The Talk-Through: If you've never been to an Underscore, you will *need* to attend the Talk-Through to learn the score. I will also encourage those who haven't heard the talk-through recently to attend, as there may be new information or perspectives. Please bring a notebook and pen to write down notes for the Talk-Through.

The Underscore is a framework for practicing and researching dance improvisation that Nancy Stark Smith has been developing since the early 1990's.  It is a score that guides dancers through a series of "changing states," from solo deepening/releasing and sensitizing to gravity and support; through group circulation and interaction, Contact Improvisation engagements, opening out to full group improvisation with compositional awareness, and back to rest and reflection.

Cost of Underscore: $10.  Talk-Through is free!
