Seven Steps to Seven Falls

Seven Steps to Seven Falls: Workshops
Tuesday 23rd & Friday 26th, 10am-1pm
FREE – RSVP required

Part of TwoFold: a festival of duet performance

Over two 3-hour sessions led by Teresa Brayshaw & Karen Christopher will take seven steps to prepare for a group of participants to be ready to perform within the structure of their promenade performance, Seven Falls. The contribution of the workshop group may take the form of an intervention, an echo, a commentary, a performative guide or some other kind of action conceived during the workshop by the performers themselves. Participants are encouraged to take a variety of roles to support the promenade performance.

The seven steps are the following:

1) become familiar with the existing Seven Falls material

2) compose responses singly and in groups

3) consider a variety of forms the responses might take

4) reconsider

5) recombine

6) negotiate final decisions

7) refine final contributions.

In addition to the two workshop mornings, participants of this workshop will be required to attend a walk through of material from 11am to 1:30pm on the day of the show and will present the fruits of their collaborative negotiations and creative compositions as part of the performance of Seven Falls at 3pm on 27th May 2017. This performance is a promenade piece and takes place outdoors.
