After continued success and sold out intensives in Europe The Banff Centre is delighted to invite Hofesh Shechter Company to host a 5 day intensive that will offer professional dancers an in depth exploration into the principles that underpin Hofesh’s movement style and quality.
What does it offer?
Led by Hofesh Shechter Company dancers, the day will include a warm-up class introducing key elements to understanding and experiencing the movement language and qualities of the work. Following the warm-up class a theme-led workshop session will be facilitated using sequences and movement material from the company’s repertoire including the newest work, barbarians, as well as creative tasks. The residency will culminate with a sharing of all the repertoire learnt.
Please note the Day 5 sharing is not open to the public and is purely for the participants involved.
Who should apply?
Open to professional dancers and students aged 18+ in full time professional dance training programs who are looking to enrich their practice and who have an interest in innovative approaches to movement and choreographic process.
