We will have Performance Lab. with interactive installation MICRO for 3 days to explore and integrate improvisational score into performative state.
The Lab. is for experienced improvisational/Contact Improv. dance performers, limited number of 6-10. All performers who participate Lab. are invited to perform at the event, MICRO in Kingston on Aug.13th and 14th.
The Lab. will emerge from:
● Exploring how the sense of touch affects our bodies and minds.
● Using kinesthetic awareness as a conversation to explore the connection between bodies and interactive installation MICRO.
● Engaging sensorially with Installation MICRO as a way of creating choreographic structure and exchanging ideas.
● Integrating improvisational score into performative state as an individual and as a group.
Lab.: Aug. 5th(Fri) 12pm to Aug. 7th(Sun) 3pm @ The barn at Saint Josen, Accord, NY
Performance: Aug. 13th, 14th/8pm @Kingston Historic water front
