Choreography as Premonition//The Imaginary Event of Presentation: A Movement Workshop with Katie Lyle and Shelby Wright

Sunday, March 7, 12:00 - 1:30 p.m. CT

Facilitated on Zoom. Registration required; space is limited.

Presented by Dancing with Tantalus artist Katie Lyle and dancer-choreographer Shelby Wright, this workshop will combine movement and drawing with an emphasis on collaboration, revision, and choreography. The workshop asks us to consider how our movements change in relation to one another, how we might experience duality in our own bodies, and the difference between watching and feeling movement. How might we move and work in a space that is both public and private? How might our movement embody "doing something" - thinking, revising, or starting over?

Katie Lyle and Shelby Wright have worked collaboratively since 2015. Together, their work spans visual art, performance, dance, creative writing and installation. In 2018, they created A Room to Perform, a work that explores how a structure might actively become part of a performance, letting its shape and form determine the way their movements were obscured and cropped. Lyle and Wright are both based in Toronto.
