Collaborative songwriting workshop- Learn how to unleash your inner fountain of songs by writing with others. In each session participants will co-write and record songs with each other under the guidance of Liv. We’ll discuss process and the trials and triumphs of being a writer of songs and you’ll walk away from the workshop with three brand new tunes in your pocket. FUN!
Olivia Hally (Liv) is an Australian-born musician, currently residing in NYC. She has a degree in Classical Guitar performance and has spent her adult life as writer and performer of internationally-touring pop project, Oh Pep!. Her work has been featured in the New York Times, on NPR’s Tiny Desk and in Rolling Stone and has seen her tour and collaborate with the likes of the Mountain Goats, Billy Bragg, Valerie June, Ron Sexsmith and Martha Wainwright. In 2017, Liv began a community driven project called FUN with Oh Pep!, facilitating collaborative songwriting opportunities for like-minded people. More recently, she began performing under the moniker Fully Human, a project that shares the stories of the audience through song. She is currently a writer for Sony ATV, speaking at universities, working on music for a play, reading a lot about addiction to technology, and falling in love.
WHO Are "Oh-Pep"?
Liv + Pep are co-collaborators and founders of pop group Oh Pep!. They met at the Victorian College of the Arts Secondary School as classical musicians when Liv moved from Phillip Island to the city as a 16yo kid. Since then they have studied at the University of Melbourne (Liv as a classical guitarist, Pep as a jazz violinist) and taken on the world as a pop duo. They have also spent time learning Appalachian Mountain Music from the greats in Tennessee, North Carolina and West Virginia and perform this music as Fat Cousin Skinny. They've joined a pop punk group with Angie McMahon called Good Option and performed their original music all over the world as Oh Pep!. They’ve been on tour with the Mountain Goats, Billy Bragg, Valerie June, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Nightsweats, Lord Huron, Martha Wainwright, Lake Street Dive + some. They've written with Ron Sexsmith, Valerie June, Joel Quartermain (Eskimo Joe) + some more. Liv is currently writing music for a play in NYC and Pepi sessions for various groups. They’ve got a supportive team around them of booking agents, record labels, management and a worldwide publishing deal with Sony ATV. In 2016 they released their debut album, Stadium Cake, and highly regarded taste-makers like NPR, The New York Time and Rolling Stone, all said nice things about them. They have facilitated songwriting and music business workshops with Woodford Folk Festival, the National Folk Festival and state government initiative, FReeZA. Liv is currently secretary of Folk Alliance Australia and focuses her time on their national youth development program. They each teach individually and like learning new things themselves.

Explore Cameron McKinney’s NAGARE technique – which activates oppositional forces and contrasting sensations to achieve fluid transitions – in this two-hour workshop that combines the grace of modern dance with the speed and fluidity of streetdance, capoeira, and house dance. Focus on how to move smoothly from high to low to high again through dance phrases that involve every part of the body while rediscovering “the down” through floorwork from contemporary dance forms. By shifting the focus from an internal dialogue to creating movement that tells a story, the class will delve deeper into the cathartic potential of sweat and exhaustion, while offering a new and active method of expression. This workshop introduces a unique approach to contemporary floorwork, while also exploring the rawness of underground streetdance.
Open to dancers of all levels, 16 years old and up
