Technique & Repertory Intensive

Start date: June 19, 2017

End date: June 23, 2017

Time: 10am-2pm

Location: Gibney Dance Chambers St.

This is a twenty-hour concentrated study of Maria Bauman’s dying and dying and dying (NY premier at Gibney in September) for advanced contemporary dancers over five days. Maria will begin with a two-hour technique class each day, focusing on the physical capacities she uses in performance such as the mechanics of floor-work and using the hands like feet, vocal production while dancing, and articulate spinal expression. Then, in the afternoon she is leading participants in repertory-based generative time that includes structured improvisation and guided choreography assignments using the prompts she gave herself for dying and dying and dying. On the last day, we will host an invited showing for the participants at Gibney Dance Center.
