A Day with Jasmin Vardimon Company, led by dancer Joshua Smith
Wednesday 03 April
Morning Professional Class: 10:30-12:00 (£5.50)
Afternoon Workshop: 13:00-15:30 (£20)
The day will consist of professional class and an afternoon workshop based on Jasmin Vardimon Company’s latest work Medusa. Premiered in 2018 Medusa provides reflection on the powerful feminine symbol of Medusa, the myth and its various connotations in our contemporary life. Both sessions will be delivered by professional company member Joshua Smith and give participants a taste of Jasmin Vardimon’s unique choreographic voice, distinguished by her beautifully detailed movement and powerful physicality.
The afternoon workshop will give participants the opportunity to learn repertory from Medusa and explore creative work that reflects the creative methodology used by Jasmin Vardimon. Participants will gain an insight into Jasmin Vardimon’s uniquely theatrical choreographic and directorial style combining physical theatre, quirky characterisation, innovative technologies, text and dance, accentuated with an acute observation of human behaviour.
Book one or join us for both!
Suitable for advanced degree students, recent graduates and professionals
