UPCOMING RESIDENCY: 11th – 12th of March 2017 with Sam Gilroy




Sam Gilroy will be researching a work in the making, ‘If Wishes Were Horses,

Beggars Would Ride’. Exploring episodic memories and how to perform them,
the workshop will focus on the dancers creating the imagery from the episodic
memories using a polythene sheet as a central prop; creating a tent; cradling a
baby; wearing a veil. This workshop seeks to explore how a company of dancers
can use contact work and contemporary techniques to bring personal
narratives to life and transition seamlessly from one episode to the next.
Both days will begin with a 1 hour contemporary class to warm-up and learn
repertoire movement, followed by choreographic tasks and explorations. This
workshop is open to trained dancers and undergraduates in their final year of
training.

FREE: this residency is a part of trip’s choreographic exchange, supporting
choreographers and professional dancers to develop work together.

The residency will be held at Middlesex University, Hendon in the Ritterman Dance
Studio. 10am-4pm.
