The SESSIONS: slowdanger The SESSIONS: slowdanger
slowdanger Jun 10, 2019 - Jun 14, 2019; Mon - Fri

4:00 PM - 6:00 PM


Anna Thompson and Taylor Knight, choreographers, musicians and performing artists, are co- founders slowdanger. As a multidisciplinary performance duo, slowdanger fuses sound and movement through improvised contemporary and postmodern dance frameworks. We use found material, electronic instrumentation, vocalization, physiological centering, and ontological examination to produce our performance work. The more we engage in this collaborative work, the more we recognize the manifestation of our work as a non-binary entity that is one body amassed of multiple bodies in space. Within this system, we work with an engaged and deepened understanding of energy, synergy, action, gender, time, and storytelling. slowdanger has been featured at/in Springboard Danse Montreal, Dance Magazine’s ‘ 25 to Watch’, Sidra Bell Dance New York’s MODULE, MovementInventionProject, Links Hall Chicago, The Andy Warhol Museum, BAAD!, CPR and The Carnegie Museum of Art.

Workshop Description

Within slowdanger’s SESSIONS, co-artistic directors Taylor Knight and Anna Thompson open up facets of their creative and training practices to SESSIONS participants. This 5 day intense study will include investigations in improvisational technical integration (STech), imagery/qualitative physical modalities (SPI), repertory/phrase work, physical threshold/dynamics, ensemble listening/sensing (group body), qualitative internal studies (subtle viewing), sound embodiment studies, vocal/vibration studies (resonant body) and more. These modalities will be applied within fluid structures to connect, transform, and disrupt.

Workshop Fees
Full Workshop: $100
Single Class Drop-In: $25.00
