CALI & CO's Practice-to-Performance workshop is focused on building community by creating together. Bridging dance class practice with performance agency and original live music by Matt EL/Matt Langlois, we will cultivate our embodied experiences and generate solo, duet and group work rooted in intentional choreography, while engaging a critical analysis of the impacts of our work together. Equitable practices will support the embodied work leading to an informal, low stress and rigorous performance experience. This is a 'dance for everyone' workshop, open to ALL interested in movement and performance. This is Christine & Matt's 20th Practice-to-Performance workshop together, and are excited to be in partnership with ODC on this one!
