Notes from The AiR: 3 Community Workshops Announced

Notes from the Artist in Residence (AiR), Alexandra Joye Warren:


A series of three community workshops is coming to the parks! The public is invited to join Alex and JOYEMOVEMENT dance company in these participatory dance experiences exploring concepts the choreographer has addressed in her development of the ‘choreoplay’, A Wicked Silence. Workshop participants should come prepared to learn from and dance alongside the artist, as they move together through creative exercises addressing three themes of this Artist in Residence experience: Space, Self, and Community.


Workshops are FREE to attend and drop-ins are welcome. Open to all levels of experience, ages 13+. Participants are encouraged to come ready to dance with comfy clothes/shoes and a water bottle.


Site-Specific Dance Workshop

Saturday, July 10, 2-3pm

Meet at Price/Bryan Stage in LeBauer Park

This Site-Specific Dance Workshop will invite participants to explore LeBauer and Center City Parks in a whole new way, as we learn what it means to interact with park spaces and features through creative movement. How do you dance WITH a space, and not just in it? What elements in your experience with the parks inspire you to move? By creating site-specific choreography, we'll explore questions like these while dancing with the playground features of the Children's Garden, the flowers in Carolyn's Garden, the synchronized jets of the Center City fountain, and more.

Meet at Price/Bryan Stage in LeBauer Park

This Embodying Narrative Dance Workshop will explore telling stories of self and identity through movement. How do we translate our concrete experiences through the body? What are the stories that the body wants to tell? These are questions we'll explore as we ask you to come prepared to interpret your stories of self through dance.
