Workshop Description:

Movement & Media (Designing Video, Projection, & Site-Specific Dance) - Scotty Hardwig

This workshop will take a creative approach to the lenses through which we see the performing body, including the photographic, filmic, sonic, and visual. With a multimedia approach, we’ll aim to develop two group works including a video study filmed in the Utah environment for the first week, and a live movement study with projection and sound design as a group for the second week. Some classes will take place in the studio, and some will take place in the Marriott Library's computer lab spaces.

Week 1: Site-Specific & Video
Starting with exercises in site-specific movement practices and outdoor work, we’ll look at how to frame these explorations through a photographic or filmic eye. Then we will start developing a group choreographic structure or idea to video in an outdoor space. We'll try to film this on the first weekend,so these participants would need to be available for a film shoot in an environmental location either the Saturday or the Sunday of the first weekend (transportation will be organized).

Week 2: Projection & Sound
For this week, we’ll look at how to design and frame live performance events through the use of projection and sound; an introduction to Ableton Live and Isadora will help develop concepts for a group choreographic or improvised structure using live projections.

Residency at Middlebury Monterey (April 2 - 8)

This April I'll be in residence at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies in Monterey, CA working with Andrea Olsen and graduate students from a variety of disciplines. We'll be creating a video work centered around concepts of water and coastal ecology for the National WaterDance Project 2018.

Currently in pre-production -- screening dates TBA

Teaching @ Earthdance - Sunday, April 30, 2017

APRIL 30 - 3:30-5:00PM || 5:00 - 7:00PM JAM

@ earthdance, 252 Prospect Street -- Plainfield, MA 01070

Landscape | States  : we'll start off with an exploration of tone, and the play between levels of body tone as a platform for inviting fluidity of being and responding. For the end of this session we'll move between periods of internal meditative noticing, examining the landscape inside, and then envision | move into | bring those states in the external world. We'll try to encourage changeable states, examining the relationship between a peaceful / responsive relationship with self, others, and the world around us.
