In this high energy workshop Bill Shannon will teach rhythm, holding patterns and body positions invented over his life of dance and play on crutches. Workshop participants will be mentally and physically challenged to improvise ways of recreating Bill’s dance on crutches in real time without their own use of crutches. This workshop offers able-bodied dancers an opportunity to experience the challenges of a physical translation process of an existing dance technique that is not based in the assumption or patterns of an able body. Participants will work in the way that disabled dancers have historically worked, by inventing a translation of the form that adopts the aesthetic from the standpoint of an alternate physicality than the one the form is based in.

For experienced dancers and physical performers.
