Professional Class with Joss Carter

13-17 February

All professional classes at The Place are intended for high-level dancers only. These classes offer professional dancers an opportunity to maintain their skills and abilities, network with other professionals and even maybe find new projects to work on.

If you are an amateur dancer, there are lots of other opportunities for you to engage with. Browse our adult classes programme for more information.

These classes require professional standards from participants and early arrival is required for warm up.

About this class

Joss’ classes focus exhausting the body through variations of self disciplined actions, and expanding and shrinking the kinesphere using vibrations of the body in a stimulating and radical movement technique that is energised by a forced breath to find the extremes of power and tension to further the discovery of softness and relaxation. The aim is to strip the ego and obtain states of liberation in body and soul through mindfulness and grotesqueness. 

About Joss Carter

Joss graduated from the Northern School of Contemporary Dance in 2010 where he went on to work with the likes of the BalletBoyz & Russel Maliphant, T.R.A.S.H, Tilted Productions, Hofesh Sheather x Anthony Gormley and Frauke Requardt. He is currently touring COAL with Gary Clarke Company.

Carter's work is a provoking and controversial surreal hyper-realism that challenges the histories, beliefs, cultures and fantasies of humanity. Through the disruption of physical and mental states of the performer his audience’s are transcended through a cathartic journey of visceral concepts and an awakening of the senses allowing the questioning and consideration of ones own existence.
