I am very excited to announce I will be holding “get togethers”, or Auditions at Feverhead (Columbus,OH) for a new project I am working on with Kori Martodam and Jonathan Lilly. Kori and Jonathan are Seattle based dancers, and improvisers, I met while at DIPI this past August. Our hopes are to create a “cross-continental improvisation collaborative” based on what we have learned from our experiences at DIPI, but also based on our own artistic interests as well… We will each employ, and train with our respective dance ensembles in various improvisational dance techniques, and exercises, ultimately leading to performance opportunities in our respective cities of Columbus, Oh and Seattle, WA.
I say “get togethers” because I do not like to think of these meetings as Auditions. The word audition has too much rigid formality and emotional baggage linked to it’s context. I would much rather have everyone come ready to move, discuss, converse and ready to have an enjoyable experience with out that pesky audition word looming in the atmosphere…. Meeting dates below:
- September 12, 3-6pm
- Sept. 15, 6-9pm
- Sept. 18, 5-8pm
- Sept. 24, 6-9pm
- Sept. 25, 5-8pm
- Please email me if interested in the project and select a date that will work for you to get together at Feverhead. Be ready to improvise, discuss the project, and have fun. Also bring your schedules (work, school, etc.).
