Fresh Friday with Sophie Ormiston
23rd November 2023
This week we welcome back Rambert School alumna, Sophie Ormiston, to take our second and third years for Fresh Friday.
After graduating from Rambert School, Sophie moved to Germany to join Tanz Kassel for two years. Here she collaborated with numerous choreographers to create new productions and perform them throughout the seasons. These choreographers included Roni Chadash, Candela Capitan, Andonis Foniadakis and Sita Ostheimer. It was in Kassel where Sophie had the opportunity to choreograph and stage their own work entitled ‘An Ode To Our Contradictions’. Sophie moved back to London in July and was involved in the creation and performance of BalletBoyz’s ‘England on Fire’.
Sophie shared, “My Fresh Friday will start with a gentle guided improvisation focussing on finding fluidity, softness and availability. We will explore some theatrical tasks based on some of the themes of the work I have created which will lead us into learning a section of my solo creation. I want to create an environment where the dancers feel they can authentically express themselves whilst remembering to never take life and this profession too seriously.“
