This workshop explores the intricate details of the Hofesh Shechter movement style and researches improvisation for performance techniques. The workshop will include two tracks & a dance film project.
THE TECHNIQUE TRACK // highlights a unique technique class lead by Ayelet Nadav, phrases in the Hofesh movement style and Repertory from the Hofesh Shechter Dance Company.
THE CREATIVE TRACK // continues with group exercises lead by Shane Scopatz in improvisation for performance technique based on his professional career with The Batsheva Ensemble and Inbal Dance Theater among others. The dancers will work on developing skills of awareness, creative stamina and real time composition abilities. Contemporary Dancers today rarely have time carved out to develop such skills outside of a choreographic process. This workshop will serve as a laboratory. A place to experiment.
OUR WILD DANCE FILM PROJECT // Theorist Fest has commissioned a dance film project investigating migration patterns of southwestern wildlife, especially desert animals that cross freely along the border. Applicants of all genders, abilities and ages over 17+ are encouraged to join in the evenings Friday & Sunday-Tuesday.
