Dance Projects by ME invites the Minnesota-based dance community to participate in the Movement as Language Workshops and Performance Cast.
The workshop provides an introduction to dance and choreographic tools. The theme of this ML 2023 workshop series is migration – participants will be guided through movement exercises and encouraged to develop their own choreography as a way of storytelling. We will examine migration from our unique perspectives as a transition or transformational experience in life. The focus of this workshop will be to learn how to use our body as an instrument for expression and is open to adults of all abilities and levels of dance experience.
At the end of the workshops series is the opportunity for 5 participants to complete the cast for the community performance at the Southern Theatre on June 16 and 17. All workshop participants who are interested are invited to apply to join this creative process. BIPOC, LGBTQ+, ESL, and community members with disabilities are encouraged to participate. No dance experience is required.
