“States of grace” is what can happen when all the balls are in the air at once: solo dancing, contact improvisation, non-CI improvisation, composition, contemplation, listening, performance/art, mystery, and humanity. This three day workshop aims to weave these strands into satisfying, focused, curious, embodied, and engaged solo, duo, and group improvisations. The Underscore on Saturday, December 3 will be the culminating vehicle for our discoveries.
