Beyond the Training

Beyond the Training is an annual series of skills sharing and professional development workshops aimed at exploring beyond the technique of dance classes. The series supports the Responsive research program at Critical Path, and expands upon the regular contemporary dance class program delivered by Ausdance NSW.

Minimum 15 choreographers/dancers. EOIs due 10 August

In this workshop Chunky Move’s Artistic Director Anouk van Dijk will introduce Countertechnique, the movement method she developed throughout her twenty five year career as dancer, choreographer and teacher. The primary concern of this method is on developing an integrated approach to training, rehearsal and performance. Participants will be given a basic practical insight into the distinct elements that form Countertechnique, and how these can be applied in training and the creative process.

Anouk van Dijk is a choreographer, dancer, Artistic Director and the creator behind the movement system, Countertechnique. She has created more than twenty full-length works that have toured internationally and locally, attracting broad audiences and critical acclaim. Van Dijk is the current Artistic Director of Victoria’s flagship contemporary dance company, Chunky Move.
