If you are attending the class starting at 11.30 please be punctual; if you are late, please enter the room quietly so as not to disturb the class. Greetings to colleagues can be made at lunchtime.
1130 – 1300 Room 101: Ring Time – a new piece for movement by Sally Beamish
Ring Time was commissioned by Jean Middlemiss to celebrate DUK’s centenary. The 30-minute documentary film about the making of the première, which took place in Glasgow last October, will be shown. Monica Wilkinson, who directed the project, will introduce the Ring Time Education Pack and answer questions before we start to create movement for the theme of one the seven short movements.
The cafeteria will be open, and there are many places nearby where you can purchase food – or you may bring your own packed lunch.
1400-1445 Room 101: Ring Time continued
Working in groups of three, participants will continue to create a plastique animée for one of the three canons in Ring Time. It is hoped that this activity will whet your appetite and lead to Ring Time partnerships which will introduce many more people to Dalcroze.
1500 Annual General Meeting (Room 101)
Car parking: There is free on-street parking around City Lit on Sundays, with good availability if you arrive in the morning. The area is mostly offices, so is not that busy on Sundays, and visitors to Covent Garden tend to come by public transport. You are advised to read the signs carefully, however, as some parking is residents only.
