July 17-18: Presence and Embodiment – A Weekend Intensive

July 17, 10-5 and July 18 11-4
PHCA’s Professional Development Program presents
Presence and Embodiment: A Weekend Intensive with Control Group, Kim Olson/sweet edge, and Syzygy Butoh

This workshop addresses Presence as the foundation for physical performance, developing techniques and approaches for more full, diverse, and compelling embodiment of dance vocabulary, movement improvisation, and the choreographic process. Equal parts technique, theory, and application, this workshop stimulates new perspectives to familiar movement and leads our bodies into fully unique and unexpected vocabularies and aesthetics.
Each day will begin with a dance technique class that leads into topical explorations in repertory, improvisation, and choreography. Vegan, gluten-free lunch is included on Saturday.

Schedule: Saturday 7/17, 10am-5pm
10am-1pm Creating from the Blank State: Aesthetics Choreography Lab (I) with Kim Olson (sweet edge dance)
