paf0805PETRA ZANKI: MYTH, DANCE, AND PLANT SCIENCE
NOV 16 – DEC 21 / WEDS 6-7:45PM
REGISTER $60 (FULL SERIES) / $15 Drop-in / $12 MVP

The workshop is a crossover between art and science, between dance and plant neurobiology. Inspired by the Pacific Northwest and its green, it will combine dance, secret movement of plants, English 19th century paintings, and shapeshifting myths from around the world.

Very movement research oriented, it will remain in its essence physical, yet will allow dancers to express their individuality and voices through stories, dreams, and myths. Together we’ll work on guided solo, duo, trio, and group propositions, while discovering exciting things we barely knew existed. Some dancers might be considered for a production in 2017. Previous dance training is required. Please bring your favorite notebook, pen, and comfortable dance clothes.

PETRA ZANKI is Seattle based dance and performance maker that among others studied movement with renown choreographers and artists such as Emio Greco, Jonathan Burrows, Patricia Bardi, Goat Island, Deufert&Plischke, and Gob Squad. In 2010 Petra was awarded as best Croatian choreographer at XI. Platform of Young Choreographers. In 2012 she received a two-year choreography scholarship SPAZIO from The ICK- Emio Greco and Croatian Institute for Movement and Dance. Her dance and theatre works were presented on festivals and venues across Europe, in the US, and Australia. In the US she collaborated with Velocity, On The Boards, and PS122.
