Making Your Own Work with Oscar Trujillo

This workshop introduces participants to generating movement material, working with collaborators, and working with source material. After a gentle improvisational warm-up there will be task based and compositional exercises exploring creative intention that makes space for discovery and creating beyond movement habits. Once warmed up physically and creatively, participants will work in groups rotating roles as generative and “performing” artists. When directing-choreographing each person will choose a mode for creating a mini-piece – concept, music, emotion, etc. –  then dive into structuring a short group dance.
