Through a series of improvisations and choreographic sketches, we will explore making dances as the process of creating a series of physical relations. The experiments will include the cultivation of bodily states through the use of imagery, partner work, and structuring physical problems, which in turn affect our bodily state. Limitation will be examined as an integral part of composition. Through this, we will seek to develop work, which exhibits a personal and evocative language, contemporary cultural and social relevance, intelligence (in its various forms), and guts.
