We are delighted to sponsor a master class in conjunction with the dance performance, SHOW NO SHOW, a grant supported project that has developed across several months and two continents with in-progress performances in Russia and at American Dance Festival/Culture Mill in the US. It will culminate in a performance at the FRINGE in Philly, next weekend. SHOW NO SHOW is a collaboration between the project director, Gabrielle Revlock, an award-winning performer/dance maker based in NYC who has danced with Lucinda Childs, Susan Rethorst and Jane Comfort. (but formerly from Philly–she choreographed an ensemble work on our students in 2005) and Alexsandr Frolov. a contemporary dancer, choreographer and teacher based in Yekaterinburg, Russia (see bio below).
The class is geared towards intermediate dancers and will include both technique and improv. The dancers will join us for lunch in Haffner afterwards for anyone interested in Russian language or in what’s happening with contemporary dance in contemporary Russia! Questions?
