Alesandra Seutin (Vocab Dance) - Acogny Technique/African Contemporary with live drummer

Conceived by Germaine Acogny, “the mother of African contemporary dance”, the Acogny technique is the only codified and recognised contemporary dance technique created in Africa.

“The body, the timing, the inner and external rhythm. The freedom of the body through discipline - that’s Germaine Acogny’s Technique”

The Acogny technique is a African Contemporary dance technique, a synthesis of traditional African dance (specially Senegal and Benin) and Western dance techniques (classical ballet, release- and Graham technique). Vocab Dance founder Alesandra Seutin add to it, her essence, power, grounding and infectious energy.
This workshop will devellop dancers fluidity, power, connection with self and others, musicality, dynamics, grace and placement within their own bodies.
Alesandra is the first and only UK based dancer to have obtained the diploma in Acogny technique by Germaine Acogny, at the École des Sables, Senegal.

Kristina & Sade Alleyne (Akram Khan) – Dynamic Contemporary

A physical Contemporary Class which will involve strong, complex technical sequences in and out of the floor, focusing on performance/stamina and commitment throughout the session, improvisation will also be explored as part of self development.
The significant factors for the workshop is to develop the dancers creative mind, drive from passion, determination, strength, musicality and most importantly an intention/honesty in whatever choice they make throughout the session.
Their style has been inspired and development from working with the likes of Akram Khan (fusion of Kathak and Contemporary Dance), Retina Dance Company (Release and Contact Work), Gregory Maqoma (Afro-Fusion Dance) and Henri Oguike (Classical Contemporary Dance based on Forstyle and Cunningham techniques).

19th March 2015


£16 (£12 concessions)


"Hagit Yakira and her company don't only dance, they live and take the audience with them." Audience member

...in the middle with you is a poignant piece, delving into the very nature of human experience. At times heart-warmingly light and playful, at times stark and deeply entrancing, the choreography moves us in very personal ways. Music, and a cast of five dancers lures us in with personal stories of love, friendship, loss and life, energy and physicality, to travel to a more muted and abstract experience that becomes highly intimate. Uplifting and inspiring ...in the middle with you makes an emotional poem of everyday life.

Karen Nelson Contact Improvisation IntensiveProfessional Development

24th April 2015 - 25th April 2015


£130full/£100 Concession


Unimagiable~Flow~Resonance
This intensive traces the development of Contact Improvisation from before it was imaginable through the discovery of flow and onwards towards resonance. Each dancer's body is a map of this territory no matter when you joined the evolution. How do you experience your contribution to the form? Unimaginable: attending the sensations of falling and reflex, ranging from standing to moving with momentum both solo and with a partner. Flow: sustaining connection without losing the fresh taste of gravity and solo autonomy, discovering "the third thing". Resonance: Inner and outer spiralling, puzzles of the spine, expanding into space and using gravity's kind support to fly.
