Live Performance with Contemporary Performance Practice Students at RCS.
Arena resulted from Janice’s work as a visiting artist with CPP students over an academic term in 2011 with 3rd years, sharing skills, knowledge and history of choreography and choreographic practices, process and methods. A real immersion, including the chance to experience ballet class and studying choreographers and their place in dance history. This new work, a collaboration between Janice and the students, was created from both improvisational practices and the choreographic research the students undertook. It was only performed once, at the end of the term, but truly deserved more. The students brilliant and committed then have gone on to make their mark on the world and contribute to society and culture in so many different ways. It was a good year!
