SUMMER INTENSIVE: AUGUST 8-19, 2016
VIM VIGOR's SUMMER PROGRAM is in response to the need for contemporary dance-theater based education in New York City. The PROGRAM is anchored in Gillen's commitment to activating the whole of the performer, from the extremes of virtuosic dance to the fluid awareness of emotion and experience.
This PROGRAM will approach the following themes that reflect Gillen’s perspective on supporting the development of this totality:
Practicing Emotion + Unleashing Reaction
Full Throttle Movement + Floorwork
Reaching what we call a VIM STATE - where all is possible and interconnected
This PROGRAM will include classes that focus on contemporary dance with VIM's signature full-bodied aesthetic in combination with complex floorwork, partnering, acting, improvisation,meditation/awareness, bodywork/massage, roundtable community discussions, and a creative process with Shannon Gillen.
