Calling dance artists: Gary Clarke Training Event

We are excited to announce the first of our community dance training events will take place on 14th & 15th April 2023 with no other than the Gary Clarke Dance Company! Join Artistic Director Gary Clarke himself and GCC dancer Shelley Eva Haden as they share their toolkit for working within communities.

Gary Clarke has developed a wealth of choreographic experience in creating site-specific works (in pubs, clubs, graveyards and galleries) as well as full-length productions for stage.  He is currently regarded as one of the UK’s leading independent dance artists who has received great appreciation for his work as a Choreographer, Director, Performer, Mentor, Teacher and Facilitator.

These events form the start of an on-going relationship with the Yorkshire-based project highly renown for producing contemporary dance theatre that comments on both popular and political culture.

The workshops are aimed at Northern Ireland based community dance artists looking to enhance their practice in sharing skills in a community context.  It will be a great opportunity to network too.

They will take place in The Factory at the MAC Belfast at 10am-4pm on 14th April and 10am-2pm on 15th April
