October 5-7 Texas Dance and Improvisation Festival at Texas Women’s University-Teacher
Rhythm, Texture, Flow This workshop will explore a layered set of questions that dive deep into swimming with rhythmic patterning, the textures of memory, and finding flows. We will ask questions about moving deeply into nuances occurring at the same time and then also of rupture and slippage. The material will begin with guided work that delves into meditative spaces and then moves into more structural groundedness-Participants will find space to “flow” with each other and separately into accumulations that connect rhythm, texture and flow. Teaching 6th and 7th.
