For Whom: Geared towards more advanced movers
By Whom: JoAnna Mendl Shaw (NYC) & Audrey Rachelle (Seattle, WA (audreyrachelle123) with LIVE Musician Stewart Singer (Albuquerque, NM)
About: Audrey began co-exploring with Shaw six years ago, in weekly Equus Projects research sessions. Moving from an interspecies perspective the Equus Projects company devised countless improvisations scores, choreographic strategies and a somatic practice informed by working with equines. The workshops, aptly named Dance Differently, became an ideal way for dancers to audition for the Equus company. Workshops focused on heightened the Physical Listening skills and real-time decision-making, internal rule structures and developing dynamic choreographic trajectories. Each class yielded small choreographic gems.
