In partnership with Cardif Dance Festival we have the following visiting artists leading class:-

TuesdayPreethi Athreya of Basement 21, India @ Rubicon
Hands and Feet – ‘Hands have always fascinated me as agents of transaction. The form of the hand, the complexity of movement possible with fingers and digits, as well as its capacity to signify has held my interest for long. So to with the idea of deciding to move and therefore the process of taking a step and holding time. Drawing from my knowledge of classical Indian dance as well as my need to question the bodily hierarchies, I wish to share my methods of investigating hand gestures and rhythm cycles as open-ended forms.’

WednesdayPadmini Chettur of Basement 21, India @ Rubicon
Narrating Time/Space‘For more than two decades now, I have been investigating ideas of time and space, viewing them mostly as strategies to connect dancers to each other within a group, as well as a concrete way to define the space around bodies. Embodied in this research has been very precise attention to small detail and an incredible arrival at freedom within bound parameters. This class will be an introduction to my ways of working.’
