Ultima Vez: Movement for Theatre Workshops

Ultima Vez: FREE Movement for Theatre Workshops – Led by Wayne Sables (Ages 14-24)

 

Open to all, no prior dance experience necessary. Please wear loose fitting clothes that are comfortable and you can move in.

 

This is your chance to work with award winning choreographer and film maker Wayne Sables through a series of free dance sessions held at Cast, Doncaster.

 

Over the course of three sessions you will explore the themes of the show and create your own unique movement, theatre and film in response to show. 

 

We will be holding two introductory sessions on:

 

Saturday 21st February, 11am – 1pm & 2pm – 4pm 

 

(you need only attend one of these), and two further sessions after this: 

 

28th February, 11am – 1pm 

7th March, 11am-1pm

 

These sessions will coincide with the UK leg of Ultima Vez’s  world tour revival of their acclaimed debut show ‘What The Body Does Not Rememeber’. All participants will receive a free ticket for the show when it plays at Cast on Monday 10 March.

 

If you would like to book a place please email Lauren Townsend at ltownsend@thepoint.org.uk

 

About Ultima Vez:

Ultima Vez was founded in 1986 as the company and organisation of choreographer, director and filmmaker Wim Vandekeybus. Since its foundation, Ultima Vez has intensively developed its activities as an international contemporary dance company with a strong base in Brussels and Flanders.

 

‘What the Body Does Not Remember’ was the debut work from Wim Vandekeybus and Ultima Vez in 1987 and stunned the world of dance at the time. What the Body Does Not Remember won the Bessie Award in New York for this ‘brutal confrontation of dance and music: the dangerous, combative landscape of What the Body Does Not Remember.’ Twenty-eight years later and with a new cast, the show still stands as one of the most exciting pieces of dance ever made and is once again on an unmissable world tour.

About Wayne Sables:

Graduating from Bretton Hall with a BA (Hons) in Contemporary Dance in 2001 he began a career in dance teaching, performance and choreography. Over the next 10 years Wayne had a varied career both in the USA: where, in 2003, he became artist in residence at the Vermont Arts Exchange; and in the UK where he performed and choreographed for several companies before going on to form WSP (Wayne Sables Project).

Wayne has worked with numerous community groups to devise and create small to large-scale performances, exhibitions, films and more recently mobile applications. Working within the community is at the heart of Wayne’s ethos and it underpins the entire companies foundations.
