CREATIVE AGE: DANCE AND MOVEMENT

Inspired by exhibition Dreams Unreal: The Genesis of the Psychedelic Rock Poster. Taught by Adrian Moore Trask and Sadie Gelb, Keshet Center for the Arts. Workshop fee: $80

Keshet's Dance and Movement Workshop will explore the themes, music, and art included in the Dreams Unreal exhibition at the Albuquerque Museum, providing a fun and meaningful way for older adults to connect with the art and each other. Participants will learn concepts and tools of contemporary dance improvisation and performance, exploring elements of body, space, time, effort/energy, and relationship.

The Albuquerque Museum's Dreams Unreal exhibition— formal elements and imagery of the psychedelic posters, the emotion of the music, and the ideas and historical context provided in the exhibition text—will serve as inspiration for movement invention, creative exploration, discussion, and connection. Work(s) will be collaboratively created, rehearsed, polished, and made ready for a unique performance experience within the museum gallery.

Registration is required.
