As part of ‘Blowup’ the forthcoming exhibition at the Bonhoga Gallery Shetland Arts is offering the opportunity for adults to take part in dance workshops.
‘Blowup’ is an interactive performance environment designed for choreographed performances and public interaction. The work consists of two large video projections in which video imagery of the performers or viewers is manipulated in real-time. These images are cut up, redistributed and distorted by the software so that parts of the body are projected larger or smaller than others depending on how fast they are moving.
It offers a fascinating way of exploring the body and its movement within a defined space. The workshop sessions will be led by choreographer and dancer Sue Hawksley within the interactive environment.
There are three workshops available on Saturday 1st , Sunday 2nd and Monday 3rd October from 5.00 pm – 7.30 pm. They might be of particular interest to individuals/pairs or those who might wish to develop the ideas with existing groups (dance teachers etc) with a view to the group getting the most from the exhibition. Alternatively, it might just be good fun.
Places on the workshops are free but are limited to just 6 places per session, so advance booking is essential. Places can be booked on the Shetland Box Office on 01595 745555 or www.shetlandboxoffice.org
