Antonia Grove, Artistic Director of Probe, will lead a playful and energetic dance theatre workshop using themes from her upcoming performance, Now You See It, to build confidence in using improvisation in dancing. Using guided improvisation tasks, gameplay and learnt phrases you will identity the movement qualities, materials and rules to use in group improvisations later in the session.
You are invited to bring to the workshop an item of clothing/hat/mask/wig/cape(!) etc. that makes you feel more or less visible when you wear it.
Open Level is suitable for anyone who has had over a years’ experience in either contemporary dance or ballet. Championing personal development, the focus in this class is less on technique and more on the individual's quality and style of movement.
Antonia trained at the Rambert School and then joined Rambert Dance Company 1998-2003. Since then she has danced with companies such as Random Dance, Fabulous Beast, New Art Club, Clod Ensemble and Vincent Dance Theatre to name a few, and with choreographers like Christopher Bruce, Mats Ek, Richard Alston, Lea Anderson and Wendy Houston. Antonia founded the dance theatre company Probe in 2004 and has produced and performed 6 touring productions to date. She is presently touring her most recent solo work 'Now You See It'.
