Julyen Hamilton has been creating dances, directing and teaching for the past 30 years. He was born in England, then lived in Amsterdam and now is based in Gerona, Spain. In 1984 he was awarded the 'Zilveren Dansprijs' by the VSCD in Holland.
Trained in a period of experimentation in London in the mid-70s, he has constantly made work from a radical point of view.
His work, both in company and solo, develops dance for the theatre where dancers and light designers are directed to compose pieces instantly, a process of practising improvisation in rehearsal and in the moment of performance. Hamilton creates his own personal language where movement and text constantly intertwine and are passed amongst the performers as a way of manifesting the sharing of the imagination. He is also invited to play with musicians, to choreograph for other dancers and to collaborate with other directors.
Since 1990 he has made more than 100 solos that have been seen all over the world. They are a highly original interplay between dance, live text and light. His latest solo Cell premiered in Barcelona in 2004.
His teaching work comes straight from the stage experience; it goes deeply into the compositional aspects of creativity through the areas of the physical body, space, time, dramaturgy and voice.
His label Blue Dog DVDs produces videos of his performances on DVD.

INFO WORKSHOP SPACE AND SILENCE
“MAKING THEM, USING THEM AND MAKING MORE"
« For a number of years SPACE has been of central interests to me, both as performer/dance-maker and as teacher.
Its nature, how we perceive it, its emotionality
and how it's inherent power in the theatrical setting
enables the performer and audience to share sensation and imagination.
And in the VOICE work which is a radical element of my performances deals with the action of 'making silence' and using it both acoustically and visually.
The work deals with the dual nature of 'silence'
in terms of acoustics and vision.
In this week's workshop we will work with both of these elements, how they coexist within the action of making dances spontaneously. »

Angela Praed graduated from Laban and afterwards she studied a PGCE in movement and special needs. She met Wayne McGregor and helped establish Random dance company.
In 1995 Angela had the opportunity to return to Cornwall. Material was devised out doors in direct relationship with the landscape and then transferred to the stage. For example “Boats worse than a bastard child for eating money” (1997).
Angela developed an interest in intergenerational performance. “Distance yourself” (2000) was her most direct expression to date and explored the intimate relationships between a young girl, of seven, a boy of sixteen and a mother.
Funding was awarded from ACESW for a tour of people’s bedrooms Easter 2005. Hosts replied to a newspaper advert for a duet in their bedroom. The Bedroom tour film was accepted for the IMZ dance reel and has toured internationally.
From the bedroom tour developed an all night live dance work called The Bed. The audience spends the whole night with the performance, which culminates in a communal breakfast.
This work gained a national touring grant from the Arts Council and has been shared at Laban, Dartington Colllege of Arts, the CCA Glasgow, the Tobacco factory Bristol and the Brewhouse.
The second avenue of work “The Body of Long Memory” explores dance in new contexts and the negotiation/ brokering of dance with the audience/participant. After the highly successful residency with sculptor John Trigg and dancers Jane Mason and River Camalt at Newlyn Art Gallery a major residency was offered at Plymouth City Art Gallery Spring 2005 and The Laban. The film investigations developed at Laban have been formed large scale installation for Trebah Gardens in Cornwall and Falmouth Art Gallery 2006.

INFO WORKSHOP THE SPACE IN BETWEEN
Exploring the transition from real to artifice, from conscious to subconscious. During the workshop you’ll learn fixed material and make it your own and create movement yourself starting from your own memories.
The work will be based on stories for children, fairytales, etc.
You’ll work with the space, walls and all spacial boundaries.
When you participate in the workshop, you will also be performing during the all-night dance marathon « The Bed ».
INFO PERFORMANCE THE BED
The bed is an all night dance event to which the audience bring sleeping bag and pillow and camp around the double bed in the space, which culminates in a communal breakfast.

INFO WORKSHOP CONTACT & IMPROVISATION : CLARITY, COMMUNICATION & COMPOSITION
« The aim of this course is that the participants:
1. develop a broader range of experience and skill with which to be more physically defined, present and creative in their partnering explorations;
2. experience the confidence to participate safely in contact jam situations and incorporate partnering work into their choreographic research; and
3. develop skills for integrating contact and partnering work in performance improvisations
We will focus on defining a system of movement research based upon the mechanical and communicative aspects of touch. Fundamental themes we will address are:
getting in and out of contact
being precise with different modes of weight sharing
discriminating ‘non-roled’ and ‘mover-partner’ dancing
experimenting with varying degrees of influence when partnering
balancing awareness between the one’s own dance and the communication with partner
and, balancing sensing and personal experience with compositional intentionality
These explorations will be combined with techniques for safety and self-responsibility. Our goal is to refine the language of observation and decision-making that we use as the basis for communication while improvising – and to experience a rich fulfillment in our dancing! Contact Improvisation without compromise. »

Les SlovaKs Collective
“In the lesson we will research the movement and its physicality. Our
focus will be working on developing technical skills through dancing.
We will improve stability, strength, flexibility and coordination,
building them up simultaneously and making them a basic body
equipement ready to be aplied in any kind of movement.
Our working tool will be open dancing used in the simply structured
group situation. We will use this method as a warm up, technical
exercise and full dance experience using the music as a strong
We would like to inspire the dancers in building up their own dance
techinque using their knowledge, observation and intuition.
The teaching is coming out of our own experience and joy to dance which we would like to pass on.
How to become better dancer? Just dance.”

INFO WORKSHOP MOVEMENT TRAINING & INSTANT COMPOSITION
« Diving into a deep physicality we can awaken the lighter body of intuition.
In the movement training we use experiential anatomy and partnering work to explore and experience technical principles and aspects of the body to attune the "instrument" and discipline the mind, engaging into a deep physicality. The work focuses on the development of a kinesthetic sense of the body, increasing awareness of the body in motion.
In instant composition we practice our capacity to make dances.
The issues of time and space are explored through simple exercises awakening the vibrant body, ready and alert, able to perceive and move as one organic action. As we play into group configurations we experience the power of a body-mind alignment and enjoy the harmonic synchronicity of one group as one body.
Emphasis is given upon dynamic dancing, to train and practice one's capacity to be immediate and to follow body’s intuition. »

BIOGRAPHY ANNE-MARIE BLINK
Anne-Marie Blink (1956) studeerde Zang en Schoolmuziek aan het Conservatorium te Groningen waarna ze opleidingen volgde als Lichaamswerk- therapeut en Stemtherapeut. Zoekend naar mogelijkheden van de menselijk stem, die, volgens haar, verder moesten reiken dan de gebruikelijke en bekende, kwam ze in contact met een aantal verschillende invloedsferen. Van de St. Rondom Stemwerk, waar ze de primitieve stem leerde kennen, tot aan Ida Kelarova’s Zigeunermuziek, Roy Hart’s vernieuwende stemtechnieken en het vele werk met kinderen dat ze, in elke leeftijdsgroep, gedaan heeft, bracht haar tot een meer fysieke benadering van de zangstem. Naast een actieve solocarrière verzorgt ze tegenwoordig workshops in binnen- en buitenland.

INFO WORKSHOP THE VOICE, OUR VOICE, MY VOICE
« In the workshop we work on the singing voice, resonating in the body and its influence on our song. The work is partly physical and partly based on repertoire, coming from the tradition of the World music. By working alone, in couples and with the whole group, we create a space where we can find our own unique sound and our own unique expression. »
