Presented by Ella Mesma Company
IGNiTE artist Ella Mesma returns to Trinity Centre following her performance of Ladylike to present two dance workshops from her HOME series. Saturday, 12 January 2019 from 10:00-14:00
Created using movement and meditation, these workshops are designed to heal, open and empower. There are 7 in the series each inspired by a specific chakra. The sessions at trinity will focus on the themes of Home & Heart.
Ticket price includes entry to both sessions, but attending both is not a requirement.
10am – 11:30 am HOME
HOME uses different improvisation techniques and work with the bandhas and the ‘Pole of the Body’ as described by Katherine Dunham to discover and unlock the unique movement language within all of us. Danced to Latin and Afro house, (and other awesome tracks) HOME includes body isolations, contract/release work, floorwork and the imagination.
12:30pm – 2:00pm HEART
HEART uses different techniques from contemporary and partner dances to get back in touch with ourselves and to remember how to communicate without words. Danced to Latin, Electronic, and other awesome tracks HEART includes lifting, one to one and group partner combinations as well as meditations to connect to the heart.
