Class Description: "Mechanics of Continuity"
This class introduces students to simultaneous leading and following, when two people are sharing weight in a contact dance. It also explores the act of moving solo, in order to bring one’s best self to a dance.
Jo Kreiter is a San Francisco-based choreographer with a background in political science. Through dance she engages physical innovation and the political conflicts we live within. Her company, Flyaway Productions explores the range and power of female physicality. Kreiter creates a sense of spectacle to make a lasting impression with an audience, striving for the right balance of awe, provocation, and daring. Kreiter’s tools include community collaboration, a masterful use of place, a feminist lens and a body-based push against the constraints of gravity. Recent awards include a Rauschenberg Artist as Activist Fellowship, and a National Dance Project Creation Grant.
