connectingvibes* generally devises it’s Education Work around it current touring productions which for 2015/16 is “Without Borders”.  In this way students can not only see a performance but also have the opportunity to learn and perform some of the choreography.  This gives them a unique perspective of the performances.

Without Borders

Created in 2014 as a short company piece, ‘Without Borders’ has now been developed into a full-length piece in response to the recent crises in migration as millions of people attempt to cross borders and make a new life for themselves.

Stories abound as travellers cross borders for many reasons, while some flee war-torn situations and persecution, others up root to engage with a different life, to study or pursue multiple dreams. Many hope to return to their countries, while others wish to build a new life with no thought of return. Leaving behind all that is familiar they must carry with them their sense of ‘home’.

Education Workshop and Performance

We also offer a combined workshop and performance package. The performance lasts approximately 50 minutes without an interval. However, this can be adjusted to meet individual requirements. The basic structure/format of a workshop is as follows:

  • Warm up
  • Participants to learn selected material from the piece
  • Sharing of work

Additional Information

Participants: Maximum of 30 participants per session. Please ensure all are suitably dressed.

Space: A clear, suitable space is required with a CD player, or MP3 connection. (Ideally NOT a classroom with carpeted or concrete flooring).

Length: Workshops last between 1.5-2.0 hours.

Important!

All performances and workshops can be adapted according to the needs of the individual.
