TEMPORARILY ON HOLD

Outdoor Adult Contemporary Dance

Taking a short Break! Start date TBD

at the Haus of Glitter Performance Lab + Parq


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.

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. — early definition by Steve Paxton and others, 1970s,
from CQ Vol. 5:1, Fall 1979

Weekly classes and jams are facilitated by Jason Woofenden, Stephanie Turner, Jeff Doff, Shura Baryshnikov and Alexa Barriga. Check out our full schedule and class descriptions – Contact Improv Providence

iTMRW

a 75-minute dance theater piece set to a live performance of a futuristic concept album by Arc Iris, premieres through The American Repertory Theatre (A.R.T)


January 25th + 26th at Oberon in Harvard Square
March 13th at the Shea Center in Turner Falls
March 18th at the La Poisson Rouge in NYC

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
