This workshop touches on the basic modalities of improvisation—exploring space, time, solos and pairings, moving from impulse vs. moving from memory or imagination. We will approach these techniques with new eyes and break down step by step the ways we create and shape the space. This workshop is catered towards dancers new to improvisation or seasoned improvisers, who would like to check in and learn a different style of improvisation. We will move very fast through scores and spend Sunday on solo improvisation exploring presence and performance qualities.
