Looking for dancers/ physical performers for workshop/R&D day

Cost: Free

Organiser: Fen

**If you applied before 21:00 on Monday 28th January, please re-send your application as the wrong email was posted**

Fen in collaboration with artists Joseff Harris and James Kent are developing a new project titled ‘Grief and High Delight’, which started development last year with the Tobacco Factory residency programme . 

We are looking for dancers or performers who are confident with movement to take part in a workshop / research & development day on the 4th Feb from 10–5pm.

‘Grief and High Delight’ will be part installation, part film and will work to investigate perceptions of relationships and connections between people. 

The day will be informal, fun and will be organised and run like a workshop. We will go through some devising movement exercises for dancers and non-dancers, explore different routes into devising movement and generate some short pieces together. 

We’re interested in exploring our initial ideas with performers at different levels of experience.

The workshop will be small with limited spaces, so to apply please send a short email with relevant experience, a CV and, if you have it on hand, a showreel.

Please apply by 5pm on Thursday 31st January 

The workshop will be lead by Maisie Newman who is Co-director of Fen. We will also be working alongside composers Rowan Evans and Joseff Harris. 

Maisie is a workshop practitioner for The Bristol Od Vic Theatre,  She also specialises in developing choreography for non-dancers and creates movement work which is disruptive and body and community oriented. She was recently the Bristol Old Vic associate artist for Gecko Theatre’s ‘The Wedding’.
