February 18, 2012 - 3:00pm - 6:00pm

When history collides with the personal, what you're left with can be described as a dance. In this improvisation workshop, participants will replay and re-explore the "opening into dance" afforded by exhilarating, devastating, or life-altering moments in collective and personal memory. As a group we will support the sharing and naming of these openings in an ultra-safe environment, and create a score that contains them. This score will become part of THE MAKING OF, an EMERGE project directed by Sarah Ledbetter that explores the improvisation of history and...

Contemplation as/is Improvisation

with Miriam Wolodarski

February 19, 2012 - 10:00am - 1:00pm

Aiming to work in a mode where space tells us what to do: not looking for good ideas, but resting in a natural state of grace. Practicing non-territoriality, acknowledging our own foolishness, supporting and perfecting what is already happening.
