ABOUT THE MASTERCLASS
Sound and music are an important aspect of performance and art. They can carry intention, mood, tell stories, and create ambience. Sound can strengthen the stories we are telling through our movement and reinforce the ideas we are communicating.
In this class we will explore how to better work with music in your movement practice; ways to break down songs and sound, and to design movement pieces around them, or to find and create music that better fits your movement. The class will explore using these techniques practically and apply music theory to open up your movement practice, and add to your devising toolkit.
Suitable for both experienced and emerging artists.
