In conjunction with Halfway to Dawn
Co-presented by BAM and Mark Morris Dance Group
For dancers at the intermediate-advanced and advanced levels

Choreographer David Roussève and members of his company REALITY lead a workshop mirroring the development process used to create Halfway to Dawn, based on the music of Billy Strayhorn and Duke Ellington. After a brief warm-up, dancers begin to grasp the work’s unique fusion of modern, postmodern, and jazz dance vocabularies and learn the dynamic, full-bodied phrase material. Workshop participants then manipulate that material to make their own dance and theatrical phrases, generating gestural and task-based movement based on the emotional currents of the music.
