Open Improvisation
composition and choice making through movement

Join Marlee Grace for a workshop in improvising as a tool for performance, choice making, and composition. We’ll work through solo movement, duets, and group work – playing with space and generosity, spontaneity and thoughtfulness, solitude and togetherness.
We’ll look at different ways to discover your own movement vocabulary as well as collaborate with others

No dance experience required, just a willingness to move your body
No moves to learn! All movement generated from your self
