Choreographing for Performance and Building a Thinking Body
Have you gotten very good at taking class, collected a lot of vocabulary, technique and skill, and are looking for a way to bridge the divide between class and performing?
In this workshop we will work together to build sequences using our experience to transfer skills from class to stage. Working with ideas of hanging, balancing, and falling, we will make connections between form and function. We will work to stay open and alert, observing habits and tensions to make room to grow as a mover and thinker.
This intensive choreography series will be taught in 2 sections, Rope and Hoop. There will be 8 classes and 2 practice labs included in the series. In the lab practices the 2 sections will practice together. An informal showing of the full group piece will be held on June 19th. All classes and labs are 1.5 hours as follows:
