Chris' Choreography Inspiration
Chris has been creating choreographic tasks to inspire Guildford Youth Company for their upcoming performance at our Winter Platform.
The Winter's Tale Shakespeare
Winter Platform Blog 2015
The first day of choreographing, with Guildford Youth Group on Wednesday, I taught the group the Statue Sequence, that I had prepared for the youth group. We all looked through the pictures and I told the group about the theme of the week. I also mentioned that the theme is based on the idea of Shakespeare’s Winters Tale and that is what we would be doing for our Winter Platform performance. I feel great that I have been asked to do the choreography, because I recently had experience with choreographing other dance pieces such as The Awakening, Captured By The Dark and Shadowed Voices and I have had great experience through working with Stopgap.
Because the theme for 2015 is Shakespeare, I’m basing it on how people find their way through a cold snowy forest. And they see a lot of Statues that surround them and looking at the branches full of snow falling off the trees to the ground.
I think that the youth group are brilliant to work with because the group have more potential working with each other.
