The purpose of this workshop is to utilize the body to express relationships and interactions with architectural set pieces.

SCHEDULE 

in person and virtual

jUNE 28-July 6, 2021 (no class July 4)     

10am-2pm (PST)

Period 1: DIAVOLO Warm-up (45 minutes)

Preparing your body to be pushed beyond your physical limit and discovering your strengths. 

Period 2: DIAVOLO Training (45 minutes)

Looking at your own environment like a playground, as a source, as an inspiration for creating movement. A relation and interaction between your body and your space. 

 

Period 3: DIAVOLO Repertoire (30 minutes)

Participants will learn existing choreography from Part One of DIAVOLO’s show L.O.S.T [Losing Oneself Temporarily], CUBICLE (2015).

Immerse yourself in the themes, qualities, and intricate movement sections of this original piece.

 

Period 4: DIAVOLO Creation (2 hours)

How do we prepare for tomorrow? How do we prepare dancers for a post-pandemic world?

In today's landscape, where we feel isolated living with the unfamiliar, we ask ourselves how do we have the strength to rise every morning? What makes us continue to believe in ourselves?

 

This workshop focuses on you... your aspirations & your desires.

 

It's time to feel like an artist again. Through DIAVOLO's one-of-a-kind creative process, you will create the text that will become your script for movement. We will create solo work and group movement sections that support this unique time in our lives. 

 

CONSTRUCT is not only about building a new structure and creating a new piece... it is about constructing the artists of tomorrow.
