Duets By Strangers | Collaboration Workshop & Performance Opportunity

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

Dixon Place presents Dr. Mira

At a moment in history when almost anything can be summoned on demand through the shiny bright rectangle in your pocket, many human experiences are lost. This troubling new development is the reason you must pay a visit to Dr. Mira. Experience crucial moments of reckoning with the future while a dancer posing as a doctor provides maximum cathartic release for you and one hundred of your newest best friends, a.k.a. your fellow audience members. No humans will be harmed in the making of this art.

Tickets on sale now at dixonplace.org/performances/dr-mira/. Runtime: 45 min. 

This work is made possible through in progress performances and support from Dixon Place, Arts Letters & Numbers, Waxworks, Movement Research Open Performance, FringeArts Scratch Night, Glasshouse, Soundspace, and Leah Stein Dance Company.

A1 | Gallery Showing

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

8:00 pm Performance of Dr. Mira

Take an open workshop with Mira at 954 Movement Collective in Philadelphia. In "Generous Performance-Making" you'll engage with other performers in a theoretical playground. There will be space to test dance hypotheses in a literally and figuratively open studio.  This is a workshop for thinking bodies to discover the bridge between a studio practice and a performance. There will be ample amounts of time allotted for reflection, discussion and writing. Bring water, snacks and a journal for writing.  Cost: $10, no one turned away for lack of funds.
