Purring Tiger conducts lectures and performance workshops exploring the artistic combination of the human body with technology, using interactive installations and body movement.
MENU OF WORKSHOPS/LECTURES
1. Performance with Interactive Installation
This workshop focuses on improvisational movement within a technology based interactive installation. The workshop will begin with exercises to engage our bodies, minds, and entire sensorium with the present moment. Next we’ll extend this sensorial awareness to the technology, as a way of creating choreographic structure. Finally, we’ll integrate an improvisational score with the interactive installation, both as individuals and as a group.
2. Contact Improvisation
This workshop will explore how the sense of physical contact affects our bodies and minds. As we observe our conscious and unconscious movement choices, we’ll use kinesthetic awareness as a conversation to explore connection between ourselves and others. This will include physical partnering with sharing weight, playing with gravity, and exchanging ideas.
