Awakening Stories Within
The material for this workshop is inspired by Simas’ creative process used to develop “We Wait In The Darkness,” a solo about the maternal line of her Seneca family. In this workshop we will use somatic movement explorations to investigate stories within, stories stored in cells and DNA. Students are guided through methods to turn these explorations into choreography.
