Kizuna Dance Workshop | Contemporary Hip-Hop and Floorwork

Kizuna Dance Workshop | Contemporary Hip-Hop and Floorwork Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

Explore Cameron McKinney’s NAGARE technique – which activates oppositional forces and contrasting sensations to achieve fluid transitions – in this two-hour workshop that combines the grace of modern dance with the speed and fluidity of streetdance, capoeira, and house dance. Focus on how to move smoothly from high to low to high again through dance phrases that involve every part of the body while rediscovering “the down” through floorwork from contemporary dance forms. By shifting the focus from an internal dialogue to creating movement that tells a story, the class will delve deeper into the cathartic potential of sweat and exhaustion, while offering a new and active method of expression. This workshop introduces a unique approach to contemporary floorwork, while also exploring the rawness of underground streetdance.

Open to dancers of all levels, 16 years old and up

Free Performance with Met Opera Singers and Batsheva Dancers at the Clark 8/26

Free Performance with Met Opera Singers and Batsheva Dancers at the Clark 8/26
Description:

On August 26th, Matthew Aucoin , the Met Opera’s youngest ever assistant conductor and co-Artistic Director of the new American Modern Opera Company (AMOC), brings AMOC to the Clark Art Institute for an afternoon of mini-concerts from some of the most diverse and vibrant young singers, instrumentalists and dancers active today. The ensemble includes stars of the Metropolitan Opera, musicians of the International Contemporary Ensemble, and former and current dancers of the world-renowned Batsheva Dance Company. The young company’s commitment is to reimagine the experience of opera – from conception to performance.
Performing en plein air, the artists will activate the landscape of the Clark’s beautiful campus. Throughout the afternoon their performances will take place everywhere from the Fernández Terrace and among Thomas Schütte: Crystal, an architectonic sculpture that overlooks the Berkshire mountains, to the stunning classical façade of the original museum. The Clark is the first stop for AMOC before appearing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the ODC Theater in San Francisco.
Along with Aucoin (“the most promising operatic talent in a generation” – The New York Times), on piano, the performers include countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo (“utterly riveting” – The New York Times), violinists Miranda Cuckson (“one of the most sensitive and electric interpreters of new music” – Downbeat Magazine) and Keir GoGwilt (“amazingly supple technical finesse…a lustrous sonority” – San Diego Story), cellist Coleman Itzkoff (“flawless technique and keen musicality” – The New Yorker), percussionist Jonny Allen (“jaw-dropping virtuosity” – Washington Post), and pianist Conor Hanick (“brilliant,” “effortlessly elegant” – The New York Times). Bobbie Jene Smith, choreographer and former star of the world-renowned Batsheva Dance Company and Or Schraiber, current Company member of Batsheva, will perform original pieces alongside these top instrumentalists.
AMOC at the Clark runs from 2-5:30pm on Sunday August 26th and is completely free and open to the public. For questions or more information call (917) 502-2012 or email esiyanko@clarkart.edu.
