Temporary Communities as Sources for Dancemaking with Rachel Repinz

Sunday, March 29, 2020 - 1:00pm

Whether we are aware or not, we form temporary communities all the time, when we are eating, shopping, waiting somewhere or walking on city street. Rachel Repinz has been focusing on the idea of temporary communities in her work, developing improvisation and performance structures with the help of easily available technology. In this workshop she shares this process that has been successful with teens to adults, in informal and professional settings, to mine this communal wellspring.
