January: Carol Brown Choreographic Workshop
Canberra Dance Theatre is delighted to host a choreographic workshop to be taught by internationally recognised dance artist Carol Brown. Carol will be teaching one of her dances to members of GOLD. This is an opportunity for new people to join GOLD or for out-of-towners to work with the company and with Carol.
About the workshop
Carol will be restaging a dance based on the Dylan Thomas poem ‘The Force That Through The Green Fuse Drives The Flower’. The work is about our connection with all things in the universe through the force of energy that permeates everything. The workshop will conclude with an informal showing of the work. Other opportunities to perform the work will be available throughout the year. There is no expectation for interstate participants visiting Canberra for this workshop to be available for these performances, but of course you are always welcome.
About participating in the workshop
The workshop is designed for people aged 55+ who are able to move independently and without mobility aids. For this workshop, prior experience in dance is essential.
Prior experience in dance is not necessary to join regular GOLD classes. See canberradancetheatre.org
