London Countertechnique Intensive 2022 with Charles Slender-White

Where: Studio Wayne McGregor, London, UK

When: August 29 -September 2, 2022

Over five days, dancers will be offered a comprehensive introduction to Countertechnique. Developed by Anouk van Dijk. Countertechnique is a contemporary dance technique that integrates intellectual intention with physical activity, strengthens and stretches the body, and enables dancers to move bigger, more fluidly, and more spatially.

​In addition to daily Countertechnique classes, the workshop will include discussions about and physical investigations of the Countertechnique Toolbox, Horizontal Falling, Basic Anatomy, Countertechnique in Choreography, Countertechnique in Improvisation, and The Cube (derived from the 9-point technique as developed by Anouk van Dijk, Amanda Miller, and William Forsythe). Each of these sessions will help dancers deepen their Countertechnique practice while facilitating the application of Countertechnique to other dance forms and modalities.

Dancers will be guided through a creative process honed by Fact/SF director Charles Slender-White and his dancers, resulting in a short solo. Most of the day will be spent dancing and learning through do-ing. There will also be some discussion sessions throughout the week to deepen the understanding of these principles.

Charles Slender-White is the Founding and Artistic Director of FACT/SF. He has been a Countertechnique practitioner for 12 years, and is one of 32 Countertechnique Teachers worldwide.
