Classes are $14 each. Discount available with class card purchase.


We focus on the creative process in making body/movement based performance. Through unequal parts making, discussing, improvising and watching the work of other workshop participants, we uncover and deepen your individual interests, your process and your work. Inherited notions of dance and performance are critiqued, absorbed or discarded in the service of creating performance that comes from a vital, necessary place and that speaks to a contemporary context. I am interested in harnessing the various fictions that we already construct unconsciously and using those as a frame for examining other possible frames for performance. There is no one way to make work.

Please note: this workshop takes place at Abrons Arts Center Studio G05.
