Event description

Description

Presented By: Harvard Dance Center Master Class Series

Internationally acclaimed performer and choreographer Francesca Harper, artistic director of the Francesca Harper Project, will lead a master class workshop on developing movement improvisation skills. Harper has conducted improvisation workshops internationally and focuses on heightening the dialogue between structure and freedom.

Harper was a principal dancer with the Frankfurt Ballet under the direction of William Forsythe for almost a decade and found Forsythe technologies opened her mind and ultimately changed the trajectory of her artistic experience. In this class she will introduce Forsythe improvisation technologies and lead into a structured improvisation, afterwhich, the students will work on creating constructions and exercises in collaboration with Harper and receive artistic feedback on their performance qualities, and artistic choices.

This master class is designed to help the artist develop confidence and intellectual skills in making choices in the moment, leaving the student with a sense of artistic ownership and a deeper understanding of themselves as a performer and a human being.

This is an intermediate level class for dancers age 18 and over.

Participation is free, but due to limited class capacity, online registration is required for both participants and observers.

First-come, first-served, with priority given to Harvard University Undergraduate Students.
