9:00AM CALIFORNIA | 12 NOON NYC | 6:00PM BERLIN | 7:00PM SOFIA
Description of class series:
Composing While Dancing series is for improvisers and anyone interested in expanding their skills on different techniques in composition and improvisation. This 7 class Zoom series presents improvisation through a lens of digital theatricality, always conscious of “the presence” of the dancer. Focusing on modalities outside of the more conventional compositional improvisation class, Zornitsa hopes to open more possibilities for instant composition helping you understand the digital space, as well as delve deeper into your own interests and practice.
Each class will focus on:
Jan. 13th – Understanding the digital frame better and how to use tricks to compose in that space
Jan. 15th – movement timing and phrasing through quality shifts, speed, and distance
Jan. 20th – working with gesture and posture in creating potential for meaning
Feb. 10th – morphing our bodies into recognizability
Feb. 12th – using our face and body to evoke emotional states, using emotionality in improvisation
Feb. 17th – different ways in using language in improvisation
Feb. 19th – switching states, qualities, emotions
Each class is $7-$15 sliding scale and the whole series is $60 – $85 sliding scale.
BodyMeld also accepts $1 donations to support other independent artists in Philadelphia.
