Eastman Summer Intensive 2019


and Artistic Director Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui proudly announce the 2019 edition of the Eastman Summer Intensive, a workshop program for professional dancers and dance students age 18+. During six workshop days, the participants work intensively with the artistic team of Eastman to enrich their skills and to learn innovative approaches towards movement and choreography, focusing on the dance culture of Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui. 

This year we offer a unique opportunity to a group of 50 dancers to meet and train whilst focussing on one of two recent repertory pieces of Eastman. Dancers from the cast will provide professional guidance and feedback. Group A will explore the movement material from the opera Satyagraha, which premiered in 2017 at Theater Basel. Group B delves into Stoic from 2018, the latest creation with GöteborgsOperans Danskompani. In the morning we offer a variety of guest classes by Eastman dancers and professional teachers.

The Eastman Summer Intensive is part of the Summer School of deSingel International Arts Campus in Antwerp.
