FORM Dance Projects and Sydney Dance Company present
FORM Dance Projects welcomes the return of its annual Choreographic Workshop in 2021 in partnership with Sydney Dance Company.
This popular program provides HSC Dance students with the unique opportunity to develop their choreographic skills under the guidance of industry professionals.
Mentored by Sydney Dance Company teaching artists, the practical workshop shares choreographic tools and techniques used by the company during the creation of Rafael Bonachela’s Impermanence with Bryce Dessner of iconic American rock band The National.
In this immersive one-day workshop, students will be challenged to think innovatively, disrupt familiar patterns of moving, generate interesting material and develop their confidence and creativity in composition. The workshop program will also offer insights into Rafael Bonachela’s creative process through viewing and discussing excerpts of Sydney Dance Company work with the artists.
The Choreographic Workshop is particularly valuable for HSC dance students and students who would like to participate in Sharp Short Dance later in the year.
“Students were engaged in tasks and able to see how dance works are created.” – Ebony Ulbrand, Bossley Park High School Dance Teacher
