The ChoreoLab is a program sponsored by The Junction Dance Festival. During nine weeks in the summer starting June 1st, up to five choreographers are able to use a professional studio space to create, rehearse and produce their work. A "work in progress" will be shown on Thursday July 1st at 7pm, and a closing performance on Friday July 30th at 7pm.
Alice Sheppard's work as a choreographer, thinker and leader within the field of Disability Arts opens up new understandings of the moving world — a world in which access is both equitable and artistically aesthetic. For this virtual workshop, the Hop has connected Alice Sheppard with Eugene Korsunskiy, a specialist in design thinking and hands-on learning. The two will interweave movement exercises, embodied experiments and reflection, bringing knowledge and questions from their related fields into conversation.
Using compositional strategies from a range of sources participants will develop a movement - based solo as a starting point for an imagined future collaboration. Class will begin with a somatic based improvisational movement warm-up to tune our body-minds.
Join Neva Cockrell for a weekend of embodiment and creativity! Each day will include somatic meditation, movement, creative practice, and a chance to share your work.
This is a great opportunity for dancers to take time to care for their bodies AND have a supportive container to create work.
