*FULL* Movement Workshop: re-connect

Saturday, March 5, 2022
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Free; registration required

In conjunction with our loan of Félix González-Torres’ installation Untitled (L.A.) in Ruminations on Memory, join us for the cathartic experience of collaborative dance making and performing. The re-connect workshop is open to movers of all abilities and taps into our desire to connect with ourselves and others as a pathway to hope and healing. Facilitators guide participants through both written and movement prompts as part of the creative process to develop an original group dance piece. Participants are invited to perform the movement created in this workshop as part of the community event Reflect/Connect on March 12 at noon on the Museum’s plaza.

To ensure everyone’s safety, all attendees are required to provide proof of vaccination, or a negative lab-conducted COVID-19 test taken within 48 hours, and to be masked at all times inside the building.

About the instructors:

  • Kathleen Meyers Leiner has been teaching, performing, and creating dance for 40 years, and draws inspiration from literature, social issues, and personal stories to develop workshops, performances, and participatory events. She is the Dance Program Director and Chair of Fine Arts at the Asheville School. Kathy holds a Master of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary Arts: Choreography & Visual Arts from Wilson College.
  • Asheville Contemporary Dance Theatre (ACDT) is a non-profit professional dance company created in 1979. We believe that everyone is a dancer and through art and inspiration, the company illuminates the points of intersection that exist on both intellectual and emotional levels, and our diverse repertory reflects both traditional and experimental forms of modern dance.
