This workshop is a rare opportunity to explore dance and music collaboration with contemporary dance maverick Douglas Dunn and his long time musical collaborator Steven Taylor from NYC.

“Mr. Dunn…is a prolific choreographer whose incisive dances marry rigor with an absurdist edge. Extremes define Mr. Dunn, who performed with both the Merce Cunningham Dance Company and Grand Union, the experimental performance collective.” The New York Times, by Gia Kourlas, Jan 2014
Who is it for?
The workshop is targeted towards professional dancers and musicians, who have either completed a formal training program or have professional experience in their chosen field. It also presupposes the idea of dancers and musicians as creators, and thus seeks those that wish to create in a collaborative way, in some form or another. Ideally, the workshop will include 20 participants (10 dancers/choreographers & 10 musicians/composers), up to a maximum of 28.
What will happen?
The premise of the workshop is straightforward: A morning session devoted to warm-up, training, and preparation, with dancers and musicians in separate studios, and an afternoon session with all participants working, experimenting and creating together.
