Far From Home – Community Cast Workshop
Call for participating in Far From Home by Alleyne Dance

© Camilla Greenwell

Alleyne Dance invites you to join us for physical and expressive workshops based on the repertoire of the company’s most recent production, Far From Home, and join us for five performances across the 2023 ImPulsTanz festival. Through this production, we are investigating the emotions and stresses on migrant families, as well as the impact on local communities in which migrants ‘settle’, as we unpick the meaning of tolerance and practice of integration.   
Please sign up at:
Deadline for signing up is Sunday 23 July, 21:00.

In the workshop, Alleyne Dance will share their signature style of lyrical movement, exploring rhythm, musicality, stamina and intention. Participants will be able to draw on their own stories to reflect on the themes of the production. Sessions will be reflective, immersive, fun and energetic, and will be tailored to your own level and ability.  This opportunity is open for anyone over the age of 8 years old who wants to move, have fun and is interested in performing, regardless of your ability! (Under 8s can be discussed with the Company.)  

Please note, participation in the performances is compulsory in attending the workshop. You will need to commit yourself to the rehearsal schedule with the end goal of performing with Alleyne Dance in Far From Home.
