Johanna Chemnitz and Dolores Hulan from 7 Pleasures will present a masterclass for professional dancers.
From Johanna and Dolores:
The masterclass will begin with bodywork that leads towards working and experimenting with some of the material of Mette Ingvartsen's piece 7 Pleasures, which Dolores and Johanna took part in the creation of, and are performing in during Melbourne Festival. There will be time to practice notions such as 'viscosity', 'shaking' and possibly some voice work—followed by a discussion.
Friday 20 October
Chunky Move, Studio 1
111 Sturt Street, Southbank
Cost $40 per participant. Two positions will be funded by Melbourne Festival—check the box when you apply to be considered.
