What is your first impulse? Can you trust it? What happens when the judge falls asleep? Can sight be a handicap? Can you know too much? This is a workshop about Composition. In this workshop we will use several improvisation strategies to open a free flow of immediate, spontaneous and automatic writing, speaking and dancing.

The materials explored in this workshop will culminate with a public manifestation at The Museum of Modern Art, in conjunction with Judson Dance Theater: The Work Is Never Done. Participation in the workshop does not require you to participate in the manifestation at MoMA. Click here for more information regarding the exhibition at MoMA.
