Lecture & Demonstration with Artists in Residence Rashaun Mitchell and Silas Riener

  • The Launchpad 76 South 4th Street Carbondale, CO, 81623 United States (map)

Dance Initiative honored to host New York City artists Rashaun Mitchell + Silas Riener and their four company members as Artists in Residence at The Launchpad Oct. 17-22. Mitchell & Silas, former Merce Cunningham dancers, choreograph collaboratively on works that push the boundaries of contemporary dance research. Join them for this free Lecture and Demonstration during which they will discuss their work as it relates to the idea of transformation: the transformation of the body, the transformation of spaces. In their work the dancing body becomes many things, a vehicle for poetic expression, a site holding many divergent personal histories, and a vessel for the magical, fantastical and spiritual. They will show excerpts of their site-specific and theatrical work from the last 5 years of experimentation and discuss these ideas. FREE!
