Bourne’s Adventures in Motion Pictures, and Siobhan Davies Dance. His recent projects include To hand, a new work co-created with Siobhan Davies, set within artist Claire Barclay’s sculptural installation Shadow Spans at Whitechapel Gallery, London. He also recently completed a new interactive installation: Thought Dance, which uses EEG brain scanning technology to explore the notion of thought as a physical movement.

Improvisation Workshop - exploring movement and vocal expression

with Kate Hilder & Seke Chimutengwende

This workshop is open to every body, whether you are interested in experimenting with new ways of expressing yourself or are a performer wanting develop your physical and vocal vocabulary – all are welcome.

Through practising simple improvisational exercises, in solo and with partners, we will open doors to the creative potential of our body and voice. We will explore how our sensory experience and our feelings can be material for improvising and discover the many choices that become available when we pay attention to the details of our physicality, rhythm, pitch and patterns in space. We will develop skills in listening, responding and collaborating with our partners and have opportunities to watch each other as we practise.

Kate is a certified teacher of Action Theater™, a form of physical theatre improvisation, pioneered by Ruth Zaporah. She has been teaching classes in London and Brighton for the past 8 years (www.katehilder.com). Seke studied at London Contemporary Dance School and went on to work as a performer with companies such as DV8 Physical Theatre and Lost Dog. He regularly teaches for Independent Dance, Greenwich Dance and London Contemporary Dance School.

This Way Up

Marisa Zanotti and Charlie Morrissey

Marisa Zanotti and Charlie Morrissey will be spending two weeks in August developing ideas for a 3D film. The film will be made for, and sited in a box, to be viewed from above.

On the final day of their two-week research period, they will open up the process for others to come and participate in.

The session will include an informal presentation about what they’ve been doing, as well as a practical session with participants contributing to the making process.

For practitioners and other people who are interested in having a window into, and making a contribution towards, someone else’s making process.

Marisa Zanotti began her career in dance, training at the Laban Centre and working extensively as a dancer and choreographer. Since receiving a Creative Scotland Award in 2000, Marisa’s professional practice has been in screenwork installation, dance film and most recently film drama. She has directed three short dramas and produced and directed four dance films and a video installation; her current interest in dance for the screen lies in the area of experimental and lo-fi work. She is developing a new screen drama project with writer Nichola McCartney and also works as part of a writer/director team with David Greig. Their first short film,“At the end of the sentence” received BAFTA and BIFA nominations and won the UK Film Council Audience Award and Best Short at The Hamptons Film Festival. Marisa is a trustee of South East Dance. Her doctoral research entails examining the critical implications of her practice.

Parade Protest Perform

A Pink Fringe presentation

Glitter, a whistle, a rainbow flag - what does our Pride Parade mean? A banner, a placard, a loudspeaker - what is there left to protest about?

Pink Fringe presents Parade Protest Perform, a performance trail through Brighton that sets the queer heart of the city beating across the Pride weekend. A rebellious dancer, a surreal performance artist, a living legend of queer theatre and an intellectual bearded drag queen are playfully provocative about what Pride means in 2011 in their own parade through the streets.

Co-produced with The Nightingale
