FOLEY LAB is for dancers with an ongoing performance practice,Researching the intertwining of music and dance, through the lens of performance, presence and composition. Since December 2015 interdisciplinary artist and CDS Artist Member, Jan Lee has been experimenting with dancers on creating new forms of expression using musical structures and the timing of intentions as a way into creating a form of music driven by physicality and the ‘playing’ of things.With an ethos of autonomy, we will draw inspiration from scores to facilitate hybrid forms and foley artists who perform sound effects for film using everyday objects.This research builds on Jan Lee’s ongoing work integrating movement and sound in different performance mediums, including dance theatre, music improvisation and interactive installations for a participating audience.Lab Dates: 28 April to 19 May 9 June to 30 June 10am – 12pm .

Please note these labs are not classes, but research sessions. For experienced dancers and movement-based performers.
