W-11 / The Moving Voice (Waiting List)
In the frame of Winter Tanz 2016/17
Drawing on various experiences from the worlds of theatre and dance, and particularly DV8’s verbatim dance theatre, this workshop will explore the moving voice in the context of dance and performance. There will be many playful group exercises along with explorations on a smaller scale, investing in both the personal and the ensemble experience. From physiological sound production within the body; to articulation, diction and projection from an actors perspective; to ensemble sound-scapes and rhythm work; to interpreting sensation and external impetus. Weaving through this multitude of approaches we are always dealing with the question of how our movements and our voices are connected - anatomically, physically and from the point of creative emotive potential.
Ian Garside (UK/Spain) discovered contemporary dance through theatre and classical acting - he completed a BA (Hons) at Laban, London, before studying at P.A.R.T.S. Brussels. Since 2010 he has worked as a performer for various companies and independent choreographers across Europe, including Punchdrunk (Shanghai), Liquid Loft/ Chris Haring (Vienna) and the seminal DV8 Physical Theatre (London). Alongside performance, Ian has taught in a multitude of contexts to all manner of students, from amateurs to professionals, children to over 70’s. Most notably he has delivered master classes, workshops and auditions for DV8 in such places as ImPulsTanz (Vienna), Institut del Teatre (Barcelona), the Onassis Cultural Centre (Athens), and Dancemakers (Toronto).
