Events Calendar > Master Class with Faye Driscoll
Saturday, October 222pm - 4pm$20Register at the front desk or call (415) 863-9830 x100The body is loaded — a container for the complex web that makes up one’s identity. In Driscoll’s class, participants will learn material from her new work and play with the processes she is using to develop it, dealing with state shifting and layering of intention into movement. This class will center on an investigation of movement, through improvisations and formal modalities, as a vehicle for meaning and debunking meaning. How do we allow in the multiplicity of daily narratives into our performing? “Ms. Driscoll is fascinating in that she makes such utterly original work. It doesn’t look like anything you’ve ever seen before, nor can you imagine thinking it up.” - The New York Times Faye Driscoll is a NY based choreographer who is in residence at the Headlands Center for the Arts all of October. She strives to investigate new forms of theatrical experience aimed to provoke feeling, stimulate the senses and activate the mind. Her work has been presented by places like Dance Theater Workshop, the Joyce Theater, the Wexner Center for the Arts, the Fusebox Festival and the Chicago Dancing Festival. She is a 2011 choreographic fellow at the Maggie Allesee National Center for Choreography and an Artist-In-Residence at the Baryshnikov Arts Center. Her new work will premier at the Kitchen April 2012. Driscoll is a 2010 NY Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award winner.
