Dance Speak – a workshop in emergent language in dance improvisation with Zornitsa Stoyanova
August 1 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Join in to learn new compositional and improvisation tools to bring forth the possibility of language in dance improvisation.
The great Simone Forti pioneered talking and dancing and many of us have continued with similar practices.
Zornitsa Stoyanova believes that spontaneous language in improvisation it is one more possibility for expression and composition.
It is a possibility to bring forth meaning, to let the moment emerge in clarity.
She believes that as performers, who are involved with researching the here and now, it is our duty to have all of our humanity and possibility on stage.
To truly embrace the first rule of “come as you are” in improvisation, we need to exercise and prepare ourselves for the possibility of language.
Join her in this two hour workshop that will offer techniques for using language, decomposing it and re-composing it in new and surprising ways… always with the focus on embodiment and movement….always with the focus of the body and the brain working together.
Just $15 for a full year!
