In this series of 4 all-day sessions we will continue the work of making Solos and delve specifically into the issue of space : the poetics of space and what can be communicated through this medium.
How to sense space, to integrate it into the dancing and composing and to arrange it to the advantage of our performances.
Individual areas will include : radial and Cartesian space / placement onstage / the dynamics of space / how space effects the public’s reception of dance and theatre work.
Julyen has been making dances, directing and teaching for the past 40 years. He was born in England, then lived in Amsterdam and is now based in Girona in northern Spain. Trained in a period of experimentation in London in the mid-70s , Julyen has constantly made work from a radical point of view. His work, both in company and solo, develops dance for the theatre - a place where an atmosphere of transformation, insight and understanding is permitted without resort to thin conclusions. In this ambience dancers and light designer are directed to compose pieces instantly; we practise a process of improvisation in rehearsal and in the moment of performance. These are refined skills; they are a way of tunnelling down into ourselves with the light of spontaneity and producing material. This material is fresh to the intelligence of the moment and also linked to the months years and epochs that it has been gestating in the individual and the individual's history.
