About the Program
Inspired by Anne Green Gilbert's BrainDance and Lisa Nelson's PAUSE Scores, this movement workshop will invite participants to play with the geometry of their bodies such that they reflect and complement Imi Knoebel’s 24 Colors – For Blinky. Exploring in solo and duet, we will explore how the color and size of Knoebel's shapes can inform the dance experience.
Recommended for ages 7-10. Younger children are welcome to participate, but must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
