KAASH / iTMOi Repertory
This workshop will be offering participants a fascinating insight into the Akram Khan Company’s practice and choreography. The workshop will start with an intense physical improvisation rooted in the works of choreographers such as Akram Khan, Emio Greco and Gregory Maqoma, it aims to deepen the awareness of body/mind through the exploration of time/speed, space, rhythms and repetition. The dancers will learn sections from the pieces iTMOIi (2013) and KAASH (created in 2002 and re-staged in 2014) and explore their own creativity through the manipulation of the material learned.
The teacher, Nicola Monaco, has worked with Akram for a number of years and will lead repertory sessions that draw upon materials from the company’s pieces. The aim of the workshop is to deepen the awareness of the body through elements like inner/outer space, speed and repetition. More detailed information about which repertory pieces will be worked on will follow soon.
