The Underscore, December 2011

Please come join us in practicing the Underscore!

Saturday, December 10, 2011

  • 12-12:45pm: Talk-Through at Amante Coffee (4580 Broadway St)
  • 1-4pm: The Underscore at Kelly's Barn (1360 Sumac Ave)

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.

If you've never attended an Underscore, please come!  As Nancy says, "You can't do it wrong."  In order to reap the amazing benefits of this practice, please attend the essential Talk-Through (12-12:45pm) if this will be your first time participating in the Underscore.

Please arrive on time with the intention to "stay in" with us for the entire practice (1-4pm).

Co-hosted by Jennifer Peck.

Cost of Underscore: $7-10 donation.  Talk-Through is free!
