Collective Body/DANCELAB Workshop

Peridance faculty member, Brian Carey Chung teaches a week-long workshop based on the choreography and composition techniques of his company, Collective Body/DANCELAB.

Apr 26, 2010 - Apr 30, 2010; Mon - Fri
Monday/Wednesday/Friday: 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Tuesday/Thursday: 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

The Collective's approach is that of continued investigation of personal and relational experience. You will be asked to move like only you can move, and to do so with your best self within given and created templates. Translational processes developed by choreographer and artistic director of the Collective, Brian Carey Chung, will be explored in conjunction with your own storytelling and experimentation. You will participate in these processes alongside Collective members, and be given the opportunity to personalize shape, symbol, image, and form inherent in the template(s) to create a compelling story of your dancing. The outcome allows for collective movement resonances, accessing the elements of chance, individuality, and spontaneity.
