This movement & performance lab first explores and deepens each dancer’s individual artistic voice by inquiring into their unique inclinations and idiosyncratic capabilities. We will create strategies for embracing the unknown, steering mindfully away from fear of failure, and courageously opening to new ways of moving and being witnessed in the act of performance. We then embark upon ensemble improvisation in performance with attention to the tasks of listening, leading, and instant choice-making. Dancers will work specifically with writing exercises, utilizing texts and narratives, and experimenting with Countertechnique® tools in performance. We’ll play, get messy, and step wholeheartedly into our authenticity.
