Johanna Chemnitz and Dolores Hulan from 7 Pleasures will present a masterclass for professional dancers.
The masterclass will begin with bodywork that leads towards working and experimenting with some of the material of Mette Ingvartsen’s piece 7 Pleasures, which Dolores and Johanna took part in the creation of, and are performing in during Melbourne Festival. There will be time to practice notions such as ‘viscosity’, ‘shaking’ and possibly some voice work—followed by a discussion.
