Saturday, August 29: 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM

Austin McCormick's Company XIV is coming to Peridance Center to teach a unique workshop for women only.

Austin McCormick continues his exploration of the female archetypes present in the poetry of Charles Bukowski in this experimental dance/theatre workshop.

Open to Advanced and Professional female dancer/actors. Students will begin with a rigorous warm up taught by Laura Careless consisting of yoga and borrowing from acting techniques (Lucid Body, Stanislavski etc.) Teaching of Company XIV repertory as well as development of new choreography will follow with emphasis on personal interpretation and in depth coaching.

Subject matter is not for the light of heart and will deal with femininity, objectification, sexuality, and relationships. Performers will be asked to work on characters outside of their usual “type”. Material developed in the workshop may be included in McCormick’s BETTING ON THE MUSE an ongoing performance project in New York. Please bring character shoes/heels and journal.
