This call out is on behalf of Dance Artist Clare Parker, who is being supported by our Space to Play project.
Are you a female dancer based in Devon and age 40 – 100?
Would you like to get into the studio and spend some time in creative process?
If so we would love to hear from you!
Still Point Dance Theatre are a newly formed collaborative group currently doing research and development on a new piece for touring in 2019 exploring memory and ageing. We are an intergenerational group with ages ranging from 21 to 84. The piece ‘for your age’ is based on personal stories told by Elizabeth Janis aged 89. We have created 10 minutes exploring memories of journeys, loss, and dancing, which we performed at Exeter Northcott in Feb 2018. Dance in Devon are supporting us through a micro-residency in June 2018, and on Monday 11th June we would like to open up our process to a wider network of older dancers. The day will include a dance warm up, followed by movement tasks including partner work, creatively exploring the themes and building to small moments of sharing.
We would like to connect with older dancers who have an interest in this theme, in creative movement and in devising choreographic material. If possible we would like people to join us for the whole day (9am to 5pm) but we understand this may not be possible practically and energetically. We will be open to whatever you can offer on the day in terms of time, energy and creativity. The day will be led by Clare Parker – an experienced dance practitioner and older dancer herself, not unused to the aches, pains and asymmetries of an older body – who will work inclusively so that dancers feel supported to engage in a way that suits their bodies.
This is an unpaid position but lunch and a nice time will be provided! Please contact Clare Parker by Mon 4th June on 07730 065150 or email email@example.com to find out more.
