The Workshop Series at Peridance will include a blend of Modern Dance technique, company repertory, improvisation, and collaborative dance making. Exercises and repertory phrase work will focus on executing movement with physical clarity, intentional initiation, dynamic flow of energy through the body, compelling dynamics, and surprising rhythmic structures. During the workshop, dancers will explore working with props and creating movement guided by emotional expression. Dancers can attend any combination of days or all of the 5-day series. By attending multiple days, dancers will have the opportunity to deepen their own personal risk taking and expand their performance and creative skills.
Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre creates dynamic dance theatre that activates emotional expression in a rich and abstract collage. Through an interplay between athletic and articulate motion, we present theatrical and immediate works that engage audiences from start to finish and beckon a response of thought, feeling, and soul.
