Choreography creation lab and artistic development
september 1 - 5 2020
October 7 - 14 2020
Conception is an inquiry-based intensive focused on the creative process of dance making and how to develop your voice as an artist.
You will spend 30 plus hours with a group of peers learning movement and technique paired with specific activities to explore how to arrange movement and make it your own. You’ll receive support, tools, and a community of peers as you create your own choreography, explore your vision, and take both to the next level.
We’ll delve into elements of time, space, shape, dynamics, musicality and texture, but then we’ll take it further. We’ll learn how to form your vision through movement and put it on your body, other dancers, and groups. This course includes a choreography follow-up with Kami and the full group 3 months after the intensive.
The Krysalis program is designed to meet you where you are, no matter the level.
you’re looking to develop your dance voice or hone in on what that vision is
you’re searching for fresh tools to unblock your creative side when you get stuck
you’re striving to move past merely emulating specific dance moves when making a choreography
