Movement Lab | Saturdays 10:30am – 12:00 at TEN31 Productions
Balancing wildness and specificity, class will focus on bringing awareness to inner sensation as it paces creative expression to reveal the body’s instincts and inherent musicality. Full bodied dance phrases and integrated floor work will practice the coordination of effort and release in the body as a route to finding both our freest and deeply rooted dancing.
Three week series runs February 27, March 6 + March 13.
Contact Improv Providence | Mondays 7-9pm at 116 Calverly
Contact improvisations are spontaneous physical dialogues that range from stillness to highly energetic exchanges. Alertness is developed in order to work in an energetic state of physical disorientation, trusting in one’s basic survival instincts. It is a free play with balance, self-correcting the wrong moves and reinforcing the right ones, bringing forth a physical/emotional truth about a shared moment of movement that leaves the participants informed, centered, and enlivened.

The year is 2080. iTMRW, the love story of Robert and his android partner, Jenny, unfolds against the backdrop of a world where advanced technology is both a source of, and a “cure” for human alienation: advertisements come in the form of “pop-up thoughts,” entire cities float on islands of trash, female forms are purchased and discarded at will, and aristocrats live in a state of debauchery and despair. The piece takes its title from iTMRW, the mega-corporation that produces and sells every single product known to humankind. Despite societal chaos, the human spirit persists in its quest for love.
Choreographed by Danielle Davidson and Performed by Gisela Creus, Jacob Reagan, Stephanie Turner, Ellen Oliver, Jessica Howard and Orlando Hernandez
