Metamorphosis Method Workshop

Metamorphosis Method Workshop

Van Huynh Company invites Iratxe Ansa and Igor Bacovich to deliver a week long Dance Intensive at Centre 151.

Iratxe and Igor bring their internationally renown Metamorphosis Method, a physical and dynamically challenging movement exploration practice.

Metamorphosis is a process of transformation and growth. It is a process of maturing, whereby dancers become artists. This method leads dancers on a path that calls for disciplined, focused and intelligent hard work. It encourages creativity through guided exploration – a nurtured and trusted environment where artistic knowledge is transferred and explored.

Iratxe Ansa is a former dancer with Nederlands Dans Theater, Compañia Nacional de Danza, Lyon Opera Ballet, Ballet Basel, Ballet Gulbenkian.

Igor Bacovich is a former dancer with Bruno Listopad, Krisztina de Chatel, Nanine Linning.

Industrialising Intimacy on tour

Industrialising Intimacy on tour

Industrialising Intimacy is the brainchild of respected vocal artist Elaine Mitchener in collaboration with Dam Van Huynh, pioneer of computer music - composer George Lewis and renowned sound artist, writer and musician David Toop.

Industrialising Intimacy is the fruit of this unique collaboration, combining vocal improvisation, movement and sound to create an original work of contemporary music theatre. Wavering between observer and partaker, the audience is invited to share Mitchener's exploration of the many facets of intimacy. The performer investigates the loss of privacy in our society versus the strength of true intimacy in the search for one's centeredness.

Supported by Sound and Music and using public funding by Arts Council England
With further support from OCM and Centre 151
