Association of Performing Arts Presenters Showcases

Showcasing excerpts from Overflow, Return/Repeat and TOSS.
Overflow is a hypnotic and sculptural dance for six reflecting oceanic currents and rising tide patterns. Return/Repeat reflects on dances performed by Artichoke Dance over it’s 20 year history, excerpting and refashioning highlights into a new work with a new score. TOSS fuses movement, song and dialogue to address the impacts of consumerism and waste using humor and wit.

December 5 - Natural Lotion making Workshop
What does this have to do with dance? Well...everything.
Dance relies on the health of the body as an instrument, as a working tool. We’ve been examining the effects of chemicals on our bodies as well the natural world for some time. As a result of these inquiries, company dancer Malinda Crump began making body products, taking on a mission to replace products laden with petrochemicals with natural formulas in an economical way. Her first experiment with a simple lotion quickly developed into a full line of products to care for skin and hair. In this DO-IT-YOURSELF workshop you’ll learn to make your own natural lotion and take home a jar for use in the cold dry months.  
WHEN: December 5, 1-3pm
WHERE: Artichoke Dance, 121 Sterling Place, Brooklyn, NY
What is TOSS?
TOSS is a new work-in-development that examines consumerism and waste. TOSS is supported in part through a Marion International Fellowship for the Visual and Performing Arts and furthers investigations begun with The Human Mapping Project. The TOSS journey includes conversations, workshops and work-in-progress showings. We began at The Chautauqua Institution in August, continued with workshops at Gibney Dance and the Permaculture Festival, and will be in residence at the Alberta College of Art and Design in November.
