We're delighted to be leading the Professional Class at Rambert from the 17th to 21st October. Join us!
About the class
The class will explore movement dynamics and creative ideas through a range of drills, technique, improvised phrases and choreographic elements.
Finding flow, floor work, grounding the body, rhythmic patterns and organic responses to musical and other stimuli, as well as composing and decomposing movement will be part of the sessions.
Using a blend of vocabularies from contemporary dance and influences from hip hop styles, the class is aimed to help professional dancers find organic ways to play with movement, dynamics and creative elements.
Back2basix’s approach to dance, both creatively and in education, focuses on a continuous exploration and play with the elements of movement and how they can be altered, initiated and composed on their own and in contact with other stimuli.
Founded and directed by twins Leah and Marta, their first work together was the movement direction and choreography for the visual EP ‘Tales of Falling Walls’ and ‘Love, Lust, Misery’ for music artist Jimmy Brixton, an edgy visual work that led them to establish the company. They have since produced a variety of works, led workshops for movers from a wide variety of backgrounds and collaborated with organisations including Greenwich Dance, Invisible Dances London (Elisabeth Schilling), Cleopatras Worldwide, 64 Million Artists, MØTUS Dance, Fieldworks Dance, Imperial College or Emma Cons Gardens.
Both Leah and Marta are also freelance dance artists and company members of Instigate Unknown; their individual credits across the independent scene, TV, film and education include IUtBF (Eddie Sternberg), Open Arts Surgery (Breakin’ Convention), UEL, Danceworks London, GDIF (Crystal Palace), Netflix, No Limit Amsterdam, the Playground by Rambert, 7 Days 7 Causes (Ginga Capoeira Brasil), UCL, Move It, Morley College, Amex Gold TVC, Trip Project.
