SAM Kids: Deep Soulful Sweats

22 April

SAM Kids: Deep Soulful Sweats
An exercise in movement with Melbourne dance duo Deep Soulful Sweats
Friday 22 April at 11:30am
Level 2, Shepparton Art Museum

Join Deep Soulful Sweats on an elemental expedition through art and the zodiac. Open to kids and families, together we will create an absurd theatre, a parade, a moving work of art incorporating creative dance, theatre, body movement and inventive play framed by the outdoor spaces at SAM and a colourful assortment of props and costumes.

Deep Soulful Sweats is about coming together and getting silly and activating imagination through movement, chanting and fantasy, it provides a platform for kids to have a good dance and lose themselves, indulge in play. DSS encourages participants to let go of inhibitions and commit whole-heartedly to the experience. Audiences leave feeling elated, physically and cognitively stimulated with a profound sense of togetherness.

“It's an amalgamation of anything and everything that's sure to make you feel positively aligned. And a little bit sweaty.” The Music. Kathleen Langham, May 2014

“Completely weird and wonderful” Rotunda Media. Perth. Freya Parr

About Deep Soulful Sweats:

Rebecca Jensen and Sarah Aiken/Deep Soulful Sweats have a long history of creating experimental choreography and performance in theatres, galleries, community, film, music & site responsive contexts. Their work has been described as formally reckless, slipping between codified forms and unbridled invention. Their freeform maximalist style has no rules, amassing multiple images in a torrent of references, satirical, sincere, absurd and unapologetic.

Since 2010 they have produced world-class, experimental choreography presented in Canada, Italy, France, New Zealand and more locally at Arts Centre Melbourne, Dance Massive, Arts House, MPavilion, Keir Choreographic Awards, Melbourne Knowledge Week, Next Wave, Dark MOFO, Brisbane Festival and Castlemaine State Festival.
Deep Soulful Sweats has been presented extensively around the country since its inception in 2013, and has grown a loyal following for its shape-shifting events, encouraging people from all walks of life to step out of their thinking mind and into their bodies.
