Les Caractères de la Danse: Exploring early ballet through the eyes of a female ballet choreographer/dancer

Location: ODC in San Francisco, California

January 18-20, 2019

Tuition: $200

Teacher: Catherine Turocy

Assistant: Sarah Edgar

Description of The Characters of the Dance Workshop: What did it mean to be a cutting edge female choreographer in the Baroque period? This dance requires the soloist to portray 11 characters of different ages, sexes and social class in 10 minutes without missing a beat! This dance can be performed by any gender, any age, any social class and any ethnicity.

Although the choreography was never published, descriptions of this dance have come down to us through the Mercure de France. Currently thought to be a parody portrayal of the work, this description is nonetheless a link to the past and describes each section of the dance as being a unique portrayal of the 11 faces of humankind where the soloist is asked to change sexes, social class and ages while explaining the complexities of love.

The dance level needed would be the equivalent of an intermediate ballet level. It is not required to have previous Baroque dance instruction. This workshop will also be a unique opportunity to study the expressive dance style of early ballet with this master performer/teacher. Over the past four decades Turocy has not only performed the work internationally, she has choreographed over 7 different versions of the work, at times a solo, at times a duet, and with or without a mask.

Dance forms included in the work are courante, minuet, bouree, chaconne, sarabande, gigue, rigaudon, passepied, gavotte, loure and musette. Each section is quite short, but long enough for the student to gain an understanding of the nature of each form.
