Pete’s workshop will emphasise creativity and exploration of ideas through inspiring and fun tasks.
We will explore the devising process of New Art Club’s dance theatre using physical explorations, improvisation, discussion, verbal and dance based tasks. The aim of the work is to increase understanding of your own creative process as well as to introduce new possibilities for working with
and exploring ideas.
New Art Club was formed in 2001 by Tom Roden and Pete Shenton and is fuelled by their shared spirit of adventure. Loved by audiences and critics alike, they create work which is a unique blend of dance and comedy. "Think Morecambe and Wise at Sadler's Wells." (Bruce Dessau, Chortle) Tom and Pete have been described as ‘the Margot Fonteyn(s) of comedy’, ‘the Reeves and Mortimer of contemporary choreography, ‘the Gilbert & George of dance’ and, likened to comedian/musician Tim Minchin and performance poet Tim Key. "If Flight of the Conchords danced rather than sang they'd be a lot like dance duo New Art Club" (The London Paper) Through its varied activities – creating new work, tours, education and community projects – New Art Club aims to ensure that all its audiences and participants – be they bright eyed or cynical – are entertained by the possibilities of dance and comedy.
