Embodied Insights into Last Shelter, Candoco’s Latest Work by Jeanine Durning


WHEN September 15, 2022
6:30 PM WHERE The Arts Center at NYU Abu Dhabi Part of "Off the Stage Events" WHO The Arts Center at NYU Abu Dhabi Open to the Public

Discover acclaimed choreographer Jeanine Durning’s choreographic concept of “nonstopping,” a practice that forms the foundation of her work for CanDoCo, Last Shelter. Developed over twenty years, this tool uncensors movement and speech to allow dancers to make movements from a more subconscious, intuitive, or even essential level rather than from a learned or trained way.

This workshop will introduce participants to this practice and offer embodied insights into the ‘micro-scores’ and strategies used to build and perform this work.

Open to disabled and non-disabled dancers of all levels of experience, participants will have the chance to find out what it was like for company dancers to make the work and find their own creative voice and choice within it. This workshop will be practical so please wear loose comfortable clothing and be ready to join in. Observing only is not allowed but no previous dance experience is necessary.

Capacity: 25
Duration: 90 minutes
Age and skill: 15+ Intermediate level with some movement experience
