A workshop designed for people who are already steeped in thoughtful and skillful performance and choreography practices.
Using a mixture of prompt-heavy improvisational landscapes, repertoire phrase material, discussions, frontal dance-class sequences, and some individual/group excavations, we will explore both our shared and our personal dance histories. Come ready to dance fully, talk openly, listen deeply, and look carefully. Designed for people who are already steeped in thoughtful and skillful performance and choreography practices.
