Intensive with Project A

Friday May 24th 2019 Share page

Artistic Associate Debbi Purtill and company apprentice Jordaine Lincoln led Project A in a week long movement intensive.

Project A is a year long actor training programme delivered at Newcastle Theatre Royal for participants aged 18 - 25. 

Over the past three years balletLORENT have delivered the movement intensive week, supporting the group in their movement development and building their confidence as young aspiring performers. 

Using ballLORENT repertoire as a starting point, Debbi and Jordaine worked with them on their physical and emotional approaches to movement, whilst also exploring partner work skills and different approaches to staging work.

They explored emotional themes and learnt some of the choreography from After Dark, which ended with their own mini version to share with a small audience. 

"They were a brilliantly committed and talented group to work with, Jordaine and I had a great week working with them." Debbi Purtill
