Residency 2 – 6 May

Sheila Macdougall

Shoeboxes (Working Title)

Sheila will use this residency to explore material generated in a previous Dance Base residency, considering questions such as: How do we organise our space, thoughts, memories, lives, bodies, and material possessions? How do we take a lifetime of experience and distil it into an essence that is recognisable to a viewer? How are meanings conveyed minimally and succinctly?

With co-creator and director/choreographer Merav Israel, musician/composer/sound artist Alex Mackay, and numerous shoeboxes we will investigate how to pare down already accumulated material by exploring the sequencing, integration and interdependence of all the performance elements – movement, space, text, objects, music, sound – to create meaningful segments as part of a solo.

Company Class: Thursday 5 May 10.00-11.30

An improvisation class based on Viewpoints with a focus on presence in body and mind. Open to all.

Company Showing: Friday 6 May 17.00
