Elevator Repair Service: Choreography & Text: Translating Source Material into Performance

At the end of June, Brighton venue The Basement will be hosting a workshop from the seminal New York-based performance company Elevator Repair Service. Scheduled as the first in a series of workshops by leading international performers and performance companies, Choreography & Text: Translating Source Material into Performance will explore the approaches to performance that are embodied in the company’s own work. Four members of the ensemble will conduct the workshop, led by Elevator artistic director John Collins.

Application process: spaces on the workshop are limited and the organisers expect a high demand for places. Applicants are requested to send a short description (strictly no more than one page of A4) of their practice and how they believe the workshop will be beneficial to their artistic development, and links to video documentation of their work. The Basement will be able to provide a list of reasonably priced accommodation on request.

Dates: 24 June – 26 June 2012
Price: £50

Applications should be sent to Abby Butcher: abby@thebasement.uk.com

The closing date for applications is 4 June 2012 at 10am. Successful applicants will be informed by 8 June.

The Choreography & Text: Translating Source Material into Performance workshop is presented as part of east.by.south.east, a project designed to enrich and strengthen practices and infrastructure for contemporary performance in the East and South East regions.

Elevator Repair Service will be performing GATZ at the Noël Coward Theatre in London 8-15 July as part of LIFT.
