Body Eclectic: The Poly-Cultural Contemporary in Movement Practice is a dance workshop that places three distinct movement disciplines — house dance, capoeira, and contemporary release technique — into a direct dialogue with one another. Through physical investigations of each form and culminating phrase material that embodies all three, participants are asked to draw connections between the qualities and intentions of each form as well as, perhaps, have cause to calculate or unpack their own personal artistic lineage in the process.
Chafin Seymour will also share movement material and rehearsal video of his recently-commissioned dance work for The Jose Limon Dance Company.
