Forsythe - Based Technologies and Performance Technique
Come join International dancer/choreographer Francesca Harper, the Artistic Director of Francesca Harper Project.
Francesca was a Principal Dancer with the Frankfurt Ballet under the direction of William Forsythe for almost a decade and was one of the original cast members of Forsythe's "Self Meant to Govern," which incorporated all of Forsythe's Improvisation technologies. She has set Forsythe's work and her Company has had the honour of performing Forsythe's work as well.
Francesca found Forsythe technologies opened her mind incredibly as an artist and ultimately changed the trajectory of her artistic experience.
Francesca has conducted Forsythe -based workshops around the world. This particular workshop will start with a ballet barre, will introduce Forsythe technologies, and then lead into a daily structured improvisation. After the improvisation the students will learn Forsythe repertoire from Francesca and receive feedback on performance details.
This workshop will leave the student with a sense of ownership of their artistry, and a deeper understanding of their own personal expression as not only a performer but as a human being.
Please bring pointe shoes.
Pointe shoes are not required but encouraged.
