Jack Gray

The Lab

With Jack Gray.


Description

The Lab is a 4-day unique creative workshop with the acclaimed Jack Gray, Artistic Director of Atamira Dance Company. Designed for interdisciplinary practitioners, the wānanga intensive focuses on activations through daily movement, discourse and making, with participants in for a physically and emotionally charged experience. The approach is varied, looking at physicality and activating the body using easy to follow patterns and joyful interaction between music, the participants and the space. Through a range of techniques including improvisation, structured choreographic methods, self-directed writing tasks, image-making, explorations, kōrero, and self-directed lab time, participants will be given the tools to deeper manifest these experiences in their bodies. 

Includes a special masterclass session with Jack sharing his global inspirations as a maker with practices steeped in Mātauranga Māori.
