Following the success of last season’s Rotate we are running another series of Performance Parkour sessions at Woking Gymnastics Club each Friday evening starting Friday 7 October 8pm – 9.30pm until Friday 2 December. The course will run for 7 sessions, each session lasting 1.5 hours. During May half term some of the group took part in a 2-day intensive, which led to this group performing in The Urban Playground Team’s piece STEAM. We are keen to build on this activity and if there is enough interest will run another 2-day workshop in October half term linked to an in-door performance.
About: The Urban Playground Team perform and teach Performance-Parkour or 2PK . Their teaching is inclusive with an emphasis on ability, not disability working with students of all ages, specialising in working with young people at-risk of social exclusion. Performance-Parkour or 2PK is the integration of Parkour’s movement principles and core values within a performance for an audience, whether live or recorded. It can be considered a choreographic language. Critical to Performance-Parkour is the aim of communicating beyond the skill of the discipline and creating a dialogue with and within its practitioner community and audience. It does not describe a display or demonstration of Parkour.
