| resonance | is based on practices that enable heightened states of sensory perception.
The workshop shares methods for reverberating mindfully with other dancers during duet and ensemble improvisation. We will focus on listening, sensing, and acting from sound, movement, and memory impulses. We will explore expansions and contractions of energy andsound in our bodies and in the space. We will trace the pathways that movement material takes between outside and inside: input - filtering - output - sending. Rather than reacting to other bodies,
sounds or images, we will cultivate a stance that allows us to observe, consider, and respond with as much of our selves as possible.
The group will explore questions like: How do we transmit messages that perpetuate in different forms through the space instead of dying out? How do we translate or morph messages into
different media like sound, writing, drawing, or assessing? How can we use vibration, reflection, sounding, panning, resounding, writing, and remembering to create a resonating body?
| resonance | will culminate in a structured improvisation performance by Bilwa, Daniela and workshop participants with special guest musicians Audrey Chen,Luca Marini and Andrea Serafim.
All workshop participants are invited to perform, however,
it is not a requirement for workshop participation.
