This work is being devised specially for Oxford Dance Forum so will be a unique opportunity to explore contact work from improvisation into choreography.
Retina is known for its partner and group contact work, which ranges from quirky to visceral to emotive. Retina dancers will share contact movement vocabulary and techniques for lifting and moving together as well as allowing time to explore your own contact moments.
Working from both Belgium and the UK, Retina's Artistic Director Filip Van Huffel has established a particular working methodology that emphasises his investigation of pure movement that affects the viewer theatrically through a physically vibrant movement quality.
The workshop is suitable for professional dancers, graduates and advanced students of dance and physical theatre. It is open to artists from anywhere, you don't have to be based in Oxford.
To book a place please email Kyla Booth-Lucking, Programme Manager for Oxford Dance Forum or call her on 07958 002207.
