Isadora Workshops / Aug 8th to 18th, 2012 / Oakland, CA

  • Beta Platinum

    This August I'll be teaching two Isadora based workshops in Oakland, CA. Full details are at
    August 8th-9th is a basic Isadora workshop with a focus on performance.
    August 14th to 18th is a combined composition intensive and intermediate Isadora workshop called The Extended Now.**

    The Extended Now** explores technical and compositional strategies for integrating live and interactive media into the creation of site-specific installation and performance.  The 5 day workshop is taught in tandem with choreographer Mary Armentrout’s inside out / upside down performance workshop. The first half of the week we will focus on the development of technical skills with an emphasis on using live video / sound / sensors with Isadora. The second half of the week we will take that knowledge to create short site-specific interventions in and around the giant industrial landscape / site-specific lab that is the Sunshine Biscuit Factory complex.
