Moving the Environment: Questions into Form with Daniel Lepkoff 2017

December 7, 2017 - 5:00pm - December 10, 2017 - 3:00pm

 

The work considers the body's interactions with its environment as material for dance. Inside of a moment lies an opportunity to move our attention and frame questions before an answer appears. Specific exercises look at details inside of ordinary movement and propose strategies to inspire our imagination and create mystery, music, and geometry.

(Cancelled) Post/Contact: dancing to re-imagine the crises of difference and politics with Keith Hennessy

A dance laboratory for experiments in touch, sensing, struggle, collaboration, support, resistance, and relationship. We will work with failure more than flow, with struggle more than ease. The goal of the workshop is to extend the proposals and possibilities of Contact Improvisation.

Transnational Dance Immersion 2017 with Donna Mejia

All proceeds support Earthdance’s Diversity & Inclusion Scholarship

October 12, 2017 - 5:00pm - October 15, 2017 - 3:00pm

After 30 years of study, Donna Mejia has galvanized a teaching practice that defies categorization, highlighting dances of the North African/Arab rural communities, Yoga, Ballet, American hip hop, and Brazilian Silvestre Contemporary technique. Inventive fusion, hardcore rhythms, precision hip work, and attentive bodywork feed the mix. Each morning features three hours of bodywork (stretching, alignment, yoga, & somatic science). Each afternoon, we dance!
