An Uprising Insights Day with Hofesh Shechter Company

Monday, 22 Jun 2015 10am - 4:30pm

  • 19 spaces available.

“Hofesh Shechter’s Uprising landed like a sucker punch in the contemporary dance scene….full of testosterone and confrontation, it was a powerful, visceral work…” Lyndsey Winship, The Times 2009

Uprising, created in 2006 was Hofesh Shechter’s breakthrough work for 7 men and is still performed around the world today - currently in the repertoire of both Alvin Ailey Company and Nederlands Dans Theater. Over the years teachers and students have enjoyed studying this seminal piece that, in Hofesh’s own words, is about “…boys’ energy, boys’ mentality, boys’ behaviour… the idea of playing and fighting…of liking to play and to fight….of how fun it is to be part of a war.”

Working in partnership with Stephen Mason (Dance Tutor, Lewisham Southwark College) we are delighted to offer this Insights Day of study. Join Stephen, Bruno Guillore, Associate Artistic Director and original cast member in Uprising, and other company dancers to look at Uprising in the context of a piece for study.

The day will include a full warm up, repertoire, insights into the creation of the piece, examples of how the work lends itself to study, Uprising-based tasks and discussion time.

This Insights Day is suitable for teachers (GCSE, A Level, BTEC & HND courses) and dance practitioners looking to enrich their delivery or those looking for new ideas for choreography with young people.

Date : Monday 22nd June 2015
10am – 4.30pm
