Meaning, movement and working from where you’re at
A masterclass with Dan Canham
Dan Canham is a Bristol-based theatre-maker and choreographer, whose work moves between different contexts including large-scale celebratory dance events and movement direction for theatre shows.
In this workshop, Dan will look at how movement can be used to connect to what’s going on inside you, gesture, rhythm, connection to music, and movement as a kind of shedding or reclamation of identity.
Dan’s previous work includes Of Riders & Running Horses and SESSION for his own company, Still House. As a Movement Director, Dan has worked on shows including Sally Cookson’s Jane Eyre and A Monster Calls.
Dan’s masterclass is part of an expanding programme at Tobacco Factory Theatres.
Our theatre owes so much to freelance and independent artists, who have created almost everything we’ve presented over the last 20 years. These exceptionally talented and professional colleagues have been confronted with huge challenges through Covid-19, whilst on the whole receiving far less support than venues.
Last year we partnered with The Cube Microplex to distribute hardship grants to local artists with acute financial difficulties, funded by The Gane Trust.
This year, whilst we continue to work on our long-term survival, we aim to support local artists in new and varied ways.
The first initiative is our Masterclasses Programme, designed for South West-based professional artists, and led by a range of inspiring practitioners.
