Join master teacher Kim Epifano for an improvisational exploration which incorporates physicality-sourcing distillation, imagery, essence, guts, partnering, vocalization and theater. Finding the essence of working in a live score with others or in a solo. Revealing worlds you did not know you had. Tune yourself to the integrity of group action. Always a juicy warm up with breath, sound and the giving and taking of weight! Bring Knee pads if you have them and a notebook. Interdisciplinary artists welcome!
