Response Theatre Company is hosting a week-long workshop to continue the development of a new movement technique for dancers and jazz theatre artists alike. Our aim is to combine the presence and awareness of Meisner- Acting Technique with physical movement, developing a way to transform verbal exercises into physical form. Our hope is that this new technique allows dancers to access a new way of practicing presence, accessing impulsive movement, and building a deeper relationship with their music and scene partners simultaneously. 

 

We are looking for mature artists who have a genuine interest in combining the art of dance and acting together, to discover new pathways of mastering their craft. Artists must be available for the entire weeklong workshop, each full day for one full week. To apply for this workshop, please email your name, age, cover letter, and CV to jazzhousetheatre@gmail.com by 5th February 2024.

“It’s very rare that artists who are trained dancers and actors get to fully combine both art forms without diluting either one. My introduction to Response I Movement Method was (miraculously) true to Meisner training, true to my work as a dancer, and committed to my truth as an artist. I believe in the future and power of this technique and feel privileged to have witnessed its birth. I feel that it's added an extra limb to my artist body and know that my movement will never be the same."

"House Of Jazz: Artist Development Program was a wonderful experience. Through their hard work and dedication, Christie and James have created a safe space for creatives to reach their full potential. From the second I met them I felt at ease and was encouraged to become my best self. Over four weeks I got to work with some of the most incredible artists the dance world has to offer thus awakening things inside me that I didn't know were there. I couldn't recommend this program more!"

"We often second guess ourselves before booking intensives or tasters because we question, “Is this going to be good value for money? Am I going to enjoy it? Am I really going to learn anything?” Well, the answer to your questions are unequivocally yes when you book this Alchemy Academy. Christie gives you the tools to find your way in this industry, regardless of what you’ve been told you are or what you must do."

THE DIRECTION

House Of Jazz: Artist Development Program (HOJ ADP) is a post graduate transitional program designed to prepare dance artists for a career in the theatre jazz arts. It is an enlightened approach to dance education, changing the skyline of the entertainment arts by moving young artist into greatness. 

 

We believe the strongest artist trains their trilogy: mind, body, and soul. Our class structure is outlined to follow this structure. 

 

Each day will consist of 4.75 hours of training, commencing with 1.75 hours of study (mind), followed by 1.5 hours of movement (body), concluding the day with 1.5 hours of style or choreography (soul). 

 

HOJ ADP is a four week program, Monday to Friday, 10:15-15:00. During this time you will learn how to master your creative mind, understand your typecast and place within this industry, strengthen your technical foundation, and gain the versatility in the history of jazz movement. 

 

Our program consists of over twenty faculty members, each with an abundance of knowledge and experience ready to share within an intimate classroom setting. Dancers will enjoy learning in a safe yet challenging environment, led by instructors that they can connect to on a professional level.
