Act Creation

Vertical Dance Lab

/ with Lindsey Butcher (2019)

Together we’ll explore the rigging and dancing possibilities offered up in using the facade of the An Grianan theatre. It’s a creative lab where we’ll work towards sharing some of our findings on the final Saturday to kick off the evenings performance. Expect some flying around on pillars, interacting with the architectural delights of the building and to be dangling outside under the Irish Summer sun – what could possibly go wrong?! Bring sun cream and wet weather gear.

Please note this is a two week class, with a performance on Sat 6th July 2019.

LIMIT: This class is mutually exclusive with Group Hoop, Spiral Lab, and Chantal’s Creation Lab. Only one of these classes per person, sorry.


Act Creation Performance Lab

/ with Chantal McCormick (2018)

This is for participants with strong technical experience on one aerial apparatus, trapeze, fabric, hoop and rope to arrive with a short sequence of material that you are very comfortable with. NB If you wish to bring your own equipment to rig for this class we will do our best to accommodate that.

Come with an open mind and heart to play, explore and share as a group, open to supporting each other in a safe creative environment. Chantal will use theatre games and choreographic exercises to help develop aerial material, focusing on how to express emotions and play with scale on aerial equipment. Our goal is to create ease of moving in and out of the floor and up and off the equipment and conveying your story to the audience. The end result is not important, more emphasis on process, although as a group the focus is to create a piece to be performed as part of the Emma Insley cabaret night. Please make sure you are free for the last Saturday of the festival. Please bring a note pad and pen/pencil with you.

Please note this is a two week class, with a performance on Sat 6th July 2019.

LIMIT: This class is mutually exclusive with Group Hoop, Vertical Dance Lab, and Spiral Lab. Only one of these classes per person, sorry.
