Contemporary Improvisation for Black Men-CIBM is a physical exploration of the intersections between thought and movement, the real and the representational, the past and the present, freestyle and improvisation, flow and disruption. In this class, the exploration of presence as multiple embodied states that generate empathetic choices in making life survival skills, group support, dances and dance performance informed by the African Diaspora in both a historical and contemporary moment. Participants will use movement improvisation, text, and other creative strategies to reflect on issues that concern them as black males. This exploration culminates with dialogue about the ideas that emerge. “DEEPEN YOUR INTER-GROOVE & building communities.”
If you identify as Black and Male, this is a SAFE SPACE. We welcome all ages, abilities, and male fluidity.
