We have a residency at Citymoves in Aberdeen next week! I am very excited, and very honoured to have been selected to be part of their residency programme.
I wouldn’t normally do a post beforehand, however I am incredibly excited and there are a few events I would like to invite you to.
We’re there from 19th – 23rd June
@ The Anatomy Rooms, Shoe Lane, Aberdeen, AB10 1AN
There will be a chance to meet the Artist for Artist Networking Tuesday 1-2pm, so bring your lunch and come along and chat. If you know me, you know I love to chat, so please do come along! I’d love to meet all the dancers up there!
There will be an open workshop on Thursday 10-11:30am, where we will explore the theme, what it means to you, improvise and I shall teach some rep from the piece.
There will also be a sharing of work and discussion Friday 5pm.
‘Kathryn Spence and dancers (Gordon Raeburn, Katie Armstrong, Julia McGhee) wish to explore boundaries and borders, and the effects they have on us, both positive and negative. Looking at boundaries in the space, both physical and mental, we aim to explore when we excel with restriction and when that restriction becomes frustration, and how this may impose upon one another. We have so far explored land and water boundaries, using ordnance survey maps as a score for movement. Development time in Aberdeen is incredibly apt as we are performing the final piece in Shetland. We aim to share our personal boundaries with the audience, breaking down barriers.’
I am excited, albeit nervous to adapt the piece to the original idea of it being with 4 dancers. It’s going to be challenging, but fun, and I am sure that it will all be worthwhile. I always wanted the piece to be with four, however for the last residency Julia was injured. I am looking forward to welcoming her back to the studio.
