DanceLAB Workshops

The Danceworks DanceLAB offers workshops throughout the year to further the education of local dance artists and give dancers of any genre the tools needed to create fresh, sophisticated and inventive choreography. Guest artists are space grant recipients, as well as national and local choreographers.

Come alone or with fellow dancers. Dancers will be paired up and taught choreography from the concert, Two 2 Duet. Join us and together, we will continue to explore the duet!

 

In 2017 and 2018, Christal Wagner and Gina Laurenzi launched a project exploring the relationship between the performers onstage and their collaborators’ medium. In this hour-long performance, Two 2 Duet, they wove together a series of dance solos and duets that respond to the auditory experience, the visual experience, and the duo’s movement invention. Through seven kinetic works of poetry, music, film, original composition, visual art, and movement, they explored the idea of the duet. Now, they’d like to share their movement with you.
