W-06A / Dynamic, Rhythm & Texture
In the frame of Winter Tanz 2019/20
Dynamics, Rhythm & Texture is a physical Contemporary workshop, which will involve strong, complex and technical sequences in and out of the floor, focusing on quality, initiation, performance and stamina. Throughout the sessions, improvisation will also be explored as part of self development, stemming from a physical intention. The significant factors for the workshop are to develop the dancers' physicality, flexibility, technique, build awareness for textures in movement, stimulate the creative mind, driving from passion, musicality and honesty. Alleyne Dance has a slogan – Passion and Sweat; passion will lead you into a sweaty situation. In their practise they study how physicality can create an emotion or character.
Alleyne Dance was founded in 2014 by sisters Kristina and Sadé Alleyne. Their aesthetic reflects their diverse background of athleticism and dance training. AD blends Afro- Caribbean, Hip Hop, Kathak, Latin and Circus Skills within a contemporary dance context. Their movement is fast paced and dynamic with infusions of lyrical and fluid motion, with a focus on rhythms and textures. Over the past five years they have built and developed the company, striving for high quality and excellence as they deliver their two main objectives, performance and education work. Alleyne Dance has received over 10 choreographic commissions including The Bench, creating an outdoor work on 2faced Dance Company, which is due to be toured from 2020. The education work has been delivered in a range of settings around the world and is designed to support the individual creative mind, passion, deter- mination, strength and most importantly, their intention and belief in themselves.
