Educational workshops with State of Emergency in InspirED Schools based on themes such as Identity, belonging and human migration.
Where Is Home? is the new touring production from State of Emergency - an international collaboration between SOE and artists from the UK, South Africa and the USA, presenting great music and dance from South Africa, mixed with urban culture from London and LA, and re-telling a 1000 year old tale. The story is of a young man from Soweto who seeks his fortune in a far- away city, examining themes of identity, belonging, self- realisation and human migration along the way.
InspirED are offering discounted rates for InspirED Subscribing Schools to work with the company ahead of their performance of Where Is Home? at The Brewhouse Theatre this May. If you would like further information on either of the following workshops please email email@example.com
Taster Workshops for School children aged 7 upwards (KS2 and KS3) and FE
A ‘one-off’ practical dance session exploring themes from the show. As well as providing the group with a forum for discussion, a taster workshop will always provide an enjoyable introduction to dance for any groups who have had a lot, a little or no previous experience of dance, as workshops will be tailored to ability and experience.
Masterclasses: for GCSE and A Level students, FE
These give more experienced dance students (GCSE upwards) a chance to do a Company technique class, learn excerpts from the repertoire and explore the themes and issues raised in the work. These sessions give the students a chance to learn about how the choreographer works, and draw upon student’s own ideas and creativity. These sessions would also be of use to teachers looking for new ideas and approaches to dance vocabulary and teaching methods, and can be tailor-made to suit teachers’ and lecturers’ needs. These sessions can also include lecture demonstrations and Q+A opportunities with the dancers where they are available.
