FREE EVENT • Learn about “Shyamali: Sprouting Words,” our 2017 production, and how to watch abstract, metaphoric dance. Our Audience Empowerment Workshop/Open Rehearsal happens Thursday, August 17, 6:30pm-8pm.
This event is FREE, open to the public, and takes place at the Frey Theater in The O’Shaughnessy complex at St. Catherine University, 2004 Randolph Avenue, Saint Paul.
ADT dancers will perform excerpts from “Shyamali.” These excerpts will alternate with questions and conversations between the workshop attendees and the dancers. An opportunity for attendees to participate with the dancers in making movement from “Shyamali” will end the workshop.
As an option to help you make the most of the Audience Empowerment Workshop, we invite you to review the four short videos that describe the foundations of our artistic practice, Yorchha, Shawngram, Aanch, and Daak: http://
