Practising Performance events 2017/18

MARTIN LAWRENCE

27 APRIL 2018
14.00-16.30 RECITAL ROOM, FACULTY OF MUSIC
UNLOCK YOUR PERFORMANCE POTENTIAL WITH MARTIN LAWRENCE

Martin Lawrence, horn player in the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, musical coach and PhD researcher in performance anxiety, leads a workshop exploring how to unlock your performance potential.

"the dizziness of freedom", opens up "the possibility of possibility"

Kierkegaard

 

 

  • What is a good performance? Is it just correct?
  • Can we put our real self into it? Who is our real self?
  • Is it who we intend to be, or who we are at this moment on stage?
  • How free can we be? How free dare we be?

This class is perfectly timed for students taking the recital options in the Tripos but will also be of interest to everyone who performs. Whether or not we feel conventionally 'nervous' on stage, there is always more potential to discover in our own performances.


Baroque Dance

POSTPONED UNTIL MICHAELMAS 2018
INTRODUCTION TO BAROQUE DANCE WITH MARY COLLINS

The final class of the term is open to all, and no experience of dancing is necessary. Mary Collins will deliver a practical introduction to the popular dances which underpin Baroque and later repertoire. By recognising the features, patterns and characters of each dance form, musicians can discover ways to realise and interpret dance-based music with a fresh perspective, resulting in exciting, historically informed performances. The workshop will include a basic introduction to the steps and style of key dances.

Comfortable, unrestricted clothing is advisable, as is footwear which permits the dancers to raise the heels and move easily on the balls of the feet.http://marycollins.co.uk  

Here is an excellent introduction to Mary's work.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GTLlenIc6YQ
