Alex AllanRope Workshops
Alex AllanRope Workshops
Fri, Apr 20th, 2018
3 days of Rope Workshops with Alex Allan.
Intermediate/Advanced.
2-5pm each day.
£135
To book email madammango@hotmail.co.uk

Level: Intermediate/Advanced – Participants should feel confident with a range of beats, flares and release manoeuvres.

This master class series has been designed to give participants a new perspective on the creation of contemporary rope work. Students will not only learn a new vocabulary of momentum-based skills but will learn them as part of larger phrases of choreography. In these workshops, skills will be explored as transitions and technique will be implemented to create a quality of movement that is fluid, seamless and powerful. C-shape pathways will also be used in these transit...ions and as a means moving efficiently up and down the rope in rotational movements.

In these workshops we will also focus on connecting to the floor. Students will learn original floor choreography and different ways of engaging with the rope on the ground created by Alex. Participants will also be given a variety of transitions onto and off of the rope resulting in a new insight into creating work that is not restricted to the air but can move organically between both the floor and the air.

Egg by Sarah Bebe Holmes
Egg by Sarah Bebe Holmes
Sat, Apr 14th, 2018

Aerial Theatre Performance

The production brings carefully crafted aerial acrobatics across an entire PVC plastic set with visual projections to envelop the internal workings of a woman during this period of time. From the physical distortion created from hormones and the emotional displacement egg donation entails, Egg delves into the complexities of both the legal and ethical implications of surrendering the rights to your genetically linked child.

The whole story is set to a live music soundscape with double bass, electric bass and assortment of experimental instruments such as plastic and balloon to supplement the ever-present synthetic nature of the story and set.

Sugarman- Jair Ramirez
Sugarman- Jair Ramirez
Sun, Oct 22nd, 2017

Sugarman explores the reality of being tied into the routine of urban life in a Colombian metropolis, and how to rise above the daily grind. While there are aspects that relate to Bogota specifically I believe the underlying theme of claustrophobia and the how to breaking free is universal.
Sugarman combines imaginative use of aerial equipment with clowning, charecter and narrative in a hugely enjoyable solo performance.

There will be some loaal circus performances prior to the main show, TBC.
Bar and a warm, welcoming atmosphere!
