Performance Project: Why Dance Now? (DAN4141.01)

Rebecca Brooks, MFA Teaching Fellow

Throughout this creative process we will cultivate mindful embodiment as a radical political act. Rebecca Brooks will create a new performance work built on the premise that deep somatic engagement vastly affects us both individually and collectively. How can dancing prepare us to propagate change, to stay in action no matter what, to sharpen our awareness to our environment beyond the studio? We will work with both improvisation and set movement material to develop systems that both harness and magnify our accumulated interests. The new work will be presented in one of the end‐of‐term concerts. Some movement experience is appreciated, though students from any discipline are encouraged to audition.
