Julyen Hamilton - Winlab 2012

Category: WinterLab (Winlab)

Workshop 26-30 November | Mon-Fri | 11am-5pm 

Making dances: the SPACE issue

Julyen Hamilton's teaching investigates deeply the creative act and the technique needed to accompany and facilitate it.

His vision of technique is one which observes how things are made, how they function and how knowledge, experience and intuition can be used to create the work we each need to make.

It naturally enters the worlds of physiology, philosophy, culture, imagination and the future.

This workshop considers and practices the essential nature of the SPACE in which choreography and dance can be made and performed.

It penetrates the themes of radial and Cartesian space and how they affect the moving body and the theatrical space where audience and performer meet.

In recent years the compositional elements of major concern have been time space, dramaturgy, music and the voice;  they stem from his experience as a dancer who creates and organises material instantly before the public.

The basic work is the handling of the body and the 'speaking' from it in space, motion and time.

Its co-ordination and its relationship to the material it creates - and then to the sharing of it in performance.

His ability to distil and convey essential principles allows dancers from a wide range of backgrounds to engage in his methodology.
