Ages 16 and up. Please see below for registration details!DescriptionThese are workshops where the participants are developing techniques to create their own movement repertoire on their own bodies, on each other and delving deeper to develop better communication skills as interpreter and choreographer. By shifting these roles frequently we develop tools to communicate our ideas and develop our choreographic visions. We will consider this artistry as live sculpture and refine our visions as choreographers, simultaneously as collaborator/interpreter. This becomes a live practice; it can be personal and we can go very deep, finding ways to develop a specific languages with each other.  We work on developing our own artistic language to describe images, energy, feelings etc to benefit the development and life of a piece and our practice. How can this language develop what you see and what you want to see? Moving on, we learn to receive, listen and witness the body we are working with and open ourselves to the images, energy feelings that they are projecting outwards. This exercise can change our initial ideas or intentions and this is what is beautiful about working with live matter and human being in dance and performance.
