Week 1 & 2
Performance Lab to Act Creation – Intermediate Upwards
This is for participants with a good to strong technical experience on one aerial apparatus: trapeze, fabric, rope and hoop and you should arrive with a short sequence of material that you are very comfortable with.
NB If you wish to bring your own equipment that you want to work on, where at all possible we will try to rig it in the studio.
Come with an open mind and heart to play, explore and share as a group and open to supporting each other to create 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. Chantal supports you throughout the session and helps you develop your own creative voice as an artist
Our goal is to create ease of moving in and out of the floor and up and off the equipment, connecting your individual story with the audience.
Please bring a notebook and pen/pencil with you. Chantal has been teaching this type of lab for almost 10 years as part of the IADF and 4 at the Creative Intensive course in IACC in Ireland.
If you decide to create a solo during the week there will be an opportunity to perform it on the evening of Saturday 17th August in the theatre. You can however just come to the class to experience the process and develop your ideas – performing is optional.
NB If you have a specific piece of equipment you would like to explore please bring it with you and we will work with you to rig it.

week 1 (LIMITED PLACES AVAILABLE)
Lindsey Butcher & Kat Cooley
Lindsey Butcher & Kate Lawrence
Come with an idea, or a music track that inspires you to move, or an image or emotion that you want to explore, together with a willingness to investigate a proposition on single or side pick up harness on the wall or floor.
Expect to be gently encouraged to be braver and dig deeper to challenge and surprise yourself.
This is your opportunity to learn more about your creative process.
For this class you can choose to work either with Kat in wk one or Kate in wk 2 or with Lindsey across the two weeks. We will ask you to state your preference and try to accommodate this.
Should you wish to work towards performing your piece there will be an opportunity to do so on the evening of Sat 17th. You can however just come to the class to experience the process – performing is optional.
NB This is ideally a 2-week class.
If you have a particular simple rigging proposition you would like to explore (within reason) we will endeavour to work with you to rig it. If it requires special equipment then please discuss it with Lindsey in advance firstname.lastname@example.org.
