Improvisation and Composition Workshop with Judith Sanchez Ruiz
December 16 – 17 2009
In conjunction with REPLICA, Judith Sanchez Ruiz leads a special movement workshop at the New Museum. Students with dance experience are encouraged to apply.
By learning to listen to your body, you will learn how to work body and mind in time and space. You will learn to make creative choices in the flow of the performance through the practice of dance improvisation.
“My art comes from a busy mind. It is a dance full of subtext and images, poems that deliver themselves through my body. I dance with my organs to understand who I am. While I love improvisation as a medium to express the content of a fresh and spontaneous art, I pursue a choreography that deals with the radical transformation of qualities and textures in relation with body architectures and geometrical shapes. My works juxtapose technically demanding choreography with open space of improvisation.”
