This technique master class, co-taught by Xan Burley + Alex Springer, explores their collaborative body of work. Warm-up attends to the shifting weight of the body at rest and in motion, generating heat for endurance, strength, and stability. Class exercises work to develop alignment and intelligent corporeal engagement in preparation for complex material. Improvisation practices wherein we regard the body as a receptive vessel instigate authentic embodiment of both individual and collective creative identities. Class will include phrase material drawn from Burley’s and Springer’s current repertory.
