SUD: Southern Identity Across the Globe - Workshop by Breathing Art Company
Sunday, July 29
Open to curious dancers of all levels of experience, ages 16+
Rooted in Breathing Art Company's existing dance work "SUD," this workshop explores questions around Southern identity, both in Italy and across the globe. Breathing Art's Artistic Director Simona de Tullio leads this creative and compositional two hour workshop based on material in the company's piece and participant's original movement ideas. Participants will use the body's natural movement language to explore its capacity to communicate about the workshop's themes. Curious dancers of all levels of experience, amateur to professional, are invited to attend (ages 16+).
