This new original Banff Centre dance workshop will allow participants to work with esteemed choreographer Crystal Pite in an investigation of the relationship between text and movement, story and the body, as well as an exploration of a physical process that can deliver narrative elements and emotion.
Participants will work at their own pace, creating unique choreography and structured improvisations while exploring kinetic relationships both within their own bodies and to the space around them. The work is explorative and non-performative: its focus is on the play between analysis and instinct, and the use of improvisation both as a tool and an experience.
