Dance Initiative Artists In Residence, Marielis Garcia of NYC and David Norsworthy of Toronto, Canada, need you, the Carbondale community, to participate in a co-creation process during one of two workshop sessions (open to anyone ages 16 and up) that will include simple movement exercises, personal reflection and group discussion. Norsworthy and Garcia hope is that through these workshops, they will be able to gather passing thoughts, anecdotes, jokes, profound questions, silly curiosities, fascinations, political concerns which they will transform and abstract these “thought artifacts” into choreographic scores and structures that will serve as the source material for a new choreographic work that is a snapshot of the Carbondale community. This choreographic work is part of a series of small community snapshots from all over the country. The workshops environment will be genuine, welcoming, playful and provocative. Participants do not need dance or movement experience to participate. It is highly preferred that participants attend BOTH sessions, but participants may only attend a single session if they cannot commit to both. Please RSVP to participate at www.danceinitiative.org.
