Last week at Circomedia was Integration Week - and it was AMAZING! We had workshops which gave us tools with which to create our own choreographies, working from the pedestrian to abstract, workshops in musicality of movement with the lovely Anna Helena McLean, we learnt from Bim about how to discover the theatre-ness of circus, and learnt how to generate text with Adam Peck. I loved every second, but interestingly it really showed the differences between the students who are at Circomedia to explore creativity, and those who are here to train in the technical and skill elements of circus. I wonder why we define ourselves as one or the other, and where the true meeting point is?
And on a different note, here's the link to the video of my Spring Project. Obviously, as videos of live performances often can, it really lacks the atmosphere that was present on the night, but I think it's interesting as a work in progress. I'd like to take the idea further, but know that the finished product will look very different to what it is right now. As they say in the musical theatre world, I'm prepared to kill some babies to get there. Lovely analogy, eh?http://youtu.be/FOnITdfnWkA
