Morning: Attack Release – The centre of the body as the origins of dynamics.

Jose’s technique class is fast paced and aims to improve stamina through
precise and simple movement patterns. The principles of the class are
influenced by a diversity of traditional forms such as Kathak, Flamenco and
martial arts, which are brought into a contemporary dance context.

The initial warm up is followed by more complex movement material with a
dynamic focus on the concept of ‘attack and release’. With a passion for
rhythm, Jose often uses counts to influence the dynamic of the movement
and spinning to engage the core. All of this work prepares the body to travel
– exploring the broadest movement in space, whilst making fast, clean
transitions from large to detailed

 

Afternoon: HERO-INE

Participants will learn repertoire from Jose’s new creation HERO-INE. The piece is inspired by the book the hero’s journey by Joseph Campbell and how to find the hero in each of us. We will work with the different stages of our journey: call to adventure, challenges, transformation and return.

There will be elements of learning taught material as well as task-based
exercises to create movement and narrative.

 

Level: Suitable for choreographers, vocational and professional level dancers.

Bio

Jose started his career in Andalusia where he began performing in musical theatre and as a Flamenco dancer. Slowly the world of contemporary dance became more visible as he worked throughout Europe performing with Charleroi/Danses, Ballet de Marseille, T.R.A.S.H, Shobana Jeyasingh Dance and Akram Khan Company.
From 2010-2017, Jose worked on seven creations with Akram Khan Company as a choreographic assistant, rehearsal director and dancer. During this time, Jose studied Kathak under Akram’s guidance. Finding many parallels between this training and his early studies of Flamenco, Jose reconnected with his roots and began to explore traditional forms in a contemporary context. As a result, he established Agudo Dance Company in 2017, touring the inaugural work Silk Road in 6 countries, followed by a stunning adaptation of Carmen, which continues to tour in 2022.
Jose’s independent choreographic commissions include productions for Phoenix Dance Theatre, ZfinMalta Dance Ensemble, ACE Dance and Music, Cape Dance Company, Norrdans, Akademi, London Mozart Players, Festival International de Music y Danza de Granada, SEAD/Bodhi Project, Area Jeune Ballet, Rambert School, English National Ballet School, London Contemporary Dance School, London Studio Centre, and Northern School of Contemporary Dance.
In 2019, Jose choreographed the opening ceremony of the Davis Cup by Rakuten in Madrid. He is listed in the new edition of 50 Contemporary Choreographers, an international publication by Routledge.
