UBW’s process of art-making involves iterative cycles of rigorous embodied research informed by radical Black experimentation in the fields of culture, politics and history. The UBW performers develop a self-directed solo practice that allows them to devise original works through a collaborative process.
The Generative Dancer : A comprehensive 7-day intensive in UBW’s techniques and methodologies for dancers ready to embody and discover their full power.
Our work produces dancers who develop their creativity, performance skills and studio practice as a part of understanding how the solo voice contributes to the collective voice. We will draw upon processes of physical storytelling through a rigorous course of study that includes:
- Daily technique class that explores core strength, pelvic mobility, stabilization and creative power
- Theater processes & games to build the physical storytelling capacity
- Learning award winning UBW repertory
- Deepening solo practice for choreographic inquiry
- Theme based personal artistic research & movement development
There will be an informal showing at the end of the workshop.
June 24th - July 2nd
11am-6pm daily sessions
