Public workshops Trisha Brown repertoire with Diane Madden - January 13 & 20

PARTS organises two workshops on the repertoire of Trisha Brown, which are open to professional dancers and dancers in a fulltime professional training program.

The workshops are taught by Diane Madden, who has been one of the iconic dancers in the Trisha Brown Company, performing with them bewteen 1980 and 2010, and currently also artistic director of the company.

Saturday January 13 - Line Up (1976) and Set and Reset (1983)
A technical warm up will establish connections within the body that are then brought into a dynamic relationship to others and the space. Improvisational practice will serve as a way to integrate multiple levels of awareness. Simple, playful rule game structures from Line Up will be realized to establish a foundation understanding of composition. Then phrase material from Set and Reset will be brought into play with a focus on movement legibility and cause and effect ensemble dancing.
A choice selection from the TBDC archive will be shown.

Saturday January 20- Opal Loop (1980)
A technical warm up will establish connections within the body that are then brought into a dynamic relationship to others and the space. Improvisational practice will serve as a way to integrate multiple levels of awareness. Phrase material from Opal Loop will serve as a vehicle for dancing with each other. We’ll play with juxtaposing phrase material and explore close proximity dancing. New material will be generated from the shared use of verbal movement instructions. Smaller dances will be crafted using these “Instructions” phrases.
A choice selection from the TBDC archive will be shown.

For whom? The workshops are open to professional dancers and dance students in a fulltime professional traiinng program. Minimum age is 17.
Price: 50 euro per Saturday
Practicalities:
The workshops take place in the studios of Rosas, Av. Van Volxem 164 1190 Brussels. They go from 10 until 17h, with one hour lunch break.
