Workshop – “Body Percussion Possibilities” (UW Students Only)

April 12 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

In “Body Percussion Possibilities,” a workshop with IVAP artist Omari ‘Motion’ Carter, participants will work with the rhythmic body. This session will introduce participants to the art of body percussion in an aim to bridge the gap between dance and musical language. Participants will explore rhythmic techniques from across the globe (Brazil, America, South Africa, UK), stimulating an awareness of the body, control of movement and muscular strength, coordination, and balance.

Exercises, warm ups, and games will help improve concentration, perception, and memory alongside musicality, composition, listening, and ensemble work. Participants will gain practical experience with tools that inject an essence of hybridity, musicality, and joy into their ongoing practice. The workshop convenes during Dance/Theatre 259 – Collaborative Arts Performance Lab: Devising Collaborative Performance Through Hip Hop Arts and is open to UW students.

Shoes worn in studio must not be street shoes or worn outside during the winter.
