Tracks Dance Company is seeking expressions of interest for its 2014 Choreographic Program
Led by choreographer and dancer Jess Devereux, the program is open to anyone with a desire to develop their understanding and practice of choreography, in a supportive and professional environment. It’s an opportunity to meet dancers, make new friends and explore a variety of processes, working in the beautiful Tracks Dance Studio at Frog’s Hollow Centre for the Arts. It aims to assist participants in uncovering their personal dance style and uniqueness, and to build the culture of dance making and appreciation in Darwin!
Jess is interested in diverse dance practices and making multi art-form projects, solo and collaborative and is particularly interested in dance film, contemporary music, costume, dance theatre and visual art. Jess facilitates workshops that explore all of these things plus improvisation, task orientated movement and writing. The program is all about developing your ideas and finding new moves and new ways! Most importantly, it’s about challenging yourself to find a deeper understanding of process and what goes into making strong dance work.
The fourteen-week program will run February 3 - April 11 then May 5 - June 1 (taking a 3 week break over Easter and school holidays). Two workshops will be run per week, ending in a public showing May 31 – June 1. The Tracks Choreographic Program is free.
