Marina Collard

Morning class | 26 - 30 October 2020 | Studio & online

The class is an invitation to re-orient ourselves while negotiating and integrating redefined proximities and modes of practice. Whether physically or virtually present, we will start with attending to anatomical awareness, developing an enquiry as a way of paying attention to ourselves within our own contexts. Attention will be paid to how we meet ourselves in the act of landing and listening through both moving and stilling. Scores will be used as a way of establishing patterns of movement we can return to, as solo material and in relationship to others. The aim is to be playful and rigorous in our moving, allowing each participant to expand their choices in the articulation of emergent material.

Marina is an independent artist working as a performer, choreographer and teacher. Her work is collaborative, working with dancer artists, film makers and composers. She had a rich, long-term creative partnership with film maker Tom Paine, making a number of solo and group works performed in galleries and theatres in the UK and abroad. A number of these works involve sound artist Paul Newland as an ongoing collaborator. Paul works with Marina as part of The Container Movement Research, a space for artists to practice, play and respond to current and emergent interests. Most recent is the development of Area 7073, with Henrietta Hale, which involves working with video in the choreographic configuring of making activity which goes unnoticed, noticeable.

Marina has performed with Dog Kennel Hill Project, Siobhan Davies Dance Company, Carol Brown Dances, CandoCo Dance Company, Joe Moran, Florence Peake, Claire Twomey, Carolyn Roy among others. She has extensive teaching experience in professional and educational settings both nationally and internationally, most recently with Mandeep Raikhy at Gati Dance in Delhi, and she regularly teaches release-based technique and choreography at Trinity Laban Conservatoire for Music and Dance.
