Break Up Playlist in Icebox Space's Kinematic Workshop Series

I am super honored to share that I’ll be leading a workshop called “Break Up Playlist” as part of Kinematic! All are welcome.

Break Up Playlist is a cathartic, trauma-informed movement and performance practice exploring loss of all forms, but particularly the feelings surrounding the end of relationships be they platonic, professional, familial, or romantic. Using improvisational scores and group work influenced by therapy, we will make space for each other to energize using communal movement.

Which date(s) are you attending?

DUETS BY STRANGERS

  • Workshops: Monday, November 26 and Wednesday, November 28 from 6:00 - 7:15

  • Performance: Wednesday, December 5 at 7:00 pm

  • 954 Dance Movement Collective (map)

What makes a collaboration or relationship successful to you? What areas of your practice, artistic or otherwise, need the kind of TLC that can only be provided by working with a brand new person? What is intrinsically valuable about making creative work in tight proximity to others?

In this Collaboration Workshop we’ll use (artistic) BLIND DATING as a method of examining our notions of process and relating to others. In the workshop sessions we'll analyze our tendencies and attempt to frame them in context to uncover the buried biases we didn’t even know we had about working with each “other.”

All participants will be paired and given the opportunity to present their work at a performance on Wednesday, December 5 at 7 pm.

This workshop is great for artists working any medium or people pursuing creative work who want the opportunity to collaborate on a new piece in a low stakes, high turn-around process. People of all ages, backgrounds, and disciplines are highly encouraged to participate.

Cost: $5 Community Class Drop-in Rate, Performance is free!

This workshop is made possible by 954 DMC's Community Class Program

Each pair will have their initial meeting at the first workshop date on April 22, have the option of meeting on April 23, 24, and 25 and then will have the opportunity to present and perform their brand new work for the public on Thursday, April 26 at 7 pm.

Experience: A dance on a 30 foot drywall structure. Attempted human flight. Casually walking up a wall. Radically formal, free range reverence for the past. The poetry is just a series of punchlines.

Dance-theatre artist Mira Treatman will share performances, live and on screen, at the Da Vinci Art Alliance gallery space. Bring your curiosity and leave with a renewed appreciation for simple acts and human architecture.

7:00 pm Gallery Opens
