Solo Training • Changing States
Composition • Performance
Improvisation Scores • The Underscore
The January 2015 OPEN training is a residential workshop specifically designed to develop our practice of contact improvisation and other related improvised dance work. The workshop will include physical training, improvisation and composition scores, listening practice, jamming, watching, discussion, feedback, labs, contemplative practice, and performance studies.
In solo, duet, trio, and group work; in and out of contact; in silence and with live music; we will move toward greater clarity and depth in our dancing and watching.
Please come prepared physically and psychologically for intensive practice (and a bit of fun!).
Monday–Friday, 10 am to 5:30/6 pm
There will be some early morning, evening, and weekend activities.
Workshop involvement is full-time–with the exception of some weekend time–so please don’t expect to schedule other things during the workshop.
All participants must attend the workshop for the full 3 weeks and live at Earthdance (no commuting). This means you must arrive and depart within the established times (below); there are no exceptions.
By October 15, we have more applications than places, so please apply early!
