  • My SYD placement with Hofesh Shechter! Phoebe Hart


    Today was my first day of my SYD placement working with the Hofesh Shechter team. It was great to meet the whole team who are responsible for all the hard work in the Hofesh offices at the Leathermarket near London Bridge.

    I met the lovely Lucy and Helen who are key members of the Hofesh team and responsible for the upcoming Intensives that I will be helping with. Everyone made me feel really welcome and at home in the office and it was a fun 2 hours with printing failures and near chocolate cake death incidents! It was really enlightening working in the office and listening to the conversations going on around me about data protection, booking tours abroad and which dancers are where and when!

    After getting a short brief from Lucy on what the intensive will consist of and my responsibilities within it, I started on some registers and evaluation forms. I began to get an insight into the mass amounts of planning there is put into just two short intensives. Timetables and briefs for the dancers, schedules for the coordinators and I even went to work on a small schedule for myself for the 3 days!

    The intensive is based on the all female work 'The Art of Not Looking Back' and will give the participants an insight into the process the dancers went through when creating the piece. As the intensive is going to be at Laban I have a big role in showing people around and helping with anything the dancers or participants may need. As Lucy will be on Easter break, the intensives will be left to me and Helen to run, and after Day 1, I may even be left on my own to register participants and set up each day! Ahh!

    I'm really excited to be involved in such a great oppurtunity and I can’t wait to get started!
