Description:

Winlab Festival 2011
The Choir Project | 5-9 December 2011, 11am-5pm (to 7pm on Fri 9)
For 20 dancers. Application deadline 21 October 2011

Choreographer Jonathan Burrows and composer Matteo Fargion lead a project to create a performance in 5 days, for a choir of 20 dancers. The group will work intensively on a series of scores  for movement, words and music, looking at composition and performance, and asking always how a dance might be made and what it could communicate to somebody watching. The resulting event will be presented on the final day.

This workshop is open to anybody interested and participants will be selected through an application process. Please send a short expression of interest as to why you would like to participate in this project and a short biog to fiona@independentdance.co.uk. Deadline for applications is 21 October.

'There are few performers who can hold an audience captive like this double act… the timing of every note, shrug, laugh and gesture is awesome. Five stars.' The Guardian, London, on Cheap Lecture and The Cow Piece

Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion have attracted an international reputation for a series of duets created since 2002, beginning with ‘Both Sitting Duet’, and followed by ‘The Quiet Dance’, ‘Speaking Dance’, Cheap Lecture’, ‘The Cow Piece’ and ‘Counting To One Hundred’.
