An essential class for dancers wanting to explore and produce poetry in performance.
The course investigates the relationship between words and gravity through effective use of the body’s anatomy. The dancer who makes dance and poetry from a body in motion deals with an intimate mythology that is raw and textured. In essence the work is to have both the poetry and the dance individuate so they can each be housed by what is being imagined, produced, expressed. In other words the dancer does all necessary to have the choreographic produce lock into the vocals and vice versa.
Technically the areas of bone and muscle in relationship to gravity are worked on to facilitate an integrated speech. Therefor tongue and body must find spatial resonance in imagery and meaning. Poetry then is a three-dimensional changing complex of body, voice, space, form and time. In skillfully combining these elements material is united and woven into the fabric of the dance.
Billie Hanne is a dancer and a poet. She composes dance and poetry in instant choreographies, provocative poetics in the spur of the moment, in the realm of vision and instinct.
Through radical handling of poesy and dance she weaves nature’s sophistication into different textures, tales and geometrics that penetrate skill with grace and lyrical power with rhythm. She has been consistent in her work in this specific area.
In her practice she reimagines tradition and pushes the boundaries of the art form through blending and morphing myth and physical reality. Her pieces are spiritual architectures that layer dissonant forces. She brings her work to different venues from underground studios to established theatres, to galleries and industrial sites. She is currently on tour with her sixth solo piece Deep Brown Sea (2014-2016) which has been shown in London, Amsterdam, Brussels, Den Haag as well as in Greece as and Iceland. With her company Wheelgod she currently refines the latest piece ‘Melchior’ (2015-2016).
Since 2009 she has performed with Allen’s Line, the Julyen Hamilton Company. This includes the latest pieces ‘Goat Ocean’ (2014-2015) and ‘Mud Like Gold (2015-2016) which were shown in different places in Europe.
She is a passionate teacher and able to transmit her wide experience effectively and with zest.
