You and Me, Both: Choreography and Sound Design Collaborative Workshops
STRUT, in partnership with Tura New Music, State Theatre Centre WA and the Perth Theatre Trust, will present their next two 2-week workshop in the You and Me, Both series, with local artist Rachel Arianne Ogle and sound designer and composer Luke Smiles (VIC/SA) set to inspire, plus TURA New Music offering full scholarships for select composers to participate*
In principle, these workshops are for both choreographers and music composers who are interested to develop their collaborative skills across disciplines. Under the guidance of industry masters, a cohort of choreographers and composers will be devising principles and methodologies for working together and applying the results onto a pool of dancers for immediate analysis and feedback.
More often than not, resources do not allow for collaboration across art forms at an early developmental level. Because of this, STRUT has devised dynamic and responsive programs for choreographers that build skills in collaborative processes. STRUT will be providing pathways to encourage future collaboration across all stage art forms. These conversations should commence at ground zero and be continual. The aim is to provide all parties with the necessary vernacular and skills to develop performance works of greater resonance and depth and deliver these to the public. The focus in 2015 is music composition and sound design.
Rachel Arianne Ogle is a pillar of the WA dance sector and already has a fruitful collaborative relationship with Luke Smiles culminating in precipice in 2014. Here is a team that can provide a very refined skill set towards working collectively for the stage. This second workshop You and Me, Both will be a slower reflective approach that enables the choreographers to develop an evolving sound-scape for their own work. This will culminate in a public performance outcome hosted by the State Theatre Centre WA.
