Moving for purpose, moving for function, moving for desire, moving for survival. In this workshop Luke will work with participants to build physical tools and apply them choreographically. Harnessing the potential inside forces of gravity, coil, momentum and drifting, movement tasks will explore efficiency of effort, muscularity and build complex sequences around ideas of balance, disorientation and spatial expectations. Using adaptations of Stanislavski systems the workshop will challenge participants to apply existing and new skills in unfamiliar physical, emotional and psychological directions to examine relationships between movement, purpose and meaning for performers and audiences. The workshop is accompanied by Luke’s solo performance work The Milkyboy Kid Project a stripped down exploration of character, archetype, expectation and fantasy and the portrayal or pursuit of ones own identity both on and off stage.
‘Sometimes personal, sometimes profane Luke uses his own questions, experiences and battles to explore the search for truth admist a life in fiction. Through a mixture of storytelling, film and his own virtuostic physicality Luke examines relationships between who you are, who you want to be and who you pretend to be and how nurishing one can obscure the other. Embracing the notion of transformation Luke puts himself in a contstant state of change throughout the work; the hero, the villain, the coward, the show man, the leader, the child- each character emerges and dissapates through an ongoing search for the right uniform or the right skin’
