The fantastic James Finnemore is next up to take part in our Dance Stables Sunday Sessions.
Another successful graduate of The Northern School of Contemporary Dance, James Finnemore has excelled in the dance industry. His talent and passion have led to an extensive touring and performance experience. Beginning as an apprentice in Hofesh Shechter’s Company, and continuing on to join further prestigious companies such as Carte Blanche, Olivier Dubois, Gary Clarke and Punchdrunk.
But it is not only in performance that James has triumphed. His own choreography has also been received to great acclaim in the UK and around the world. His solo ‘Patriot’ was awarded ‘Best Choreographic Direction’ at the ACT Festival Bilbao in Spain.
Since 2016 James has been an associate artist at The Point Eastleigh and spends much of his time teaching in various institutions and dance companies, delivering workshops and re-staging work from Hofesh Shechter's repertoire.
So let’s hear about what we can expect from the sessions…
“We will spend most of our time improvising. We will work with imagery so that you might find different qualities or ways of moving, whilst having enough freedom to explore what interests you within that framework. We will perhaps not always use physical starting points, but emotional ones. I will also – after improvising with some specific images – occasionally introduce set exercises in order to find those qualities within the movement material.”
