Travail-le!

If you’re a performer, it’s very possible that, while watching the dancers of Montréal’s Compagnie Marie Chouinard, you may not have a clue how they’re accessing their power or organizing their internal experience.  They’re so aggressive and immediate–feral, even–that it seems some incredible shortcut must have been discovered between concept and execution. Lucky for everyone, they’re not hoarding secrets: Saturday, April 18 at 11:00am, a workshop on choreography will be held at the Museum of Contemporary Art for advanced and professional dance makers, led by a member of CMC. Only 15 bucks gets you in, which is knocked down to ten if you’ve already purchased your ticket to one of the compagnie’s two Chicago performances (the evening of and the day before). I don’t have much info on how the workshop will be structured or what you might want to be prepared for, but one thing is for certain: There’s no way in hell it will be boring.

Amazing, possibly NSFW image (depending on where you W) after the jump.
