Archive to Applause - Dancing with the Ghosts of Burlesque

Workshop with Alyssa Kitt

In association with the Australian Burlesque Museum Exhibition in Canberra (https://www.facebook.com/events/162363442498863), we are proud to present a day of workshops on 13 June at Flazeda.

WORKSHOP INFO:

Burlesque is a historical art & we represent a rich, queer theatrical legacy. Dig into the archives to evoke historical ghosts, channel feminist flappers and follies,sling off the sheen of celluloid dreams & grind with the gritty ghost gals of downtown dime house Burly Q clubs.

From fragments of faded feathers and smirking sepia strips, we can consciously create contemporary pas de deux with the legends, who have laid in mothball trunks of yore. But how do we bring our modern insights, ingenuity, influence and innovation in line with honouring the visions of our originators and understand how to perform what WAS sexy 50-100 years ago?

Bring their legacies to life to continue our fanciful stripping genealogy in this 90-minute workshop with Burlesque Historian Alyssa Kitt! You will learn how to embody the legends, tease out their choreography & develop a historically accurate repertoire of movement patterns that dance in duet with the archive.

Create homage and tribute acts from archival research, and bring the sparkling strippers of the Golden Age to contemporary imagination across aspects of choreography, costume, gesture and expression that intermingles with feminist interventions into the archive.

BRING: An open mind and heart, your fine self, your performance shoes, notebook & one item of historical inspiration - be it a glove, panel skirt, favourite photograph or video clip that you’re working on developing into a new or existing routine. (I will have some of my own VERY special collections of items on display too).

Suitable for: Beginners or professionals - whoever you are in whatever body you beautifully possess - this class is open to any expression of gender identity.

The Sparkling Stage - Rethinking Space and Spectorship in Burlesque

Workshop with Alyssa Kitt

In association with the Australian Burlesque Museum Exhibition in Canberra (https://www.facebook.com/events/162363442498863), we are proud to present a day of workshops on 13 June at Flazeda.

WORKSHOP INFO:

Space. Endless emptiness or endless possibility? The stage - four corners, a platform between you and the audience. How do we use it effectively, how do we harness the energy within, between and abounding beyond? Why simply “use” space, when we can morph spatial barriers into fluid fantasy.

Have you read that you need to “use the space” of the stage, and automatically assumed this means you need to run across every inch of the stage, move around constantly? You’re not alone!

In this unique workshop, Alyssa turns theories on the architecture of stage space into practice, breaking apart notions of what it means for the burlesque artist to inhabit the performance space.

In this 60/90-minute workshop, world burlesque heavyweight and theatre PhD candidate Alyssa Kitt combines performance theory with passionate, unconventional techniques to teach you how to defy the rules of theatre, build and shatter illusions, and create lasting memories for your audience, ultimately creating a space for dialogue and exchange.

Join Alyssa for one of her last Australian workshops before she heads to the United States to complete her Doctoral studies at City University New York
