Rosemary Butcher Summer School
Sessions will be divided into two parts:
Training: Working within a directed improvisation the session will explore methods of developing intuitive decision-making within a framed movement language. The class maps physical experience through memory and sensory awareness.
Workshop: Working with the body within movement improvisation structures and specific notation (words, scores, maps etc.) the workshop will focus on strategies for translating the physical experience and exploring the way ideas of Place and Territory can be re-located both physically and mentally.
Biography: Rosemary Butcher made her choreographic debut in 1974, presented a ground-breaking concert at London’s Serpentine Gallery in 1976 and became Resident Choreographer at Riverside Studios in 1978. For the next three decades she has continued to develop her own movement language and choreographic form based around conceptual art, pure movement and a complex use of space that has influenced and inspired three generations of British choreographers, most notably Russell Maliphant and Jonathan Burrows.
Rosemary has increasingly used cross-arts collaboration within the choreographic process and has frequently chosen non-theatrical spaces to present her work. She has collaborated with many artists from visual art, film and music over the years, including Turner Prize finalist Vong Phaophanit on her work SCAN.
Her works have been received to great critical acclaim in both this country and abroad. In 2004 the solo Hidden Voices was nominated for the Place Prize and in 2008 Rosemary was voted Choreographer of the Year by the international publication Ballet Tanz.
Film work Vanishing Point is included on the collection of British Dance Films as part of the DVD ‘Forward Motion” supported by SE Arts and the British Council-2010/11.
In early 2010 Rosemary premiered new works Lapped Translated Lines and Destructive Navigations, and has curated a Festival of Miniatures at Sadlers Wells for autumn 2010.
She has been senior research fellow at the University of Middlesex, London since 2004.
