Moving with Objects and ArchitectureWorkshop & Screening with Zach Morris
Workshop: Choreography for the Camera
Tuesday May 3rd 7-10pm
In this workshop, multi-disciplinary artist Zach Morris will lead participants through a process of creating site-specific movement works for the camera. A grab-bag of choreographic tactics focus on working with the architecture of a site to pull images and meaning from its components. Techniques for researching a site and exploring its possibilities in movement; finding hidden meaning in a space and developing methods to amplify it; and issues of staging, storyboarding, and choreographing for the camera will be introduced through a series of focused exercises.
