Want to work with a diverse group of people to create performances? So do we! Move Move Collaborative artists will draw on years of experience to offer movement practices outside of traditional dance classes. The first four classes feature movement artists Peter Redgrave, Matt Williams, Ariel Foster, and more; sharing techniques that range from butoh to contact improv to clowning. These techniques come to a head in the fifth session, which centers around planning an original performance! Participants will learn about different ways to organize a performance—durational, score based, and choreographed modes will be explored. The final class will be an open sharing of our collective thinking. Please come and get expansive and get move moving!

Apr 6: Emmett Wilson (Philly) and Talbolt Johnson (Baltimore) will be working with all of the people we carry within us, the histories, the gestures, and the power.

Organization Bio
Move Move Collaborative was founded in 2017 by Peter Redgrave as a space to explore least-hierarchical decision-making structures in performance building. Seven cohorts, including dozens of artists from across North America and Europe have gathered to share practices, perspectives, and perform together since the project began. Each crew is animated by a diverse range of movement artists, dancers, and somatic practitioners. The live performances we make bring community movement art into the room and dance with it!
