Ms. Hicks company CHIMERAlab Dance Theatre
Classes CHIMERAlab: Contemporary Butoh a unique movement lab using poetic body vocabulary including Butoh, Shintaido, The Viewpoints, modern, developmental movement and theater, to develop new work. This workshop is for those interested in traveling deep into movement consciousness in context of dance theater. Topics of exploration may include memory, embodying imagery, awareness training, translating poetry to movement, puppetry techniques for the body, meditation, physical training and choreography.

Imagination informs our choices. We dance from metaphors, colliding worlds and open to a river of thoughts and feelings. We move from the elements, from emptiness, from strength and from turmoil. We move from poetry and from dreams.

This class is open to anyone who is interested. Exercises can be modified for various levels of experience or body conditions. Students work as a group, solo and in partners. Classes may include student showin
