Workshop – “Urban Tones: Expanding Animations”

April 11, 2022 @ 12:30 pm - 2:10 pm


In “Urban Tones: Expanding Animations,” a workshop with IVAP artist Omari ‘Motion’ Carter, participants will explore elements of the dance form “Animation” (a subgenre of Popping). From Slow-Motion to Ticking, Gliding and isolations, this workshop will explore how these ways of moving can be expanded upon to develop narrative and character-driven dance performance. Going beyond the technique, the session fuses pedestrian action, character work and animation dance conventions to explore how these dances, influenced by animated stories on screen, can be the starting point for telling stories for all styles of movement makers. “Urban Tones: Expanding Animations”  takes place during Dance 455 – Dance Composition III. Open to students and International Symposium on Screendance attendees of all styles and abilities. Shoes will be removed to participate.
