Rock Bottom is an aerial dance theatre duet which is presently in research and development phase, led by Stuart Waters, working with Wendy Hesketh-Ogilvie. Awarded funding from Arts Council England, it draws on experiences of mental health issues and moments when we hit our own 'rock bottom'.
This two-day intensive is an extension of the research period for Rock Bottom, within which emotions associated with the theme will be explored, finding ways to physically express personal narratives. Stuart and Wendy are looking for mid-career artists (actors who move as well as dance artists), who perform but are also interested in making work. If you are looking for an opportunity to move, investigate, talk, laugh, ask questions and evolve, this is for you! Participants will likely explore the use of voice, and will need to be comfortable with exploring ideas around vulnerability.
To take part, simply send an email with the subject 'Research Intensive' to [email protected], with a statement on why you wish to take part (max. 100 words), plus a summary of your training and performance history (max. 100 words). The deadline for expressions of interest is Tue 21 February, 5pm.
This Research Intensive forms part of Wired's professional development and workshops programme for LEAP Dance Festival - full details are on our Workshops page.
