In January 2020, the Hopkins Center for the Arts is thrilled to present the Martha Graham Dance Company’s “Appalachian Spring” and its EVE Project, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment and investigating the relationship between gender and power.
In the spirit of the EVE project, the Hopkins Center for the Arts and the Vermont Dance Alliance are partnering to host this special Meet and Move event on Saturday, January 18th that will bring dancers together to celebrate women in our region who are strengthening and innovating the field of dance.
This two-part event will take place at the Hopkins Center for the Arts, 4 East Wheelock Street in Hanover, NH and will include a movement workshop and social reception:
Movement Workshop: Power in Motion
4:00-5:00pm, Hop Garage 131
Through a balance of structured sequences and improvisational moments, participants will develop short sequences that highlight experimentation and multiple perspectives and encourage reflection on Graham's transformative investigations of female power through movement. This workshop is intended for movers from a range of backgrounds, genders and abilities.
Facilitated by community-based dancer and educator Ashley Hensel-Browning.
Reception: Dancers Meet-and-Greet
5:00-6:30pm, Faculty Lounge
Connect with other dance-makers about their work and upcoming projects as you enjoy some light refreshments!
