Motivating Dynamics
What is true motivation for movement? When does dance feel real? What qualities contribute to the dynamic momentum of a dance phrase? Contrasts between extreme spatial extension and central impacts, risky and playful handling of body weight and creating or overcoming resistance will be explored. Each class will consist of a warm up based on Laban analysis, and then I will offer ideas for creating and executing movement in an open research situation.

The Red Square: a Place marked out for Divination
To strengthen our composing muscles, our intuition, our finding of patterns, stories ~ the way home. Using large Red twine to enclose a space, letting the power generate and invoke patterns, designs, stimulating our image-in-ation/visualization. Not dancing only inside but also composing: with self/others/allies (objects)/text and sound and, possibly, dark and light.
