The Middleton Corpus (UK) Professional Workshop
Category: workshop, Closes on November 4, 2017
At the culmination of their current process, creating new piece 'Seedling', 'theMiddletonCorpus' are offering an opportunity to join Anthony Middleton (Artistic Director) & company members in the studio at 'Dance Studio Leeds', for a workshop exploring the seamless combination of acrobatics and dance.
Anthony's unique language and aesthetic, with 'theMiddletonCorpus', explores the fluid integration of acrobatic skills and dance, creating what he describes as 'sculptural dance'.
"Rather than the focus simply being upon the physical prowess and skill of acrobatics, I wanted to explore a way to uncover the inherent ability for physical language, bodies working together, trusting each other; and utilise that language to 'speak' about concepts. It's not what we are necessarily doing, but 'how' we are doing it." - Anthony Middleton (Artistic Director)
This workshop will be an opportunity for those interested in partner-work, contact and acrobatics, to experience Anthony's individual approach to exploring and creating materials, as well as learning repertoire from their new work.
Date | 4th November 2017
Time | 1pm - 4:30pm (studio available until 5pm for cool down, stretch and chat)
Location | Studio 3, Dance Studio Leeds, Mabgate Mills, Leeds. LS9 7SW
Cost | £12 (£10 for students)
Suitability | Professional dancers/artists, students of dance (18+) or people with some experience of working with the body (no experience of acrobatics is necessary).
Limited spaces | Due to limited spaces on this workshop, we kindly advise people to book in advance
To book | Please book in advance by email: [email protected]
- We will process payment through bank transfer

Choreomatch (UK) Professional Commission
Category: opportunity, Closes on September 14, 2017
After our successful pilot of ChoreoMatch in 2016, we are pleased to announce that ChoreoMatch returns, this time bigger and better! ChoreoMatch is about giving dancers and choreographers the chance to play and experiment with an untested idea, and meet new collaborators in the West Midlands. ChoreoMatch is supported by DanceXchange.
We are looking for a choreographer and up to three dancers to research an untested idea (brought by the commissioned choreographer) in a studio for 10 days. We will select all of the artists involved following a rigorous application process.
Whether you are an experienced choreographer who wants to try something new without the pressure of delivery, or an early career choreographer looking for a way to make new work, this is the commission for you. We are interested in hearing from people across the career spectrum.
The choreographer will bring the idea they want to research, and will be responsible for leading the process. The dancers' role will be to dive into the choreographer's process, assist them in their research, challenge them where necessary and work together to bring their ideas to life. BDN will bring the team together from the applications they receive. The dancers and choreographers may never have met before... It's a bit like internet dating*.
We are looking for bold, brave, open minded dancers and choreographers who are prepared to take risks. The team will be stepping into the unknown and putting their faith in the process by working on a completely new concept with a completely new group of artists, and then sharing an extract of the work with an audience who will give direct written feedback.
It's risky. It's unpredictable. It's an opportunity to try out that idea that keeps you awake at night. It could be the start of something beautiful - it could be a perfect match....
*It's nothing like internet dating...
Birmingham Dance Network is an artist lead organisation that aims to create new models of practice and opportunities for dance artists, specifically those based in the West Midlands.
ChoreoMatch choreographer = £1300 (£650p/week)
ChoreoMatch dancer = £920 (£460 p/week)
Budget for props/ costume: £100
Dancers and choreographers based in the West Midlands will be prioritised for this commission, however we are open to and welcome submissions from artists based outside the region (if you're application is strong enough we may not be able to refuse it).
Want to apply? You can apply as a dancer, choreographer, or both

Joss Carter Professional Workshop (UK)
Category: workshop, Closes on June 4, 2017
This 7 hour workshop will explore the core fundamentals of Joss' specific movement techniques, choreographic practises and artistic ideologies.
We will commence with a group introduction to communicate a self-awareness of each individual's current states of being creating an open, safe and respectful habitat before progressing to an in-depth approach to the radical techniques of Joss' distinctive training, choreographic and performance methods.
We shall first focus on establishing and exhausting the body through technical and primitive forms of stimulating yet self-disciplined actions/reactions. By incorporating shaking, bouncing, falling, and the expansion and contraction of the kinesphere through reaching with a conscious application of voice and a forced breath we shall begin to energise and unlock the corporeal existence of one-self.
Within this we will explore the intensity of the raw and physical extremes of power and tension to understand a sophistication of softness and relaxation within the 'FLESH and BONE', aiming to strip away the the ego and obtain ecstatic states of purification, liberation and mindfulness in the soul through a safe practise of technicality.
This class will naturally evolve into the conceptual and choreographic explorations of Joss' creative processes including but not limited to:
The discovery of anatomical distortions and obscurities.
Written and vocal text work.
Structured theatrical improvisations with the use of physical imagery.
Group creation of set material.
Choreographic tasks and experiments.
Self-analysis, observations, and group discussions.
Life drawing (paper and pens provided)
Self-discipline, sacrifice, purging and mortification of the physical and mental being is vital to not only expand artistic identity, but to also infiltrate and educate the wellbeing and dexterity of each individual. Through a non-judgemental, honest, caring, sensitive and intimate environment we shall recognise the importance of independence, camaraderie, self contemplation and social congregation.
