Carlie Angel in residence
March 6 – 9 2018

Carlie talks about the residency and her work with collaborator Stephen Hoffna and performer Hew Parham.

The residency allowed us to explore the “seed” of an idea. To explore what works, what doesn’t. It allowed collaboration that fed the initial idea to bloom into a more structured process and helped us work out what direction we want to follow with this project. This is a new group of artists collaborating and so new creative tasks were generated between us that, in turn, generated new phrase material/creative content.   We have a number of base “phrases” now and a first draft map of the trajectory of the work.

Carlie Angel in residence May 6 – 17 2019

Carlie used her 2019 residency time in preparation for performances in London with the London Symphony Orchestra

What Do You Do With an Idea
Based on the New York Times Best Selling book “What Do You Do With An Idea” by Kobi Yamada this is a family concert performed at the Barbican Theatre in London with the LSO. Music is Composed by Paul Rissmann and the show will be directed by Victor Craven. 
It is quite unusual for an orchestra to commission dance in this way and Carlie is so excited to be invited to choreograph and perform this work. 
The work was initially created and performed with the ASO in 2019 but will have a new life for LSO under the directorship of Victor Craven.
