About the Sessions:

How wonderful it is to do what we do in the community with others! These sessions are an opportunity to cultivate curiosity in our individual practices by exchanging with other movement-based artists working in Winnipeg. These four sessions are designed as a flexible work/playroom for you as a mover/dancer to explore your ideas, present scores or frameworks to play with as a group, share a movement technique you’ve learned, share a work-in-progress for feedback, engage in a dialogue and connect as a community in a casual and practical setting. Each session will be guided by the curiosities brought forth that day by participating artists.

These sessions will be facilitated by Zorya Arrow, who will shepherd the sessions towards the following structure:

10:00 am-10:15 am Solo warm-up and chat
10:15-10:30 Share what you are interested in and make a plan for the session
10:30-11:30 Experiment/share/do/teach/learn together
11:30-11:45 Break
11:45-12:45 pm Experiment/share/do/teach/learn together
12:45-1:00 Wind down/cool down/chat

Cultivating the creative spark through togetherness, these sessions are meant to bolster an artist’s practice while building community through gathering in an exchange of ideas.
