2pm–5.30pm : March 1st 2019

We are living through a particularly rich period in expressive movement. Whether realised in genres with a long history, such as folk dance and ballet, or in free, as yet unclassified forms, there appears to be more activity than ever.

But what opportunities are there for practitioners, from such an array of approaches, to enter into dialogue with each other? For a Movement Director from theatre to swap notes with a ballet Choreographer? For a pioneer in the life-enhancing power of physical play to chat to the Artistic Director of a contemporary dance company?

Shaping the Stage provides such an opportunity with an exciting line-up of guests from all these backgrounds, and more besides.

The event will be chaired by Gary Yershon (Associate Artist of The Old Vic and RSC).

Panel includes: Temitope Ajose-Cutting  (The American Clock Associate Choreographer); Polly Bennett (Movement Director Bohemian Rhapsody, The Crown, Sweat);  Ivan Blackstock (Choreographer & Artistic Director of CRXSS PLATFXRM)Anders Duckworth (Choreographer, Visual Artist); Penny Greenland MBE (JABADAO Director); David Nixon OBE (Northern Ballet Artistic Director); Ayse Tashkiran (Movement Director, RSC Associate Artist, Royal Central School of Speech and Drama).

 COMPOSING THE STAGE Since the time of the Ancient Greeks, composers have written for theatre, and yet their visibility as artists is noticeably less than that of their counterparts in cinema and television. We want to change that. This was the first gathering – as far as we know – of composers who specialise in […].../ ➝

It’s unlikely that when Art premiered at the Comedie des Champs-Elysees in Paris in 1994 anyone could have predicted its global popularity. The West End translation by Christopher Hampton initially featured the heavyweight triumvirate of Albert Finney, Tom Courtenay and Ken Stott and its eight-year run was further populated by a succession of actors and […].../ ➝

“The perversity of Solness’s mind (and of the strange play he inhabits) is given sensory life by Rob Howell’s set, which suggests a charred-wood blueprint out of nightmares; Hugh Vanstone’s lighting; and a score by Gary Yershon that is the sound of megalomania.” New York Times 19th Feb 2016

“Matthew Warchus’s beautifully controlled and intelligent production is all shifting nuance and finely calibrated detail, from Gary Yershon’s subtle score to the faint drift of dry ice that intimates Hilde’s fatal otherworldliness…” Daily Telegraph, 4th Feb 2016
