SUITABLE FOR YEARS 9 – 12
Dance Bites is FORM Dance Projects’ curated signature program of dance works produced by some of Australia’s most innovative and exciting independent choreographers and companies. Dance Bites celebrates the diversity of contemporary dance making. Learn the Repertoire, See the Show offers dance students an opportunity to learn from each of the Dance Bites performances in a workshop led by the presenting artist(s). Alongside the workshop, students experience a matinee performance and post-show Q&A with the artistic team.
DOUBLE BEAT comes with a tailor-made education package including workshop, education resource pack and performance offered either online or in the theatre.
With an exceptional all female Australian cast and creative team directed by Helpmann Award winner Sara Black, Double Beat explores the aural and physical responses the heart and pulse present in differing emotional and physical states. Three weeks after conception we have a beat, our bodies are far from fully formed, yet a beat has begun. We can often be disconnected to this life force and sensation that we carry within us. Here we find space to connect to those rhythms and observe the wonder of the human body.
Sara Black and her team will introduce students to the process of making Double Beat, an exploration of our constant heartbeat and pulse in a close partnership of sound and movement. The workshop will begin with a high energy contemporary warm up. Students will then have the opportunity to engage in an introduction to Heart Rhythm Meditation practice. This experience will be used to guide an open exploration into improvisation tasks operating from internal and external connections to the rhythm of the pulse and heart.
