Workshop: Morphing/Evolution – An encounter with Compagnie Marie Chouinard’s creative universe, The Banff Centre

“Morphing/Evolution” is an introduction to the basic principles applied and developed by the Compagnie Marie Chouinard. Senior dancers from the company will guide participants through exercises and explorations that awaken and refine spatial awareness, movement choices and connections by use of repertoire and choreographic systems.

Work will be based on the concept of energy movement through the body in its various manifestations. Senses will be awakened through the exploration of presence, the refinement of perceptions and heightened states of being. Participants will then be guided through exercises that work the voice, the breath, facial expressivity, modulation of the spinal column; all in relation to systems used within Marie Chouinard’s choreographic landscape. By exploring new realms of creativity, participants will develop artistic versatility and discover unleashed potential in their own creative ventures.
