November 9th: Ivey Wawn 

Class: Ivey will lead participants through a series of exercises for cultivating feeling as an approach to dancing. Class will involve both the transmission of learned sequences and some opportunities for independent improvisation. Seeing as it is a class primarily aimed at independent dancers, for whom there are few opportunities for refining expertise outside of projects, Ivey will try to make moments for honing our skills, or touching gently on general 'technique'.

Bio: Ivey Wawn is a dancer living and working primarily on Gadigal Land. She works mostly as a dancer in the work of other artists and sometimes also makes her own work that takes different forms; from lecture, through video, to live performance. Such works are presented in art galleries, virtual spaces and theatres. 

November 16th: Anton

Class: ADVANZ DANZ PRANZ, for industry dancers, is a joyful dance contemporary class that is a mix of facilitated body explorations and set movement materials. We together build, reach, stretch, roll, travel, fall, extend and fly.

November 23rd: David Huggins

Class: In this class, David will share some ideas through an exploration of simple movement phrases and structured improvisations, encouraging a focus on ease, pleasure and agency. 

Bio: David Huggins is a dancer and sometimes-choreographer. He began dancing while completing his psychology degree in Aotearoa New Zealand. After graduating from the Victorian College of the Arts, he worked with Russell Dumas’ Dance Exchange in Melbourne, performing nationally and internationally with the company. David has also worked for other artists including Douglas Wright, Xavier Le Roy, Rhiannon Newton and Martin Del Amo and has more recently begun following his own choreographic interests through various collaborative projects.

November 30th: Emma Saunders

Class: All The Suns Might Shine At Once

" For this one off class we might walk, stand, roll, talk, live a little, die a little and cry a little. Let's then choreograph that all together to develop a little one off banger of a sequence that leaves us all lost yet found, sweaty yet dry, performing yet not performing, hiding not hiding, and practicing being seen with or without content, with or without context. Let's give it a go!! All artists welcome! 

 

Bio: Emma Saunders is an Australian dance artist. Her work is visceral, instinctive and immediate, often working with humour, everyday movement, text, repetition, deconstruction, duration and abstraction.
