- Wednesday, June 27 12:30pm-3:30pm $35 fee, To register contact the ODC Dance Commons Front Desk at (415) 863-9830 x100 How do we channel our ideas into a work that feels authentic and universal? How do we get out of our heads and trust our intuition? How do we make work that we care about? In this composition workshop, we will tackle these questions through physical exercises and group discussion. Be prepared to improvise, and to direct others. The class will start with a vigorous warm-up, followed by group devising processes. We are going to move, play some games, observe, and learn from each other. Open to all levels. Catherine Galasso is a choreographer and media artist based in NY and SF. Her works have been performed at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Harvard University’s Carpenter Center, the Bibliotheque National de France in Paris, and the International Theater Festival in Kosovo. She has created evening-length works for a former Wall Street bank vault (Show Me The Money, 2009), and a three-story Victorian mansion-turned-art gallery (Memorandum of Understanding, 2011). Her most recent work, Bring On The Lumiere! inspired by cinema inventors the Lumiere Brothers, premiered at ODC and toured to New York’s Joyce SoHo and Cornell University. As a director and teacher, she brings with her tools from her experiences working with Robert Wilson, Ralph Lemon, and Yoshiko Chuma.
