SUMMER/WINTER SCHOOLS

WINTER SCHOOL

Winter School is aimed at school learners in Grades 10 – 12 who have a strong interest in Dance and Physical Theatre. This is a one week programme that offers its participants back to back technique classes and workshops provided by The Forgotten Angle Theatre Collaborative and guest teachers from the Professional dance industry. Winter School gives these learners the opportunity to immerse themselves in the context of a professional dance company and to be taught by Industry Professionals at the top of their field. Classes and workshops expose participants to a variety of approaches, techniques and styles within the Contemporary Dance and Physical Theatre context. Winter School takes place in June each year. FATC publishes information and invitations for application for participation in May each year. For more information on Winter School please direct your queries to: education@forgottenangle.co.za

SUMMER SCHOOL

This intensive two week programme is open to young artists, emerging professionals and students of dance in their final years of study. Through daily technique classes, workshops and discussion sessions led by FATC company members and guest facilitators, Summer School offers its participants the opportunity to immerse themselves in various approaches to dance training and dance-making. Summer School is focussed on providing participants with creative strategies in the processes of dance-making. These strategies seek to boost the creative resources of participants both as performers and theatre-makers. Through its Summer School Programme FATC seeks to: inspire young students of arts and emerging professionals to continue working and developing in their respective ‘home’ environments; provide invaluable skills for artists from diverse backgrounds to take back to their communities of origin; and to provide a platform for new interactions, dialogue and future collaborations. Summer School usually takes place in November each year. FATC publishes information and invitations for application for participation in October each year.
