Session 1: Implode (10-12): Expanding possibilities, encountering risk, chance, and choice… play with extremes of consciousness, increasing self awareness in movement, following impulses and surprising oneself in personal movement vocabularies while developing cohesive solo material
Session 2: Explode (12-2): Ensemble Making, Composing in a Group …expand awareness to the whole group and awaken a responsive body that can integrate personal movement impulses with a larger group awareness, alternating between perceiving and generating composition, establishing a group sensitivity.
Session 3: Blow it Up (10-12): Get performance-ready, refining approaches to composition …participants further refine their new ensemble dynamic and begin to recognize and create coherent pieces.
2PM PERFORMANCE: Invite Your Friends! …workshop participants put their new to the test in front of an audience!
