FREE Contemporary Dance Two Day Intensive and Performance with National Dance Company Wales

Deda and Derby Theatre in partnership with National Dance Company Wales are offering dancers and performers aged between 14-18yrs a unique and exciting opportunity this Easter. Participants will work with NDCWales Dance Ambassadors Kerryn Wise and Jo Petch for a 2 day intensive, to create an exciting performance which will be shown as a curtain raiser to be performed before NDCWales present their triple bill KIn at Derby Theatre on Tuesday 5 May 2020.

Dancers will take part in creative workshops in contemporary dance and physical theatre to explore the themes and processes of NDCWales work. This intensive will explore creative tasks used by

Choreographer/ Artistic Director Fearghus O Conchuir to devlop the choreographic material for Rygbi: Yam/Here or creative tasks used by Choreographer Nigel Charnock to develop material from Lunatic. Participants will learn small sections of repertoire and then be encouraged to develop these using tasks and choreographic devices, building material to create a final 10mins group performance piece.
