The workshop is designed for constant movement exploration and activation of the body in space. It is intended to be both physically and creatively rigorous. Please consider this aspect of the workshop before submitting your application. Instruction will take place primarily in English however the overall workshop is designed as a non-verbal experience.
The workshop will be structured into three learning situations:
Performance Training Classes
Morning sessions will consist of a 2-hour hybrid training class, alternating daily between:
MB: Muscle - Bone is dedicated to body training and spatial preparation for performance. The sessions are designed to be fast paced, physically rigorous and are
structured for participants to experience full expansion of their external body in the space.
MB: Mind - Body sessions follow a similar spatial format of Muscle - Bone, but consists entirely of improvisational movement for training the imagination, how to utilize it freely within a performance training environment.
Both training classes conclude with a series of specific stretching and relaxation exercises concerned with breathing and alignment. The work is practiced in pairs or small groups, exchanging passive and active roles.
Choreographic Research Sessions
Afternoon sessions will operate as a research forum; workshop participants will experience specific exercises, improvisation and performance techniques from Dance, Body Weather and Performance Art. Drawing together these distinct influences, the workshop will explore hybrid training developed by Charles Koroneho, the generation of choreographic material and devising for solo performance.
Exercises are designed to sharpen focus and develop a diverse range of expression through the body. The work encompasses sensitivity training, structured improvisations and specific techniques for developing a body of internal landscapes, persona and characterizations by the use of imagery, developing the presence of the internal body within a performance workshop environment.
On the final day of the workshop, participants will work with Charles Koroneho, Alejandro Ronceria and Brad Gledhill to collaborate and transform the workshop environment into a performance venue. It is the intention of the workshop that the performance presentation is site specific and experimental. Open to the public.
La science en débats
Lac-Mégantic: sommes-nous tous coupables? C’est avec cette question provocante que trois organismes québécois de culture scientifique lancent une expérience: ESCARMOUCHES – La science en débats.
Au moins six fois au cours de la prochaine année, nous organiserons un débat, construit autour d’une question d’actualité et de textes offrant un matériau pour la réflexion.
Bien que les forums de discussion sur Internet ne manquent pas, on n’en trouve pas encore qui, en français, soient spécifiquement dévolus à des débats de fond, en sciences ou en sciences sociales.
Joignez-vous à la conversation. Et faites passer le mot parmi vos collègues et amis!
ESCARMOUCHES est une collaboration de l’Agence Science-Presse, de l’Association francophone pour le savoir – Acfas, et de Québec Science.
