A two-day workshop with Jennifer Monson

We will start with performing instantaneous 2 minute dances for each other. Responding with various approaches to language – descriptive, poetic, non–verbal, structural, etc., we will hone our intentions as they evolve in the act of performance. Over the two days we will expand the time frame and generate material that can be used towards future research, performance and pleasure. What is performed both for witness and dancer? Is it an act, a task, a relation, a perception? How do we communicate, obfuscate, shape, clarify, and stir up mystery? We will animate different spaces of performance and dance through our research together.

Location: This location will be held at Movement Research, 122 Community Center. Click here for more information on this location.
