LAB-ARTs is set to launch two workshops in music and dance in downtown Chicago in August 2016. Centered on site-specific collaborative performances, the workshops will mix choreographers, dancers, composers, conductors, and orchestral musicians, as well as improvising musicians and dancers, to create new pieces inspired by Chicago’s vibrant architecture. Participants of both workshops will work alongside experienced master artist-teachers, including some of Chicago’s best contemporary dancers, choreographers, and musicians.
Session 1 (Aug 15-21) devoted to the creation of newly Composed/Choreographed pieces.
Session 2 (Aug 21-27) devoted to Free Improvisation in dance/music.
Look for the official call for participants, including applications and the full list of visiting faculty, in March 2016!
