Moving Through Acrobatics workshop, Bristol

Moving Through Acrobatics – Bristol

Dance and Circus Artists Gabbie Cook and Nat Whittingham are teaching a 2-day dance
and acrobatics workshop based on the principles of their training and experience. Get
ready for movement, floorwork and acrobatics! The aim is to gain strength and confidence
in acrobatics whilst developing your style, to become a more versatile mover.
We want to make acrobatics accessible for DANCERS, so they can use the strength and
co-ordination they already have in inverted and unfamiliar movements. Likewise, it will
provide ACROBATS with creative tools and techniques, taken from dance, to feel how
release-based work can influence their movement style and acrobatic aesthetic. However,
this workshop is open to ALL movers and we encourage you to come and train with us
knowing that you can work safely and progress over the two days.

TRUK presents Joe Farr at The Island, Bristol

TRUK presents : JoeFarr – Manni Dee

TRUK presents : JoeFarr – Manni Dee

After the success of our first event in Bristol, TRUK return to host two of the finest techno artists in the UK, JoeFarr and Manni Dee.

JoeFarr (User Experience / Leisure System / Onnset)
JoeFarr is widely regarded as a skilled craftsman of electronic music, having flourished quickly since he first emerged in 2011 to become an identifiable name within the underground scene.
In 5 short years he’s built an impressive body of work, including recent productions on Bloc, Leisure System and Turbo, which have secured him a reputation as a forward thinking, innovative and inspiring musical talent. His massively anticipated LP ‘Sense of Purpose’ was released on Bloc Records. Be sure to look out for his raw, live hardware shows and ever evolving DJ sets.

Manni Dee (Perc Trax / Earwiggle / Leyla / Osiris Music)
Manni Dee’s techno smells something like burning rubber. Since 2013’s ‘Pareidolia’ EP, the London-based producer and DJ has been turning out breakneck warehouse fillers with an ear for the unsettled. He has become a repeat offender on Ali Wells fronted Perc Trax, culminating in the anarchic ‘Throbs Of Discontent’ EP. Manni has also seen releases on imprints such as Leyla and Osiris, petrol-fuelled offerings such as ‘Cameron On A Guillotine’ offset by skippier exploits, like the disjointed mechanics of ‘Romantic Self’. As a DJ, he has performed at some of the world’s premier techno haunts, including the underground’s most public frontier, Berghain, and midlands bass-dungeon House of God.

Support –
Krash (TRUK)
Exocet (TRUK)
Tavis Hitchcock (SHFTD)

Details about GAGA

GAGA/DANCERS classes are open to professional dancers or advanced dance students (ages 16+). These classes are taught by dancers who have worked closely with Ohad Naharin. GAGA/DANCERS classes employ the specific vocabulary and skills that are part and parcel of a dancer’s knowledge.

The class works with the layering of familiar movements with GAGA and present dancers with fresh challenges, and throughout the class teachers prompt the dancers to visit more unfamiliar places. GAGA deepens the dancers awareness of physical sensations and enriches their movement quality with a wide range of textures.

“We are moving without any stop, all together, to ride on ongoing movement that is moving inside our bodies constantly without using mirrors.”

Your teacher:

Topping bill atThe Island we have the enigmatic genius Joe; playing in the city for the first time in almost four years! The timing couldn’t be better either given the huge levels of hype surrounding the modest maestro’s brand new ‘Tail Lift / MPH’ EP which which marked his return to Hessle Audio just a few weeks ago. His sets have always been famed for their genre-hopping unpredictability and have a genuine sense of theatre about them. Berlin’s rRoxymore will be flying over for us and is also making a well timed return to the South West with her mesmerising new ‘Thoughts of an Introvert Part 1’ EP coming out this month on the highly regarded Don’t Be Afraid imprint. Finally we havePretty Pretty Good resident and VERSION signee Yak getting things started for us while making his Bristol debut. Seriously, this is not one to miss!
