Dance Improvisation & Performance Intensive with Chris Aiken and Angie Hauser

August 9, 2015 - 5:00pm to August 15, 2015 - 3:00pm

Programming category: 

A 6-day residential workshop focused on dance improvisation, performance, and other related work. Our time will be spent tuning and stretching our physical and perceptual capacities. Dancing, watching, talking, performing, and composing will be a part of our daily practice and research.

The material of this intensive is informed by Chris and Angie’s experience with a wide range of forms. There are recognizable influences from contemporary dance training, contact improvisation, fascia research, Alexander Technique, ecological psychology, and visual and architectural design.

This workshop will culminate in a public performance in Northampton on August 14th. Please come ready to immerse yourself in intensive research and practice.

“Participating in the workshop at Earthdance with Chris and Angie was just what I needed to reinvest in my improvisational practice. I felt supported, challenged, and excited to return home with new information, new friends and collaborators, and a reminder as to why I need to keep improvising. And doing this at Earthdance made it even more potent: the diverse community that came together in this work, and guided so generously by Chris and Angie, really invited my learning to continue beyond the studio.”

- Matthew Cumbie (Dancer/Choreographer with DanceExchange (Washington,DC) and DIPI 2014 participant)
