Moving Memory investigates the crossroads of movement and text. Participants will learn tools for creating and developing a personal movement vocabulary along with exercises for crafting evocative writing. Techniques include Bartenieff Fundamentals, Liz Lerman's Toolbox and Paloma's Rooted/Reaching movement approach and more. This workshop is designed for performers, directors, writers, multi-disciplinary and self-generating artists. No formal dance/writing training is necessary, just a willingness to explore, create and have fun.
Paloma McGregor teaches around the country, specializing in workshops that explore and deepen the connections between writing and dance. A journalist-turned-choreographer, she uses the intersection of text and movement to unearth personal voice, build community and animate vision. Her choreography has been presented throughout New York, including at The Kitchen, Harlem Stage, Brecht Forum and Tribeca Performing Arts Center, as well as across the country.
