Cross Pollination: An approach to dance-theatre

This workshop will explore and increase creativity for makers looking to frame and support alternative productions. Theatre training generates creative ways of being for dancers. Movement exercises liberate actors, allowing a dynamic decision making both physically and vocally. This workshop enables action and reaction to learnt and improvised material. Participants will leave with concrete scenic tools and articulate theories to address social and communal issues within work and explore their skills and limits.

University Settlement Artist-in-Residence

to Dec 23

University Settlement Artist-in-Residence

During the residency at University Settlement - Company SBB will be rehearsing a new work titled Bienvenue. 

Performance Project:
Bienvenue is an interdisciplinary, immersive performance that examines the willingness to welcome and share space with incoming immigrants to the United States. It also delves into the paranoia of terror and competition that is currently influencing our citizenry to prohibit access to our borders. Bienvenue has been commissioned by La MaMa Moves and will premiere there in May 2017. 

Community Connection:
Stefanie Batten Bland plans to connect more deeply to University Settlement's Early Childhood Programs (she is already the parent of one of our preschool students). Throughout her residency, she will deepen her interactions with teachers and parents, most of whom are either first- or second-generation immigrants. She will lead workshops that will culminate in a community-produced open house festival in early spring
