* please note that the festival is for everybody regardless of experience level, however classes can often be intense and may include technique or skill work. push your edges but know your limits *
The intensives are workshops within the festival studying with one of two artists. These are limited to 30 participants each and consist of 4 hours of daily working in a group.
Morning sessions will be 9:30am-1:30pm Afternoon sessions will be 2:30pm-6:30pm
Because of the focused and cumulative nature of the work, participants in the intensives are asked to enroll and participate in all 4 days.
Daily classes will be ongoing from 9:30am to 7:00pm every day. Each class is 2 hours in length and will be taught by a rolling roster of the 9 teaching artists (no intensive teachers). Classes will consist of somatic inquiry/improvisation, technique classes + composition work. These can be signed up for as part of the festival package or on a walk-in basis, however each class is limited to 20 participants on a first come/first serve basis. Class descriptions available
live music when available*
Throughout the festival and alongside the daily classes will be informal workshops, labs and discussions in the smallest of the 3 studios. These will be determined by the members of the festival but could include everything from score/choreography conversations, discussions about diversity and/or socio-political issues, small movement explorations . During meal breaks and open times Studio 3 can also be used as a down-time room. Lab descriptions available
Occasionally we offer mini-workshops within the festival w visiting teachers. Workshops inside the festival may consist of a wide range of topics from film and writing to the applications of costuming + sets/location for performance. 2020 Workshop descriptions TBA
