DanceForms Workshop with Trevor Carlson

Join us on Sunday, February 12th from 1 pm - 4 pm in The Cowles Center's Target Education Studio (2nd floor) to work with Trevor Carlson, former executive director of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, as he leads a workshop through the chance procedure software developed by Merce Cunningham. This three-hour long workshop will allow you to learn about the software and experiment as you create your own movement sequences. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about Merce’s amazing choreographic process and explore the technology for yourself!

More information:
Collaboration, technology and a constant pursuit for the new and unknown were trademarks of Merce Cunningham’s vision as an artist. One such innovation was his use of DanceForms – a dance animation software program that Cunningham utilized as a choreographic tool. In this workshop participants will explore using Cunningham’s techniques and have the opportunity create their own dance with fellow participants. Acting as both choreographers and dancers, the participants will share the unique viewpoint of seeing this process as both a creator and performer. Previous participants have found that these tools are both useful in educational and artistic exchanges.
