In partnership with the premiere of Timothy Buckley’s new work Looking for Mr. Rummage, Timothy and Bonnie Brooks (producer/Third Way Projects) are offering back-to-back workshops at Links Hall free of charge .

1-2pm: Buckley will lead with an interactive mind-body dance theater workshop entitled “Enacting Presence.” It is for all interested movers who would like to explore getting movement out of one's head and experiencing an expressive body - using unconventional movement sources and connecting voice with action.

2:15-3:30: Brooks will lead a 75 minute public discussion on “Dance Infrastructure, Then and Now.” This will include an overview of practices, systems of circulation, and issues for mid-sized and small dance companies going from the 1970s’ “Dance Boom” all the way to the present day, zeroing in on how to move work forward in this decade and beyond. Content will include some discussion of the impact of current and emerging communications technology and social media platforms. No whining, but plenty of fodder for discussion and exchange.

We would love to see you there!
