From the organizer:
(02 SLOTS LEFT BY JANUARY 5)
Chance Dance & Contact Jam is centered around Merce Cunningham’s use of chance mechanisms and indeterminacy as choreographic strategies. Participants will explore their own movement phrases by experimenting with chance methods and further develop them to create a small ensemble dance. We will wrap up the workshop with a movement jam bringing all bodies together to explore and organically develop a group dance.
Emily Navarra is a B.A. Dance Studies graduate from the University of South Florida who uses a mixture of traditional culture and societal views as a choreographic tool. She has worked under various choreographers such as Iñaki Azpillaga and Wim Vandekeybus (Ultima Vez) and Lloyd Newson (DV8 Physical Theatre) as well as presented her work in the United States, Europe, Southeast Asia, North Africa and the United Kingdom.
She formed Standpoint Theories in 2012, a collaborative yearly project which began as an experimental multimedia performance. In 2013, it transformed into its next installation – “Legends of Vietnam” which retold six Vietnamese legends through dance, visual art and live music featuring Le Cat Trong Ly.
In 2015, she founded The Movement Kitchen which aims to to offer creative experiences in a welcoming environment to spread knowledge about movement therapy, bring cultures together and encourage self-expression. She has resided in Saigon for 7 years.
