Us Making Dances, Dances Making Us
Working with an emergent approach to making we will find ways to begin and follow what interests us from there. We will attend to refining our perception to what is present, including our considerable imaginations. Gathering our attention to the physical, behavioral and perceptual experiences emerging from our making we will discover how and where to go next and move towards the creation of ‘worlds’ that, on their own terms, are specific to individual modes of physicality and unique ways of thinking and sensing. For this workshop we will work on solos.
