About the event

Sequins Sequence is a 90 minute workshop led by slowdanger directors anna thompson and taylor knight. This workshop focuses on generating and linking together contemporary floorwork based movement sequences. Participants will be facilitated through repetitive and iterative based movement pathways that focus on somatic sensation, texture and sustainable pathways, building and linking them together as the session goes on to create longer phrases and choreographic sequences. This class is a research based class and allows space for taking time to discover pathways and question how it can evolve and change for each unique mover. 

This practice is best suited for the advanced movement artists and practitioners.

slowdanger BIO:

anna thompson and taylor knight, are co-founders of multidisciplinary  performance entity, slowdanger. slowdanger fuses sound and movement  through improvised contemporary and postmodern dance frameworks using  found material, electronic instrumentation, vocalization, emerging  technology and ontological examination. They recognize their  collaborative work as a non-binary entity that is one body amassed of  multiple bodies in space. Within this system, they work with an engaged  and deepened understanding of energy, synergy, action, gender, time, and  storytelling. slowdanger has been featured at/in Dance Magazine’s ‘ 25  to Watch’, The MoMA, Place Des Arts, Springboard Danse Montreal, The  Andy Warhol Museum, Usine C, Dance Place, The Carnegie Museum of Art and  more. slowdanger has received support from The Foundation for  Contemporary Arts, The Heinz Endowments, The Mid Atlantic Arts  Foundation, The Pittsburgh Foundation, The Greater Pittsburgh Arts  Council and The Opportunity Fund. In 2019 they premiered ‘empathy  machine’ at the Kelly-Strayhorn Theater, Martin E. Segal Center NYC and  Dance Place DC. In 2019, they were Creatives in Residence at the  Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry at Carnegie Mellon and  Performers in Residence at the Carnegie Museum of Art. Currently, they are adjunct faculty in Modern at Point Park University’s Dance  Department, Artists in Residence at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, and 2022 awardees of NEFA/National Dance Project Production Award. www.slowdangerslowdanger.com
