Shannon is back! Shannon's NW roots lead her back here about once a year and we are incredibly lucky to host her class and her work (check out the shared evening of work with Shannon and Tahni)
The workshop: During this class we will use our individual and group body to make and unmake ourselves. Working with disorientation, quick shifts of attention, endurance and group dynamics, we will move away from language and towards embodied comprehension. We will push to the edges but also question “edge” as a boundary or distinction between ourselves, others and the space we occupy.
Saturday July 21st | $10 for those who go to the performance | $15 for those who don't
Shannon Stewart is a choreographic artist who splits her time between New Orleans and Europe. Her company Screaming Traps explores the intersection of dance practices, embodied identities and social choreographies. Shannon has an MFA in Interdisciplinary Performance from Tulane University and a BA in Urban Design from the University of Washington. She's proposed an open source method called Body Based Theory Practice and presented this research in dance symposiums in the US and Europe.
Shannon’s performative work has been presented by the Work Room (ATL), Catapult/Definitive Figures Feminist Performance Festival, Marigny Opera House, IDOCDE at ImpulsTanz (Vienna), On The Boards, the Risk/Reward Festival, Velocity Dance Center, Movement Research (NYC), Pivot Arts (Chicago), Cowles Center (Minneapolis), Philadelphia Dance Projects, as well as in parades, living rooms, bars, film houses, galleries, and online. Shannon is fortunate to be sharing work in the PNW because she is a member of the "oh shit bermuda triangle" which proposes radical non-symmetrical (reciprocated) advocacy.
