Captured Movement

Captured Movement

With Atamira Dance Company and Rachael Burke


Description

This unique life drawing workshop offers participants a rare opportunity to capture the essence of dance, by attending a rehearsal by Atamira Dance Company for one of their upcoming performances.

Observe, study and translate to paper the graceful shapes and physical expression of a professional dance corp as their various states of motion serve as inspiration for our artistic creations.

Guided by drawing tutor Rachael Burke, we'll explore the subtlety of stillness; the tranquillity of slow meditative movement; the dynamics of duets and relationships; and the energy of fast-paced phrases, providing participants a truly rich and inspiring drawing experience.

This collaborative workshop will provide both parties with an energetic exchange, creating community engagement with Atamira's creative process and a dynamic synergy between movement and art.

The two-hour drawing workshop will be followed by a chance to wind down together over shared kai after the dance rehearsal.

Your Teacher

Founded as a collective of dance artists in 2000, Atamira translates as ‘platform’ or ‘stage’. One of Aotearoa | New Zealand’s leading contemporary dance companies, Atamira occupies a unique space in the arts landscape, renowned for their deep and mesmerising work.

Their choreographers and dance artists draw from Mātauranga Māori (knowledge), inspired by historical events, personal whakapapa (genealogy) and the cultural and political landscape of Aotearoa | New Zealand to create works that uplift indigenous world views through dance.

It was a really well organised workshop. I loved the experimenting with the guidance of an excellent tutor and the opportunity to draw some of the Atamira dancers. Would definitely do it again!
