Workshop Series + Audition: Ilvs Strauss

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

MAR 20 / 12-3PM Velocity Founders Studio 1621 12th Ave $20 / $17 MVP This workshop will streamline the two main concepts from the March IMP Series: Crude Gestures (cultivated movement birthed of thought and word impulses) and Annihilation Storytelling (radiating the core element of your story and focuses on the melding of the ideas into a performative act). Explore the dialogue between words and physical movement to create new intersections of depth and meaning. Writing and movement exercise abound. The workshop is open to all ages and all levels of experience. Please bring a journal and writing implement. This will double as an audition for the full length of the Not Solo Anymore piece "Manifesto," to be performed at Velocity Dance Center, May 22 – 24 (note: Memorial Day Weekend). Looking for: 2-10 performers. Dancers + non-dancers are encouraged to apply. Rehearsals will be in April, continuing through May. Times TBD, approximately 20 hours of rehearsal (depending on your role). Choreography will be partially group generated through a series of exploratory exercises. Things ilvs wants you to know: You will be paid, but it won’t cover your rent. You will most likely wear a giant costume and crawl around on the ground. You might be asked to perform partially nude. You will have had either dance experience or a deep familiarity with your body and willingness to move it. ilvs strauss is an analytical chemist turned multi-disciplinary performance artist and theater tech living and making work in Seattle. Her art ranges from haiku poetry, to anamorphic outdoor sculptures, illustrated storytelling (aka Slide Shows), to narrated dance performance. As Technical Director / Lighting Designer she has worked for Pat Graney, KT Neihoff, Salt Horse, and Cherdonna, and is currently the TD at Velocity Dance Center. These days, she is working on an evening length of her solo piece, Manifesto, which was listed in Dance Magazine’s BEST of 2014 list.
