Heidi LatskyIn this workshop, Heidi Latsky, Artistic Director of Heidi Latsky Dance, will guide participants through exercises from her MARS (mindful activation release study) inclusive practice, which is designed to enhance and deepen performance as a task-based experience.

The warm-up will move into a structured improvisation that is the foundation of Latsky’s choreography ON DISPLAY. A series of movement installations, ON DISPLAY has been disrupting the urban landscape worldwide since 2015. It is an art exhibit where the art is a live sculpture court featuring performers with diverse bodies, abilities, and identities.

This workshop will delve into the essence of these installations, giving participants an opportunity to experience the techniques and intentions behind this very meditative and still work. Attendees then will have an opportunity to actually perform ON DISPLAY from 2:00-3:00pm in Academic Commons of Goddard Library.

Individuals of all abilities are welcome. No prior performance or dance experience is required. All participants must bring simple, bright white garments to wear during the installation. The workshop will last approximately 2 hours.

Admission to the workshop is free and open to the public. Reserve your spot today by emailing HigginsSchool@clarku.edu. Please provide your contact information and specify whether you are a Clark University student, faculty, or staff member, if applicable.
