Sunday, November 20, 11 am - 2 pm
Relationship is self-existing
In this session we will explore how we might create together,
collaboratively, and how we embody our audience as well. As a corollary, we
will explore the question: How do we relate to things we can’t control?
Could we take the pressure off ourselves to be so brilliant and awesome all
the time?

*action is primary with Meg Foley*
Sunday, November 20, 5:30 - 8:30 pm
action is primary is an improvisational practice and mode of making in the
moment that examines how attention, imagination, embodied presence, and the
ghosts of our choices tumble through form (our form, the dance’s form) in a
constant play of regeneration and falling inwards and spilling out. In this
workshop we will train and delve deeply into physically based perceptual,
emotional, and compositional tasks and approaches towards ripe

*Personal Resonance: a two part/two level voice class for all disciplines *
*with Michael Kiley*
Sunday, November, 20, 2:30 -4:30 pm (An Introduction)
Monday, November, 21, 7 - 9 pm (An Exploration)
The act of singing has been defined by our culture as an elitist act that
only few may do. Public singing has all but disappeared from daily life.
The institutionalization and corporatization of singing has lulled us into
accepting that most of us have no business doing it. Yet singing is one of
the most beneficial personal acts of expression and healing possible within
the human form. This two part workshop consists of an introduction, in
which you will be introduced to physical explorations of sound and will
begin the process of reclaiming your voice as an instrument of expression
and an exploration, in which you will move into deeper material
exploration, generation, and construction in solo and group forms.
