Ellen Bartel

Residency 16 – 20 February
Ellen Bartel Dance Collective
new work
I am Ellen Bartel from Austin, TX, I wish to use my time at this residency to develop a practice I am calling ‘Devising non-fiction dance’; that is, inventing movement from text and memory for an alternative space (or theatre) with the purpose of telling an autobiographical story through dance. All of the elements mesh together in ways that create both a conventionally linear story and a collage, for maximum creative impact and meaning.

I am seeking dancers to work with me throughout the week in exploring ‘Devising non-fiction dance’; if you are interested in being involved please get in touch: ellen.bartel@ebdc.us

Company Class
Tuesday 17 February 10.00-11.30
Class will be a meshing of Int/Adv technique class and devising movement from improvisation.

Freeview Friday 20 February 16.00
