Baby, this is what you came for
I’m walking on my future
“… politics is activity already in motion. It does not await ignition.” – Randy Martin
This workshop is a moving think tank. Choreography can be a framework for deploying difference in a time of increasing anxiety. What do I mean by difference? Who is in the room. What does it mean for us to be together? We are not the same but we are bound by invisible tethers and the strangeness of behaving together. I am interested in the strangeness and try to tease it out in ways both systematic and spontaneous. We make by doing. We perform as we make a performance, or participate in a workshop. I will share ways that I harness immediacy, mystery, relevance, irreverence and import. I am interested in what is definitive and unstable. Are we foolish for still being inspired by performance? I like dancing. I like it a lot. We become beautiful in the process of performing but beautiful is not enough. I want to hold all of us. I want the differences held. Do you care to join? It is all too much.

Pliable, relaxed and expansive voices
Miguel Gutierrez’ recent works have been notable for their expressive use of the voice. In this workshop, Gutierrez will lead the participants through simple warm-ups to help them to discover pliable, relaxed and expansive voices, ready for an array of approaches to sound making in performance. We will sing together, create songs in groups, and play with different approaches to text. Influences include studies with Barbara Maier, Linklater Technique, Alexander Technique, and the Feldenkrais Method. This workshop is open to anyone!
