MOTION Dance Theatre, the brainchild of WNC-born choreographer Nick Kepley (currently ballet master at Ballet Austin), offers a three week residency to professional dancers and choreographers which culminates in two performances (July 11 and 12) at Diana Wortham Theatre.
In advance of that, “Doors Open” is a sneak-peek into the dancers and choreographers at work. Kepley suggests that those who are interested pack a lunch and spend the noon hour observing a working rehearsal and asking questions of the artists. The public is invited into the studio “to experience dance-making up close and personal.”
Sessions are held on Fridays, June 27 and July 4, noon-1 p.m. Limited seating. To reserve a space, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 917-627-9345.
MOTION Dance Theatre presents Innovative Motion: A practical application of the choreographic process on Sunday, June 29, 3-4:30 p.m.
The 1 1/2 hour workshop, held at the Manheimer Room in the Reuter Center, “specific methods utilized by choreographers across the globe and how their concepts can be applied back to nearly any job in any career field,” according to a press release. Kepley will lead the event, with performances by MOTION dancers. Tickets to the July 11 and 12 performances will be raffled off.
