Artist Workshop with Artivism Dance Theatre

/// March 30 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Tina Girouard pushed the envelope of what art was through her performances and collaborations.

Join Artivism Dance Theatre to explore Girouard’s work and the concept of art as activism. Company members will lead participants through the steps of the creative process and discuss art activism (what it is and why it is important). Participants will view one of Artivism’s latest works and be introduced to a variety of techniques for generating creative work. Afterwards, participants will then use the techniques learned to create a short choreographic phrase around an issue of their choosing.

This workshop includes a brief tour of the exhibition Tina Girouard: SIGN-IN. Participants are encouraged to bring something that inspires them to be the catalyst of their work, such as a poem, artwork, image etc.

All materials are provided. Must be 18 years or older to attend.

$45 member/ $50 non-member

About Artivism Dance Theatre

Artivism Dance Theatre is a collective of artists dedicated to bringing awareness to social issues through art.

“We tell our own stories in an effort to reach across divisions, find commonality, and spark change. We prioritize communication of social message over esoteric performance, often using multimedia techniques in our work. We believe that art, and specifically movement, can communicate perspective and experience across gaps in culture, language, and tradition that might otherwise remain unreachable.”

The collaborative is comprised of dance professionals with years of experience in both performance and instruction. Trained in a great variety of techniques, Artivism’s repertoire displays the expertise of company members ranging from movements of the African diaspora to Ballet. They believe in the power of movement to transform our health, our lives and our communities.
