Where: Laughton Lodge, East Sussex, UK
When: 6 – 9 September 2018
Deadline for applications: 30 August 2018
This 4-day intensive led by Lost Dog’s Artistic Director, Ben Duke, is open to any performers and makers interested in Lost Dog’s process. The residency will look at some of the tasks that make up Lost Dog’s methodology with a particular emphasis on the ideas involved in Ben Duke’s recent work ‘Goat’ that he made with Rambert and the latest Lost Dog work ‘Juliet & Romeo.’ These tasks will look at the process of drawing inspiration from our own autobiography as well as from the stories we all know. We will be working with a range of physical, theatrical and vocal tasks, that make up part of our devising process.
The days will begin with a warm up contemporary ballet class taught by former Nederlands Dans Theater dancer and LCDS teacher, Pippa Duke. Pippa’s class is deliberately inclusive and accessible to contemporary dancers, often starts with slow somatic exercises on the floor, and focuses on moving freely and expansively through the space. This will be followed by creative sessions led by Ben.
The residency will be based at the idyllic Laughton Lodge near Lewes, a tranquil and inspiring space in the East Sussex countryside, where participants are invited to stay for the duration of the residency.
