So…here we are, at the end of a whirlwind 4 month long rehearsal process for 2 different shows that happened a week apart. I’m full of so many little things that I want to share about being in San Francisco to perform, meeting with my dance adviser and friend at USF, and just dance in general, but I’m almost overwhelmed at the idea of articulating it all for the internet right now. (I need to get better at blogging in the moment).
For now, I will satisfy my need to share with a few photos, because…
I’m already hitting the ground running with a couple other projects! Trying to get a personal website up for myself and brainstorming about offering simple and cheap web design services to artists, plus already knee deep in more rehearsals! Working (as a company member) with brand new company s.t.and(H) for our August debut and just got asked to do a show with one of the dancers I just worked with which sounds fantastic.
The Whole Story is an intensive workshop / laboratory / think-tank / hot-seat for dancers and dance-makers dedicated to progressing work-in-progress and advancing performance. Taught by Rosanna Gamson, with the assistance of RG/WW performers, The Whole Story is a rigorous 5-day inquiry into the brass tacks of making your dances, and your dancing, better. Increase and improve your dynamic range, musicality, and concentration as an interpretive artist. Expand, refine and redefine your toolkit as a creative artist. Become more specific, more articulate, and more YOU. As an opportunity to dig deeper, The Whole Story is designed for working dancers and choreographers who have already established their practice, and for young artists ready to move beyond an academic structure.
Each session will cover discreet material, however, the sessions are sequential and drop-ins are discouraged but some exception maybe arranged based on application.
