Master Class with Faye Driscoll

Part of Faye Driscoll

Join New York–based choreographer Faye Driscoll to experience a fun, messy, and transformational performance practice where more, not less, is possible. In this workshop, participants explore the rigor of play. We will activate sensorial aliveness, move through image-based improvisations, make believe, and explore ecstatic states as tools to relax our perceptual rigidity, bringing more of ourselves into the practice. We will use our voices and our stories while we will get sweaty and move into our flesh. How do we experience ourselves in active relationship to our bodies, images, and fantasies and the space and social experiences we inhabit? How do we “play” with the material of that experience? All bodies welcome.
