It was good and it was fun. I enjoyed doing it. We did walking around the space using our voices we used different things like hula hoops, buckets we had to travel other side of the room using our body and we had to wear red noses for doing different activity like using an object feeling of it and work with it.

On Thursday 15th of March we had a choreographer Called Rosemary Butcher, she did a workshop with us. We had to do different journeys. We had to lie down and print our body and think about memories. We had to roll into our body’s and we had to connect and touching with another person. We had to use the floor and using parts of your body, we did this using the floor and standing up. Then we had to map a window and imagine it and then we danced to it using different levels and we had to write different journeys and we did drawings of a view from our window.

On Monday 26th and 27th of March we had Daniel to do workshops with us. We had to do different senses and we did listening doing warm up. We used different objects we had to look at the objects like technology things then we had to do improvisations and make a dance then we had to do it in different sections and we had to play with it and work with it using technology. And we improvised with technology.

On Every Wednesday’s we have regular classes we do looking at different kinds of music, walking to the beat and looking at different props we been looking at lighting we did about shadows by using Torches and we had to use eye contact for walking around the space we had to learn routines then we had to do our own dances with the props then we had to dance different kinds of music.

I am writing a short update for the Corali Blog. Here is the short update.

On a Wednesday morning there are 14 people that attend the regular classes at Brixton Arts Space we do a warm up then we do a simple routine. Then we work with partners and develop ideas from the video we watched of Pina Bausch. After that we learned the moves altogether, then we split up in different groups to go over the moves ourselves, then we performed it in 2 lines.

On a Wednesday afternoon we have a student from Middlesex University to work with Corali, she’s called Becky and we do different things like warm up walking around the space, doing memory game and then we created a food personality and opposites routine! Then we split up and went over the routine and with different levels and made it bigger. I liked the hot chilli routine, that was good I enjoyed it.

I do different things like doing letters, addressing envelopes, recycling, photocopying, the franking machine, phone calls and doing the Corali Blog, facebook page and typing meeting minutes. I also answer the phone and record the Out of Office message.
