Lloyd Newson & Hannes Langolf
Verbatim Dance Theatre
The material for this Field Project is based on the company's latest production "John". During an intensive research and development period in 2013, Artistic Director Lloyd Newson interviewed over 50 men asking them frank questions about their lives. Their stories about love, sex and personal struggles converge in an unexpected way, providing an insight into a world unknown by most.
These recorded interviews, which formed the basis of the work, will be used in the creative sessions. Participants will learn to develop ways of interweaving this text with movement. Besides learning some of the company's repertoire, participants will also have a chance to create their own material employing some of the tasks used in DV8's devising process. There will be rigorous feedback. Please be aware that this workshop is not for the faint hearted. The sessions will deal with themes concerning male sexuality.
Lloyd Newson (DV8 Artistic Director) and Hannes Langolf (DV8 Creative Associate), supported by Ian Garside and Andi Xhuma (DV8 performers), will conduct this Field Project with pre-selected male participants.
