Workshop Participant

Playful and explorative. Suitable for school groups, youth groups, undergraduate students and recent graduates, this workshop allows participants to explore the choreographic approaches used by the Karla Shacklock Company.

The workshop will comprise a structured warm up, improvisation, exploration of a range of choreographic tasks and, dependent on the length of the workshop, the opportunity to make and perform a short work.

Fast, fun and highly physical. Suitable for dance groups, undergraduate/post-graduate students and professionals, this workshop is an opportunity for participants to learn some of the repertoire from the current touring work.

The workshop will comprise company class and stretch, the deconstruction and learning of between one and four phrases (dependent on length of workshop) and the opportunity to re-construct and perform the material.

Company Masterclass: Interrogative, highly physical and packed full of discoveries. Suitable for artists from all disciplines, this masterclass offers a unique opportunity to go beyond what participants think is physically, vocally and emotionally possible. The masterclass will explore Karla's highly innovative approach to accessing the performance consciousness in order to reveal the true self.

The masterclass will comprise company class, repertoire, improvisation, choreographic tasks and, time dependent, the opportunity to make and perform a work.
