Performances

UPCOMING

Free workshop & performance opportunity –

Enrollment is now open for the free school at Beaubourg, a new venue at 614 Gravier. I’ll be directing a four-week Known Mass workshop there in March 2020, where we’ll put together an ensemble movement-based performance piece. So if you’ve ever seen any of my dance work and thought, “Wow, I bet I could do that” – I agree! Please join me!

  • Cost to attend the workshop is zero dollars.
  • Both trained dancers/physical performers and “pedestrians” with no specialized movement practice are welcome.
  • I will lead us through a devising process that includes scored improvisation (a rehearsed, open structure) and set material. (You don’t need to know what any of that means yet.)
  • At the end of our fourth meeting, we will offer a public performance at Beaubourg.
  • Workshop meetings are Sundays, March 1 – March 22, tentative time 4pm-7pm; performance is March 22, time TBD.
  • To participate in this workshop you must commit to all four meetings. Spots are limited; email knownmass@gmail.com to sign up.
