Red Leap Theatre Workshops for the Manukau Hip Hop Community
18 May 2010
Red Leap Theatre are running a free workshop programme at OMAC on Friday 21
May and Fri 4 June specifically for Manukau residents with a Hip Hop
background. The workshop will be led by Red Leap directors Kate Parker,
Julie Nolan and company member, street dancer Justin Haiu. The aim of the
workshop is to have fun and exchange Hip Hop and devised theatre skills. We
are offering local crews an extra set of tools for their choreographic kit.
Red Leap Theatre are New Zealand's leading movement and image based theatre
company. You can check us out at www.redleaptheatre.co.nz. We have recently
toured our work The Arrival to Sydney Festival, Hong Kong Festival and the
NZ International Arts Festival and are currently developing a new work for
Auckland Festival 2011. We have no scripts. Much like a dance crew we make
our work through a devised process from the combined ideas of our company
members. Recently our productions have not even featured any words, instead
we use highly physical movement and imagery made from our bodies, light and
shadow play, puppetry etc to tell a story. Come along and see what physical
theatre has in common with Hip Hop. What can we learn from one another? What
magic can we make together?
Participants need to be able to attend both sessions on Fri 21 May and
Fri 4 June 10am to 3pm. We have limited places available to get in quick.
