Event description

Description

Charlie Morrissey is joining Ludus Dance to deliver a day-long practical workshop sharing his experience of site-specific dance practice. Charlie makes work for sites using the visceral and three-dimensional nature of the environment he is in. Each environment is unique and each performance brings large numbers of people – performers and audiences together to celebrate a connection.

Charlie Morrissey creates live performance on a variety of scales and in diverse contexts. He devises and directs large and small scale pieces in different landscapes; on the shoreline, in the sea, on rivers, in fields, on cliffs, in the street, in parks and in all types of buildings, ranging from a castle to a glass house. He has directed and collaborated on performances with professionals, students and people with little or no formal dance or performance training. The pieces he has created range from elaborate installations with complex sets, costumes, lighting, pyrotechnics and large casts, through to very intimate solo, duet and small group performances in informal settings with little or no technical or production requirements.

This workshop is a great opportunity for you to:

  • Diversify your practice as a dance artist

  • Learn how to craft in response to the context of the landscape

  • Explore your relationship with the outdoors

We work to support dance industry professionals across the North West and while we don’t want to charge for these workshops we do ask for a donation if you’d like to attend.
