ARTiculting Presence: THE GEOMETRY OF ATTENTION
Creative acts of the embodied mind are the means by which dancers non-verbally interrogate borders, enter other bodies, and define the dimensions of internal and external space, articulating presence. Working with the mind of the dance and the dance of the mind, this highly physical workshop will take us to the edge of our boundary definitions as it engages and trains attentional skills, informs creative knowing and encourages bold acts of physical and mental extension. A training in ensemble dance improvisation and Contact Improvisation, this workshop is structured to educate both technical action as well as creative skills as we will build toward an improvisational performance at weeks end. Each day will be spent in theoretical discussion and physical/mental training as well as composition and practice. Join us and investigate resonant webs of awareness that direct and modulate attention as the bases for compositional structures.
