JOS BAKER (peeping tom)
when: 1st and 2nd july 2017 / 10:00am – 2:00pm
where: Berlin, Germany
CREATION FOR PERFORMANCE
how do we find evocative and specific dance-theatre material for the stage? during his time working in this area, jos has developed a toolkit of approaches and initiations for generating material that might play on the strengths and personality of the individual, in the attempt to find unique and specialised movement and characterisations.
while there are no definitive answers about what makes someone a great performer, there are some important questions. through a series of tasks and conversations, we try to get closer to some answers and discover how sometimes small changes can transform how we are seen. some people might be born with it, but most of us need to practice.
this workshop is suitable for different types of performers (dancers, actors, musicians, circus artists etc)
from 2008 to 2014, jos worked for peeping tom as a creator and performer in “32 rue vandenbranden” and “á louer”. he has since done various work for stage and screen and makes his own work including “what do you do?” , “we were youth” (2016) “tidal breathing”  and “of no fixed abode” [ongoing].
jos teaches all over the world for dance schools and festivals. jos started his dance training with oxford youth dance and then the laban center, london and parts (performing arts research and training studios).
