The Potent Body: performing and creating with intention, economy and depth.
This three-day workshop with Sasha Ivanochko takes an in introductory look at interpretive and performance tools for a wide ranging contemporary dance practice and artistic visioning.
Each day begins with a brief physical preparation, warming up and opening the energetic channels of the body. Introducing increasingly complex directives, participants gather information pertaining to movement patterning and embodiment. Moving on to ways of doing, ways of seeing, Ivanochko leads participants through movement building exercises and tasks where participants begin looking at intention and specificity in the context of phrases they build. These phrases form the basis for a daily open forum among participants, discussing the function of movement, impulse, body mechanics, movement as metaphor, symbolism, abstraction, and musicality.
Participants will be asked to share one or two personal goals or questions related to performing and/or choreographic development. Whether you are an interpreter, improviser, or are interested in developing your own choreographic practice, realizing the communicative potential of your body in movement will empower your practice and frame your artistic goals.
