Workshop II: Improvisation with Laura Ann Samuelson

  • The Launchpad 76 S 4th Street Carbondale, CO 81623 (map)

Workshop II will be taught by Front Range dancer, teacher, and choreographer Laura Ann Samuelson. She is a three-time recipient of the Encore Performance Award at Boulder International Fringe Festival and has been an artist-in-residence at the Colorado Conservatory of Dance and at SKOGEN arts in Gothenburg, Sweden. Laura Ann was named one of Colorado's most creative minds in Denver Westword's "100 Colorado Creatives Series" (2014). In her afternoon workshop, participants will investigate how we sense ourselves while being witnessed and we will also explore the complex relationships between orientation/disorientation, freedom/limitation, inside/outside, desire/reality in improvisation. This is an opportunity to approach improvisation as the practice of inhabiting more of yourself in performance and life.

All levels welcome | $12/wkshp or $20 for both
