For this EXIT ABOVE – After the tempest workshop, we will focus on some of the dance material in the piece that was inspired by various characters from Shakespeare’s The Tempest. During the creation, we used various works of art depicting each of the characters. These paintings formed a series of poses that each dancer used to create their phrase material. During the workshop, we will work in a similar way, creating our own character phrases. We will then explore the possibilities of constructing with these phrases, creating complex counterpoints.
