Internal Playwright: A Workshop with Societat Doctor Alonso 11:30 AM – 2:00 PM
This workshop does not address how to learn to choreograph as such but—on a more fundamental level—how to make decisions through the practice of observing and embodying an action. The workshop is open to dancers, actors and anyone interested in the creative process in the performing arts.
Day 3: Saturday, June 10
Noise and silence: the government doesn’t own us!
Societat Doctor Alonso Well known in Spain as performance pioneers, Catalan company Societat Doctor Alonso brings the New York premiere of Anarchy, an experiment in chaos and order, a performance where the audience takes part by playing guitars from their seats. Semolina Tomic, the performer, executes the choreography that explores the musicality of movement as the piece navigates control, chaos, order, and the question of who “owns” art. Societat Doctor Alonso combines dance and theater in creating a performance language fundamentally concerned with displacement.
Party follows: Join us for tapas, drinks, and dancing with DJ Black Lotus
