MASTER CLASS- Oona Doherty rep.

Exklusivt gästspel

8 oktober 2023

Contemporary dance workshop with Joseph Simon around the performance ‘Navy Blue’ by Oona Doherty. In collaboration with Elverket/Dansenshus.

In this workshop you will dive into the work and practises of Oona Doherty, specific to her creation ‘Navy Blue’, through the experience of performer Joseph Simon.
In the first part of the workshop, we will warm up together and learn repertoire from the first half of the piece, which can be described as a type of contemporary ballet infused with dread. Then, we will move through a range of practises of improvisation and guided physical states, used during the creation process as well as on stage by the performers to feed the third section of the piece. This will include some clowning work as well as physical states of falling and receiving impulses ( ‘strings’ ) from the cosmos. We will conclude the workshop with a longer session, in which the participants will have time to dwell in this state and dive deeper into everything we touched on.
