THEATRE WORKS: dance making – the use of the voice – the making of text
by Julyen Hamilton
About the workshop:
Making dances… making sounds, texts, dialogues, monologues… and finding their collective coherence.
Creative performance making for the 2020’s.
This course is intended for those with a committed enthusiasm for making and performing; it is aimed for those with an interest to enter the rigorous work entailed in using the voice on stage.
JULYEN HAMILTON is a dancer / choreographer / poet / teacher / musician. He has been making and performing dances for 45 years throughout the world. Born and brought up in England he trained in London in the 1970’s, a time of radical experimentation, he has been an exponent of innovative performance since that time. His work is mostly improvised : he composes dance works instantly as well as the texts which often accompany them.
His work with text is unique. It fuses naturally his long-term writing practice with his refined skills in dancing.
When working with his company ALLEN’S LINE he directs dancers and lighting designers to make and perform work through this same immediacy.
Since the 80’s he has performed constantly in close collaboration with many of the highest quality musicians from all over Europe. It is with some of these musicians that he gives readings of his poetry.
He is at present performing the solos ‘INTERVIEW’and ‘HELD DEAR’ and performing with bass player Barre Phillips amongst many others.
With his company ALLEN’S LINE, he has been performing their latest piece ‘BURST’ in Rome, Paris, Bruxelles and France.
They will perform their latest piece “THIRST” during 2022.
As a pianist he plays regularly with Hamilton Carroll in Berlin and Brussels. Their first cd ‘POINTER’ was released in 2016.
His label ‘BLUEDOG PUBLISHING.net’ produces videos of his performances on DVD. CDs and print. His new poetry album ‘Jack Gets Out of Prison’ with bassist Wilbert de Joode was released in 2018.
