WORKSHOP WITH JEANINE DURNING
Rooted in Durning’s practice of “nonstopping,” this all-levels, all-people workshop is designed to deepen attention to subconscious thoughts, feelings and perceptions. By uncensoring movement and accepting “not-knowing” and “the not-yet” as generative states, Durning guides participants to new tools for choice-making in the moment, and challenges presumed relationships to presence and performance. Group and solo exercises employ a circular series of nonstop moving, speaking and writing to foster a closer understanding of the inherent structures of thinking (eclectic, idiosyncratic, and often paradoxical) that become manifest as actions, behaviors and communications—as well as performance choices, compositions and choreographies.
ALL LEVELS, ALL PEOPLE, ALL DISCIPLINES WELCOME
Bring a basic, unfiltered desire to move, a willingness to articulate uncensored thought, and a notebook.
