With internationally renowned guest artists and scholars Faye Driscoll// Zoe Scofield and Juniper Shuey// Pavel Zuštiak, along with esteemed University of Utah faculty Pamela Geber-Handman// Eric Handman// Stephen Koester.

OVERVIEW

SaltDanceFest 2014 brings together internationally renowned dance artists and dance makers Faye Driscoll, Zoe Scofield, Juniper Shuey, and Pavel Zuštiak, along with esteemed University of Utah faculty Pamela Geber-Handman, Eric Handman, and Stephen Koester for two weeks of moving, collaborating, dance making and the lively exchange of ideas, June 2 – 13, 2014. SaltDanceFest is excited to have these significant, cutting edge artists in residence to share their unique and acclaimed artistic perspectives, and for their range and diversity of aesthetics and approaches to dance.

SaltDanceFest, unique among dance festivals in the western United States, is committed to the exploration of the creative process in addition to contemporary technique and repertory work. With participants from around the country and the world, the workshop highlights and investigates the creative process and is designed to be a laboratory that nurtures and supports experimentation, exploration, curiosity, collaboration and the development of innovative choreography. Participants work intimately with acclaimed artists, developing and exploring ideas in dance and choreography. Now in its fourth year, past artists at SaltDanceFest have included: Eiko & Koma, Chris Aiken, Angie Hauser, Teri and Oliver Steele, Marina Mascarell, Paul Selwyn Norton, Vickie Cortes, Kyle Abraham, Maura Keefe, Miguel Gutierrez, and Netta Yerushalmy.

The workshop is housed at the University of Utah – a hub of dance pedagogy, performance and choreographic creation for the American West. Participants of SaltDanceFest select from three blocks of daily classes, engaging with the artists in: Contemporary Technique, Improvisational Practices, Performance Research, Stage Environments, Composition, Creative Process, Repertory, Partnerin­­­g and Somatics (see class schedule below).

The SaltDanceFest 2014 class schedule will operate on a block system – participants may sign up for up to three blocks of classes as they prefer. Specific class requests, identified on the application form, are on a first-come first-served basis (further class information follows). The workshop/festival additionally includes a free morning somatic practice class as an introduction to the day, lectures and panel discussions with the guest artists, an improvisation jam and social events, as well as opportunities to present work in showings and concerts.

Workshop participants are expected to be mature dancers and young professionals interested in further developing choreographic, creative, performance and movement investigative skills. Participants must be 18 or older, and are expected to dance at an intermediate technical or advanced level. Enrollment is limited, providing more individual attention for each workshop participant. Housing and meals are available at an additional cost. College credit is also available. SDF participants may extend their studies in Utah at Repertory Dance Theatre’s Summerdance 2014 Workshop and/or Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company’s, Move-It Summer Dance Workshop (see information below).  Info at rdtutah.org and ririewoodbury.com.

CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

danceDANCEdance (some ideas about technique) – Zoe Scofield

Zoe Scofield’s classes are an accumulation of images and sensations made physical (through/in) a structured continuous improvisation based on accumulating tasks that (play with / examine) musicality, weight moving through initiation points and visual and physical metaphor, with some recognizable technique exercises (i.e.: plies, tendus, battements, etc.) thrown in the mix.

Class serves as an opportunity to create or open up new avenues for the dancers in order to utilize their intelligent, technical body.  Using a series of accumulating tasks we turn up the volume of our curious, responsive animal body, drowning out the noise from our comparative judgmental brain.  Together, our commitment to begin again in each class functions to surprise and further each of our potential.

Present Body – Pavel Zuštiak

This exploration and improvisation workshop will attempt to heighten our presence on stage, awareness of the performer’s body as well as overall composition. How to allow for things to happen and let go of what just took place? How to handle what was rehearsed yet stay open to what is happening in the given moment?

The objectives in this class are to develop conscious presence while improvising in performance; to amplify live time in the performance space; to support performers in developing and enhancing skills connecting technique to composition and to introduce individual artists to the concerns which occur while under the conditions of ensemble improvisation.

