Workshop Description

Each 3-hour session includes technique, repertory/exploration/improvisation, and a ‘meet the artist’ discussion.

Within this two-day workshop, we will dive into Gibney Company’s Repertory Forming Out, choreographed by Peter Chu. Connecting to Peter’s inspirations from the ocean, chi-gong practices, and natural rhythms, Jesse will guide the participants through a weighted and breathy contemporary class, the Forming Out repertory, and a shared space for conversation as artists and activists within our field.
