Homebodies is a choreographic project leading to the creation of new pieces of solo choreography performed in participants' homes. The 6-week project led by ABDP co-founder Naomi Brand, seeks to exploit the artistic potential of our personal surroundings and create an opportunity for making and sharing dances while at a distance.
Participants will be guided through weekly group workshops/showings with tasks, questions and activities to develop movement vocabulary, choose a performance location, work with music and frame the camera for performance. Participants will receive peer to peer feedback through this facilitated process. Beyond the weekly workshops, the project requires a commitment to a minimum of 2 hours of weekly solo rehearsal. The project will culminate in a live, public performance via Zoom.
Members of the ABDP community interested in developing their choreographic skills and performance experience, and are available to commit to a six-week, self-directed, at-home creative process. Number of participants is limited. Expressions of interest required.
Online via Zoom. Rehearsals in your home.