Somatics and Experiential Anatomy– Pamela Geber Handman

Somatics is a field of study that involves looking at oneself from the  “inside out, where one is aware of feelings, movements and intentions, rather than looking objectively from the outside in” (Jill Green).   Philosopher Thomas Hanna first coined the term “somatics” in 1928 and discrete somatic forms developed from there such as Alexander Technique, Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement, Body Mind Centering, Bartenieff Fundamentals, Ideokinesis among others.  Many of the underlying principles of somatic study have existed even longer than the term “somatics.”

Drawing from a myriad of somatic forms and experiential anatomy, we will explore movement possibilities improvisationally as a means toward releasing excess muscular tension, becoming proprioceptively attuned, and becoming increasingly integrated physically and mentally.  Each class will center around a specific theme.

Practice More Failure – Faye Driscoll

Warming up deeply through image-driven improvisations and formal modalities this class will invite the dancer to fully sink into the body, experiencing where we are dense, spacious and perhaps not as solid as we think. We will focus on the activation of sensorial aliveness, make believe, and ecstatic states, in order to create less perceptual rigidity and radically re-frame what dance performance is. We’ll learn phrases of movement ranging from the spasmodic to the smooth that call upon a-typical technique, thwarted and followed momentum, choice making and insertion of intention into movement. This class will physically attune, challenge and delve into questions around why we perform.

zoe | juniper repertory – Zoe Scofield and Juniper Shuey

Rather than a straight setting of work, class participants will work with both Zoe and Juniper on the recreation of z|j’s past works and creative process within a specific work or combination of works.  By analyzing the choreographic, visual and music/sound process used by Zoe, Juniper and their designers, the class allows each dancer to have a new, clear and personal experience in the work/s.  Participants discover the emotional, and physical experiences of the work/s in its entirety and gain a more profound level of ownership in the creative process.

Art of Looking Sideways, Making Work: Ideas, Practice and Process – Pavel Zuštiak

This composition workshop attempts to unveil and develop that which is brought in by the participants and their individual interest in dance making, and address some of the questions they encounter in their creative process. It brings them away from the notion that original is that which didn’t exist before. We will introduce different ways of getting away from the planned, comfortable and familiar in dance making. How do you start? What is material? How to bring playfulness to the process and get out of our own way?

stage environments | spatial design and creation :: how installation and performance connect – Juniper Shuey

This class is about expanding one’s use of technology as a way to deepen and open up creative practice. Deliberately expansive in its approach to, and use of, technology, it describes media/materials as broader tools rather than a singular form or instrument.

Participants will develop performance-based installations by investigating the use of materials, lighting, sound and video projections as a way to create spatial design in collaboration with the human form. We will find ways to treat our palette of materials and tools in the same way one would use a body in space, trying to understand and enhance the viewers’ experience within the construction of our spatial designs.

The class will build on a series of daily studies experimenting with the relationship between bodies, projection, video, sound, light and materials while addressing the limitations of equipment and searching for innovative ways to work with the tools at hand.

This class is open to dancers, choreographers and designers who all are interested in finding ways to work collaboratively with technology by exploring how to accentuate and use the space to amplify both the choreographed and the viewer’s bodies.

Choreographing Partnering: Submergence and Emergence – Eric Handman and Stephen Koester

This course is a composition class focused on introducing and exploring devices for choreographing innovative partnering.  Partnering, broadly defined as dancing with a heightened awareness, sensitivity and physical connection with another or others, is an essential tool in choreography today.  In class we will create new work daily as a way to: enhance our attention to the opportunities of the moment; make choices from within the dance based on the immediate physical situation; and witness how surprising choreographic structures emerge from collaborative dynamics. Physical problem solving, as well as corporeal, conceptual and perceptual skill-building will be interwoven with exercises, many from contact improvisation, to sensitize us to touch, prepare us for giving and taking weight and attuning us to the timing, space and energy of our partner’s motion. This class is designed to introduce devices for facilitating ongoing action, discovery, surprise and inspiration.
