I am spending the spring in Devon while teaching at Plymouth University and working with the Devon Youth Dance Company.
Devon Youth Dance Company:
Rehearsals have kicked off with visting artist Raquel Meseguer of Lost Dog who is making a piece. The starting points behind this year’s work are to do with the idea of watching an being watched. What do we present to the world and what do we hide? This has thrown up some funny and intersting conversations about facebook and how people present their lives. Using walky talkies, binoculars, cup and string telephones, head phones, the face book live feed and a mic the dancers spy, imitate and razzle dazzle.
I am teaching technique as an Associate Lecturer for the Dance Theatre course. I am really pleased to have a regular teaching practice, and work with the talented and interesting folk who run the course.
