Class description

The Choreographic Workshop will explore the use of choreography in relationship to design, that is, how dance and music live in symbiotic relationship to one another. Specifically, the workshop will work with two overtures: 1) Lully's "Entrée of the Grand Turk" and 2) Handel's Overture to Acis and Galatea. In each case, the choreographer and dancers will collaborate in the creative process. The workshop will feature several rehearsals and culminate in a performance of the work developed at the Innovation Forum.

The course will meet the following dates: 1/12, 1/26, 2/2, 2/9
