Absorbed In Action | Masterclass with Theo Clinkard
Saturday 30th & Sunday 31st January 2016
Each day will start with a generous two-hour class that is both challenging and playful, followed by a focused session where participants can delve into some of the ideas he is currently concerned with before developing material through exploratory and creative tasks and dancing together as a group.
Born in Cornwall and based in Brighton, choreographer, performer, teacher and designer, Theo Clinkard has been creating his own work for three years, following twenty years performing internationally in work by many of the UK’s most celebrated choreographers (Siobhan Davies, Wayne McGregor, Matthew Bourne, Bgroup, Rafael Bonachela, New Art Club and The Featherstonehaughs).
Theo has recently premiered a new work for Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch. Future commissions include a creation for Danza Contemporanea de Cuba and a new middle scale work with Dance4 where he is an Associate Artist.
