James Finnemore

former dancer with Hofesh Shechter Company | former dancer and rehearsal director with Punchdrunk


move fast feel slow

We will begin with guided improvisation; usually starting on the floor and working our way to standing. the focus will be on inhabiting a full, available body whilst maintaining a sense of economy and sustainability. Together we will then begin to build simple phrases that aim to help you apply the ideas discovered through the guided improvisation to set movement material. as the workshop progresses, we will try and hold on to that idea of economy, whilst we move away from simplicity and construct more material that searches for increasing levels of texture, mobility, complexity, dexterity and rhythm.

some workshops offer group improvisation or partnering. these workshops elements may or may not be possible and the teachers and choreographers will modify their workshops accordingly in line with the health and safety measures required at the time. please stay flexible. thank you!

As a dancer, James has extensive touring and performance experience through working with Hofesh Shechter Company, Carte Blanche, Olivier Dubois, Gary Clarke Company and, most recently, as a performing Rehearsal Director with Punchdrunk. Alongside this, James has taught at various institutions and dance companies, delivering workshops and re-staging Hofesh Shechter’s repertoire. As a choreographer James has worked on a number of different projects, most notably developing and presenting his own full length work, TERRA, through his associateship at The Point, and as part of The Place’s Hot house project.
