In It: Class description

This class eases into what’s in the room, acknowledging and working with what’s there—that includes the pragmatic situation at hand and the inherent mystery of how we all arrived at this place in time and everything that has informed that arrival. I’ll cull from what I naturally do in my rehearsal process—prepare, move, look, write and talk, and will gently transpose my current choreographies and their attendant processes, Fear in Porcelain and Sister to a Fiend, to In It to heighten our sensitivity and awareness of how we engage in the fundamental and profound activities of moving, seeing and articulating feedback.
