Industry Listing, Workshop / Classes.

Michael Caldwell (MLC Dance) is hosting/teaching a 5-day research workshop for professional dancers and actors.

This movement-based workshop is focused on un-coveries from Caldwell's recent full-length work (Factory).

(Space is limited, so please email to register, and confirm your attendance.)

"This is an opportunity for me, to deepen my understanding of the movement generating systems at play in my artistic work. I am excited and curious to see how my research translates to a wide range of dancers and actors, different minds and bodies of all types. I view this workshop as a moment to share and exchange, and to learn."

Each 2-hour session begins with a one-hour movement-based practice - imbued with a constant sense of movement - vibrating, always shifting, bouncing, and circling through space. Breath and eye focus are integrated into a full-body experience. The latter half of the workshop is focused on the transmission of specific movement-based ideas... refining a 'way-of-working', based in the layering of physical and relational tasks, spatial dynamics, and deconstructed narrative.

This workshop is designed for movement-based performers, though all actors and dancers are encouraged to participate. Caldwell is particularly interested in a diversity of performers, with different trainings and practices, different ages, sizes, backgrounds, and abilities.
