Responding to the environment with Norma Araiza

10 AM -12 Noon

This workshop is an investigation of the landscape and a mini creation lab that develops as a response to the surroundings. There will be an intro of what "Land Dance" is about according to Indigenous ways of interacting with the environment. Then, each individual or small group will develop a small dance or series of sequences responding to particular areas/spaces/objects located at or near the workshop site. Participants will gather at MuCCC at 10 AM.

Norma Araiza is a Mexican/Yoeme performer using dance theatre and her cultural background as her means of expression and as the core of her work. She currently lives in Toronto, Canada.

Native American Social Dance

12:30 – 2:00 PM

Daystar/Rosalie Jones will conduct a family-friendly workshop on the rudiments of

Native American Intertribal social dances. These are community dances for all ages,

children through adults and elders and are intended for recreation as well as to ‘honor’

the animals of any given region. Included will be the Round Dance, Two-Step, Fish,

Mosquito and River Dances. Along with the dance, Daystar will share the cultural story

that gives the meaning and purpose of each dance. All ages welcome!

Daystar/Rosalie Jones is of Pembina (Little Shell) ancestry. She learned Intertribal

Dance from various dancers and elders across the United States and Canada and has

taught both Indigenous traditional and modern dance to all ages over the last thirty

years.

Contact Improvisation with Katherine Marino

2:30 – 4 PM

In this workshop students learn basic principles of contact improvisation; we will be balancing, lifting, and moving together in new and creative ways! Differing from more classical acrobatic or balletic styles of partnering, we approach Contact Improvisation without the traditional roles of “base” and “flier;” instead, roles will be in constant flux, sometimes finding ourselves unsure of who is being lifted and who is lifting. Students should come away with a basic understanding of working in contact with other movers in ways that can be applied to their own movement practice. Open to all levels.

Katherine Marino is a Rochester-based choreographer and performer with a BA in Dance from Hobart and William Smith Colleges. She has performed with esteemed company PUSH Physical Theatre for the past three years, while concurrently fostering her own artistic endeavors in teaching, choreographing, hat juggling, contact improvisation, and loving life.
