Building on the success of the IF festival pilot in 2018, delivered in partnership with Lancaster Arts, LPM will be bringing IF to Lancaster in April 2020. The festival will bring together a wealth of expertise in a broad range of inclusive practice, including dance for health, dance & disability, dance & education, dance & early years and somatic practices. The programme will feature performances, workshops and presentations.
Full programme will be announced shortly.
Lewis will lead a Contact Improvisation and contemporary partnering skills workshop. The focus will be on listening through touch. In the latter part of the day the prescribed patterns and exercises will give way to scores and explorations with more space and time for integration. This will be to encourage liberation from the formality of technique and learned material, into dancing that is more personal, spontaneous, intuitive, and exciting. It will be a fun, physically demanding day suitable for all levels and backgrounds with professional experience.
Lewis trained at London Contemporary Dance School, and there began his journey into Contact Improvisation. He graduated in 2009, and has since performed with choreographers and companies including; Tom Dale, TrashDollys, Jean Abreu, Léa Tirabasso, Riccardo Buscarini, Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake, Richard Alston, The National Theatre for Angels in America directed by Marianne Elliot, and Scottish Dance Theatre. While dancing for Scottish Dance Theatre he performed in existing repertoire by Hofesh Shechter, Liv Lorent, and Fleur Darkin; and in new creations with Victor Quijada, Jo Stromgren, Damien Jalet and Jorge Crecis. Lewis began teaching professionally in 2012, and has been specialising his pedagogy towards Contact Improvisation since 2014. He teaches CI and floor work for open and company professional classes in the UK and abroad, and has recently taught for DV8 Physical Theatre. Lewis teaches regularly on the degree programmes at London Contemporary, London Studio Centre, and Rambert School. He has also taught at European festivals including; Pyrenees Dance, Agitart Figueres Es Mou, and B12 festival Berlin.
