Open Level Improvisation
This class will offer a space for considerations on the ways innovation and improvisation are primary rituals that build tradition across various Black cultures. André M. Zachery, artistic director of Renegade Performance Group will lead participants in a movement lab structured class, in collaboration with four Black/POC sound artists, that dig into the continuous relationship between movement and sound in the African Diaspora. The class will hold a strong emphasis on generating non-verbal language and connection. Movement tasks, phrase work, sonic generation and conversation will center around contemporary Black cultural practices.
