In recent years, we’ve seen a re-opening and a redefining of the value of dance happening in multiple spaces, dimensions. With appreciation growing for multiple ways to engage in dance, choreographers and movement makers of all kinds are reconsidering how and why they make work, and for whom and where the work is seen. In two mini-institutes, Peter DiMuro along with invited guests, will explore strategies for creating work through the engagement of a site, its history and a dance-maker’s unique perspective. We’ll also use writing, interviews, research as tools to expand our notion of how to illuminate a space and all that it holds, not merely place movement next to nature or architecture.
Choreographing Unique Spaces: Small & Intimate
This mini-series will focus on the individual maker/performer and a site and scale that suggest close up intimacy. Alternating between tools/strategy sessions and working sessions, participants should be self-motivated and both physically and intellectually committed.
August 9 5-8pm August 10 12-5pm Register by 7/20/2019: $110 General Public/$95 BDA/Student/Senior *Registration will increase on 7/21
Choreographing Unique Spaces: Large & Grand
This mini-series will investigate multiple bodies in scale to larger sites, and potentially sites strung together to create a performance or installation. Participants will have tools/strategies sessions aside from guest community participants, and should be excited and curious about the range of potential from single performer to many. Community participants will include beginners and new movers as well as more advanced, so those taking the institute should be open to working with multiple levels and intents around dance.
August 13 6-9:30pm August 15 6-9:30pm August 16 5-8pm Register by 7/20/2019: $135 General Public/$110 BDA/Student/Senior *Registration will increase on 7/21
Community members participating in the Large & Grand workshop series may have the opportunity to join Institute Choreographers and PDM dancers in a site-specific commission to be announced soon! For questions or to express interest, please contact Kristin Wagner, Administrative Assistant, at email@example.com.
Dance-makers looking to expand their skills sets and collaborative movers seeking to become more effective in co-creation are more than welcome. There will be an informal showing within each respective workshop series, so participants should plan on taking all sessions within Small/Intimate or Large/Grande.
