Class Teacher and Description:

June 28, July 5 : Martin del Amo

Description: Martin’s class starts with a rigorous, Body Weather-inspired warm up, which focuses on sensitising spatial and speed-related awareness, as well as heightening coordination skills and physical fitness. The second half of the class is dedicated to the exploration of a series of  improvisational and compositional scores. The focus will be on improvisation within predetermined structures and the interplay between movement and stillness.

Bio: Martin del Amo is a Sydney-based choreographer and dancer with more than 25 years of professional experience. He started out as solo artist, acclaimed for his full-length solos fusing idiosyncratic movement and intimate storytelling. Over the last decade, Martin has also built a strong reputation as creator of group works and solos for others. He regularly teaches and has extensively worked as mentor, dramaturg, movement consultant and dance writer. Martin’s contributions to the Australian arts sector have been recognised with the prestigious Sidney Myer Creative Fellowship (2015) and the Australian Dance Award for Outstanding Achievement in Independent Dance (2018). 

June 7,14, 21 : Victoria Hunt & Moe Clark

DescriptionProprioception Listening:

Drawing on Body Weather & Sounding Bodies, together we examine the inherent relationships between space-time, predator-prey and sensing-knowing. Working between inner and outer listening, bodies become sensory fields of energetic potential. Through image flows and sensitivity provocations we traverse thresholds of visible, invisible and imagined realms.

led by Weather Beings, Victoria Hunt (director, choreographer, dancer) and Moe Clark (sound designer, vocalist, educator).

May 10 : Alice Weber

Description: This class takes rupture as a choreographic prompt, exploring the moment of pressurised release across borders both physical and symbolic. Where we are often choreographically confined to the kinaesthetic plateau of scrolling and strolling ad infinitum; rupture is an attempt to break through the thresholds that contain bodies.

 

Bio: Alice is a dancer working with choreography, performance and discursive outputs. Using and misusing her various training backgrounds across ballet, somatic practice and critical dance studies, Alice’s work considers contemporary embodiments and intimacies, through questions of agency and desire. 

May 17, 24, 31: Lee Serle

Description: Lee's class begins with mapping the body and mobilising the joints to allow for efficient movement pathways with the application of weight and momentum. Following this we will focus on oppositional coordination exercises finding differing points of initiation and dynamic redirection in preparation for complex movement phrases.

Bio: Lee Serle is a Sydney based choreographer and performer. He graduated from the Victorian College of the Arts with a Bachelor of Dance in 2003. His work has been presented in France, USA, Colombia, Lebanon and Australia, and he has been commissioned to create new works for the Lyon Opera Ballet, Sydney Dance Company, Lucy Guerin Inc, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA), Dancenorth, Victorian College of the Arts, and Colombian visual artist Mateo López. Lee has performed in the works of many notable choreographers including; Trisha Brown, Lucy Guerin, Tere O’Connor, Gideon Obarzanek, Shelley Lasica, among many others, and has received Fellowships from Rolex Arts Institute, Australia Council for the Arts (Creative Australia Fellowship) and City of Sydney.
