Participant wanted for 'Under The Vaulted Sky'Opportunities for Dance Artists

15th March 2024 - 23rd July 2014


£Free


Wanted: Performers and dancers of all abilities aged 9+ to get involved with 'Under The Vaulted Sky' - a large-scale outdoor performance involving a cast of 100 dancers.

'Under The Vaulted Sky' is being created by award-winning choreographer Rosemary Lee for IF: Milton Keynes International Festival.

Rosemary has been inspired by Milton Keynes’ magical Cathedral of Trees to create this new dance performance, and is now looking for 100 participants of all ages and experience from the area to join her small team of professional dancers.

'Under The Vaulted Sky' will have its world premiere over the first weekend (18 - 20 July) of the 10-day International Festival.

The spacious and green Cathedral of Trees in Newlands was planted more than 40 years ago with different trees and plant species representing architectural features.

Whatever your age and experience, this will be an opportunity to work with professional artists to create and perform in a unique, quality performance within a unique outdoor setting.

In addition, participation offers experience of working and performing on camera (a recording of the performance will be made).

Although the most important requirement for this project is to love moving and dancing, it would be useful - though not essential - if participants have had some experience of dance, movement or performing in public.

Participants must be able to take part in a series of workshops and rehearsals from April to July 2014, following taster workshops in March.

INTERACTIVE ARTS WITH ISADORA SOFTWAREProfessional Development

22nd July 2014 - 25th July 2014


£350


This four day intensive workshop with jamie griffiths is specifically designed as a fast-track entry into interactive performance design, using Isadora Software as the basis of a modular control system that expands to include other third party softwares.

The workshop is frequently updated to include new developments such as Syphon video streaming, Infra Red & Kinect cameras for motion tracking and special effects. Third party softwares that offer significant advantages are also incorporated into the workshop, such as OSCulator (Mac), JunXion (Mac) and GlovePie (PC).

Whether you are a visual artist creating museum installations, vj, dj, singer, musician, lighting designer, performance artist, choreographer or filmmaker, the workshop frees you up from perceived programming limitations offering the skills needed to experiment with interactive live performance designs using Isadora software.

The LAB Summer Intensives - Week TwoDance Classes

11th August 2014 - 16th August 2014


£360.00


The LAB Summer Intensives 2014 are taking place in the beautiful studios of The Royal Ballet School in London's Covent Garden.

Each of the six-day courses (Monday - Saturday) will give you the unique opportunity to experience a taste of life as a professional dancer! During the week our amazing faculty will take you through Pilates based warm-ups, company class, pointe work, men's virtuosity and... most importantly... repertoire!

We're going to be levelling the groups for each of these 6 day courses, so even if you're a little rusty on remembering your pile from your pirouette we'll have a group that will guide you clearly through everything that you need to know before leaping up on stage at the end of the week!

In addition to our slower speed group there'll be a medium group too for those who want to work a little faster... and if you're a more experienced dancer, our pro group will be on hand to push you with pointework and even some pas de deux!

All of your hard work will be rehearsed together into a performance, which will be open to your friends and families to watch for free in the gorgeous studio theatre at The Royal Ballet School at the end of the final day.

During the week there will also be the opportunity to socialise with the other dancers on the course and to visit one of London's theatres for a group trip to see a dance performance (tickets will be available to book through London Amateur Ballet at an additional cost - normally around £30 per person)

The Monday session will be working en-pointe and in addition to your 30 minute technical warm up you'll be tackling solos and trying to put as much of the technique on pointe as possible. You can also take this session if you want to take the technical warm up on pointe but then learn the solo rep on the flat.

The Tuesday class is open to ladies and gentlemen, and we'll have solos for you all! You'll have a 30 minute technical warm up and then spend and hour learning and perfecting your solo repertoire. This is an open level class so please come along and try it out for size! (no absolute beginners please... we're hoping to have a session for you in September though so join our mailing list now!)
