Digital Saturday Workshop: Madison Vomastek
Feb. 6, 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm
‘Improvisation and Repertoire’
This workshop will explore William Forsythe’s improvisational technologies and the choreographic work of Richard Siegal’s 2019 “New Ocean.” I am interested in researching ballet as a means of genealogical discovery and evolution.
