Sign up to join the HIVE on November 19 with Tehillah Hartmann!
the HIVE offers local dancemakers a choreography lab to experiment with material for a work-in-progress. It also provides dancers an opportunity to work with new choreographers and learn about their process. The program, a collaboration between Dance Source Houston and Houston Ballet, gives choreographers studio space in Houston Ballet’s Center for Dance and gathers a group of 25 dancers to help local artists explore movement. Dancers must be 18 and older.
Tehillah Hartmann's upcoming new work seeks to explore and solidify the connection between value/worth and identity/purpose. At the HIVE, spoken text will be used to motivate individual movement studies and develop short synopses with other dancers. She will teach phrase work and give participants the task of manipulating the material to create new partnerships and connecting points. The process is experimental, collaborative, and goal-oriented.
November 19 | 2-4pm | Center for Dance, 601 Preston
Cost: $5. Fee must be paid upon registration at https://www.artful.ly/store/events/13814. All fees paid will go to the choreographer.
