Summer Training Intensive and Auditions

Summer Training Intensive
Summer Training Intensive

Join HUMANHOOD in the studio for the first ever Summer Training Intensive from 5 to 16 June.

During 2 weeks, from 10:00 to 17:00, you will have the opportunity to fully immerse yourself into HUMANHOOD’s methodology and choreographic style. This is a once-a-year opportunity to train in-person with co-Artistic Directors Julia Robert and Rudi Cole together with HUMANHOOD Company Dancers.

The Summer Training Intensive is for professional & vocational dancers, as well as movement practitioners, who have a passion for HUMANHOOD’s approach to movement. Dancing to the original soundtracks, you will get to embody the extraordinary choreographic style of Julia and Rudi and experience what it is like to move like a HUMANHOOD dancer.

During this intense training you will explore the company’s movement vocabulary and learn full sections of the latest production ∞ {Infinite}. Not only will you receive in-depth insight into company dancers’ internal state of mind when performing the work, but you will also get an introduction to the “closed doors” energetic practices that Julia and Rudi share with the company dancers, which are part of the company’s unique holistic ethos.

The full intensive training is designed as a progressive experience where the level and information shared will intensify as we progress during the two weeks. By the end of the two weeks, participants will share the full 10-20min of the selected repertoire they learned throughout the intensive.

For those attending the full program, the embodiment in the studio will be supported through complimentary activities including free access to B-SIDE Festival and Breakin’Convention’s performance, the screening of our documentary “We, HUMANHOOD”, as well as a city’s discovery guide specifically designed for the occasion by us!

You have the possibility of joining us for one week only or doing the full 2-week intensive training.

Participants who take part in the full 2-week intensive will automatically be invited to audition for the company on 18 June (same venue). See the audition information below and complete the form if you are interested (you do not need to submit a video).
