The weekly sessions are a chance to work with different leading local and visiting dance artists in a creative, workshop-style format. Each session includes a form of warm-up before moving into the improvisation and/or choreographic processes of the facilitator. The sessions are facilitated by established local dance artists and visiting national and international guest artists. Shared practice is open to anyone who is interested in engaging in dance and choreography based practices.
Please get in touch if you would like more information about the sessions or are interested in leading a Shared Practice session:

Thomas is based in Brussels (BE), and works for Emanuel Gat Dance (FR) as dancer, costume designer and pedagogue. He previously danced with Sydney Dance Company and Australian Dance Theatre. His practice is largely influenced by Japanese Butoh, which lead to the creation of his solo exposition yvonne and the duo performance work clay with his Japanese collaborator, Dai Matsuoka.
SHARED PRACTICE: Thomas’s session ‘entry//exit play’ will include appropriated elements of Ankoku Butoh practice, using the body as a meeting point for imaginative internal and external forces. Latterly, a shared practice of Improvised Choreography will generate a group dynamic of choreographic play, starting from improvisation on clarity, no less. Bring something you would wear to a social dance.
