Weave residency June 2018

Weave
Residency
June 2018
O’Shaughnessy at St. Catherine University
Please join Minneapolis choreographer Rosy Simas (Seneca) for open rehearsals and movement workshops – FREE at O’Shaughnessy Auditorium at St. Catherine’s University in St. Paul.Simas is creating Weave, a dance project drawn from the interwoven and interdependent nature of our world. In Weave, individual and embodied stories are the vibrant threads that mesh in a performance woven of story, dance, moving image, and sound.
Open Rehearsals are an opportunity for the community to witness and discuss Simas’ movement practice based on intention and attention. Over time the practice will become a dance work to be shared with audiences in St. Paul, Maui, Washington D.C., Oahu, Philadelphia, Birmingham and the Seneca Allegany territory.
Movement Workshops dive into the practice of attention through the senses and movement. Rosy Simas and Sam Mitchell will bring their unique approaches to dance and movement in these hour long workshops. No experience necessary. Wear loose comfortable clothing. We will be barefoot during the workshops.
These open rehearsals invite you to witness the practice and to participate in discussion on the creative process.Public Events at The O’Shaughnessy–All Events are Free

Weave is being created in residencies at The Cowles Center for Dance and the Performing Arts (Minneapolis), McKnight Fellowships Residency at MANCC (Tallahassee), O’Shaughnessy Auditorium at St. Catherine University (St. Paul), and The Ordway Center for the Performing Arts (St. Paul).
Weave is made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project and The MAP Fund, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and additional funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
The St. Paul iteration  and world premiere of Weave is funded in part by The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, as part of its Knight Arts Challenge, a community-wide contest funding ideas that engage and enrich Saint Paul through the arts. Weave is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board and the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. Major support for Weave from the Joyce Awards, a program of the Joyce Foundation.
Site-specific iterations of Weave will be created for St. Paul (The Ordway), Birmingham (The Alabama Dance Council), Washington D.C. (Dance Place), Maui (Maui Arts & Cultural Center), Allegany Seneca Territory (The Seneca-Iroquois National Museum Cultural Center), Oahu (PA’I Arts & Culture Center), and Philadelphia (Intercultural Journeys).
