All Levels Welcome
How do we interpret research and stage the unknown? How do you create a personal connection to another time, culture,
ethnic group and present a dance authentic both to them and you? We’ll develop the tools and methodology while exploring the challenges of historical dance recreation, creating folkloric tableaux and characters for the stage, through approaching dance as theater and living history in order to bring our visions to life.
Workshop is "by donation" with all proceeds going to NGO Animals Matter To Me, for their efforts to support Covid-19 impacted animals. More Info Here.
