4 sessions: Mondays, 4-7pm PST,
Oct 19, Oct 26, Nov 2, Nov 9
This in-depth multi-session workshop – co-led by Joe Goode and Patricia West – focuses on developing your tools for devising choreography. Since teaching ‘steps’ isn’t how most people choreograph anymore, let’s look at some ways to foster meaningful and generative collaborations with your performers, to develop movement material together. What prompts (images, writings, sounds) can you use to inspire them to move in ways they never could have imagined? How can we make the choreographic process enjoyable and exploratory?
Learn from Joe Goode Performance Group’s methods for generating movement that is rooted in authenticity, creating a window into your and performers’ complex, fragile, and resilient humanities. You will be guided through various prompts – using movement, writing, imagery, and sound – to adjust, collide, and reflect on your self-generated choreographic material. To disrupt linear meaning-making and build an intuitive practice. You’ll also work on making and sharing your own prompts in break-out room sessions and smaller groups.
This multi-session workshop is built for dance-makers, devised theater artists, and dance educators. Sessions are cumulative, so we ask that participants are available for all four weeks. All 4 sessions will be held via Zoom** Mondays from 4-7pm, Oct 19-Nov 9.
