Dancers age 14 and up are invited to explore the process of creating an original dance theatre work, take class and learn repertoire with Eliza Sanders of House of Sand. Eliza is an independent dance creator and performer who works with highly physical, intricate movement in combination with vocal work. She explores how topics that have been abstracted to become absurd can generate material with a sense of clarity in ambiguity. Workshop participants receive a free standby ticket to her original work Pedal.Peddle on either the 24th or 25th of April.
Eliza was in QL2 Dance’s Quantum Leap ensemble for several years, also taking on many other QL2 projects. She trained at the New Zealand school of Dance and has performed for John Butterflied, Burlesque Inc and WOW Art. She has travelled extensively though Australia and Europe to take part in workshops with practitioners who explore movement and theatrical practises in many different capacities.
