Create in partnership with Dublin Dance Festival with support from the British Council, May 23, 2011, 11am-1pm
Location: Centre for Creative Practices, Lower Pembroke Street, Dublin
This workshop is aimed at emerging and professional dance artists, and arts practitioners of all disciplines with no dance background, who wish to develop their understanding of composition by transferring ideas, thoughts and skills from classical Indian dance. Led by Balbir Singh, the focus will be on raising participants’ awareness of the language of rhythm, hand gesture and story-telling, among other aspects of Kathak dance. The workshop will provide a platform to address multidisciplinary and cross-cultural collaborative processes.
Participants will have the opportunity to attend Balbir Singh’s performance, Decreasing Infinity, at Project Arts Centre, Cube on Sunday 22, prior to the workshop. Tickets for the workshop and performance are €25.00
"The emergence of Balbir Singh Dance Company onto the national and international stage comes at a time when our understanding of cultural identities is undergoing profound change at all levels of society and in all realms; the economic, the personal and the social as well as the artistic. This general unravelling of previously accepted categories has led to new forms of expression and new modes of discourse, especially in the arts where practitioners seek to express themselves in ways that reflect the transcultural reality of their experience"
As part of our organisational remit to support continuing professional development, Create schedules a number of workshops annually. Workshops are offered to associates at a reduced fee. For information on becoming an associate please click here.
