Art of Tarab- Bellydance Workshop with Kirsty
16 October 11am
Tarab describes deep, stirring music that causes a deep emotional response of yearning, beauty and timelessness in the audience and dancers. Kirsty’s two hour belly dance workshop will delve into the intricacies of dancing to Tarab music and cover the history of Tarab music in belly dance. Using a combination of improvisation and musicality drills and choreography students will walk away with new styling and movement combinations to interpret and perform to this unique music.
Bratlesque with Artemis
16 October 11am
Tired of being a well behaved, balanced & mature adult (or cosplaying it for The Man?). It’s time to get down on the floor (or surface most suited to your mobility needs) & chuck the sexiest tantrum you’ve ever thrown. Why be chill when you can be surreal & unhinged? Come and be on your worst behaviour with Artemis Seven & make the audience beg for the brat.
We’ll go over some classic bratty moves, how the brat archetype can help you improvise & reinstate boundaries with an audience, and then learn a fun and deeply ridiculous group act- with a bonus performance opportunity* if you feel like trying it out on an audience!
This workshop is suitable for all levels & requires no previous dance or performance experience!
We will be learning a group act to perform at Bangarang on the 28th October. You do not have to perform if you take the workshop, but the option is open if you want to! The act is designed to be personalised & easy to pick up quickly, so you can decide after the workshop how you feel, or just come to have fun & let off some steam.
- Whatever makes you feel bratty, sexy, cute - but gives you flexibility of movement!
- Hydration! Chucking a tantrum is thirsty work.
Drag and Stage Make Up with Jazida - Spring Out Edition
30 October 4pm
SPRING OUT SPECIAL
Come along and learn some of Jazida’s tips and tricks for using make up to paint for stage in this 3-hour workshop.
Techniques we’ll be exploring include contouring, eyebrow blocking, glitter application creating cut creases, painting for the stage vs day, ensuring you make up lasts longer and more.
Please bring along your make up kit, a mirror, notepad and pen (if you want to take notes).
You can paint your own face over the course of the workshop or choose to just watch/take notes if you desire. We’ll explore how you can utilise the make up that you already own.
However, Jazida recommends at a minimum to have foundation, contour/highlight, setting powder, white eyeliner/crayon, black liquid liner, eye shadows and blush, lipstick, eyelash glue, false eyelashes and glitter. If you want to try blocking your eyebrows, please bring a glue stick.
Don’t forget we have a Livestream link for shows and also for Workshops!
