Choreography Masterclass with Damien Jalet

Workshops & Masterclasses

Join Belgian choreographer Damien Jalet for a workshop exploring the technique and choreography used in his Perth Festival event Vessel.

Co-hosted by STRUT Dance.

Damien Jalet is a French and Belgian freelance choreographer and performer. His work is often collaborative, creating intricate connections between dance and other artistic media such as visual arts (with Antony Gormley, Marina Abramović, Nawa Kohei and Jim Hodges amongst others), fashion (Jean-Paul Lespagnard, Hussein Chalayan, Riccardo Tisci and Bernhard Willhelm), theatre (Arthur Nauzyciel) and music (Fennesz, Loscil, Winter Family, Editors and Florence + the Machine amongst others).

Damien Jalet is laureate of Villa Kujoyama in Kyoto 2015, where he developed Vessel in collaboration with visual artist Kohei Nawa.

STRUT Dance is the National Centre for Choreographic Development, based in Perth. It offers the independent contemporary dance sector internationally benchmarked training, collaboration and performance opportunities that are normally only available to major dance organisations. Ohad Naharin, William Forsythe, Antony Hamilton, Crystal Pite and Punchdrunk’s Maxine Doyle are some of the global leaders now working with the local sector through STRUT’s exclusive model. For maximum benefit, these programs segue directly into a dance artist’s own practice, development and performance outcomes, which is STRUT’s main mandate.

Who should attend? Dance practitioners and performers with a moderate level of experience.

Date and Time: Sat 3 Mar, 10am – 1pm
