Still Standing You

There are countless ways of existing with each other if we assume our body does not end with our skin.

How can we look to another as a continuation of ourselves?
How can we reassign or leave behind our identity and still be there?
How can we define a re-organization of the body that includes the other?
Can we make our negotiation of the body more visible than its representation and at the same time produce interesting movement material?
How can we generate movement through thought rather than through habit?
Or how can we inhabit a thought without relying on our physical tendencies?

Through classes and workshop, Jared Gradigner and Angela Schubot, will mainly focus on partner and group work concretizing these questions, watching each other and feeding back.

They are providing classes, which are open to everyone, as well as a two-day intensive workshop for dancers with a minimum of three years experience.
