Dance Exchange from Washington, DC will be hosted by Trillium Oct. 4-6 for a weekend of events whose variety and originality is a testament to their mission of breaking the boundaries of traditional performance with experiments in movement.
Excerpt and lecture from “How to Lose a Mountain,” a performance piece based on Dance Exchange Artistic Director, Cassie Meador’s ambitious 500 mile journey from light switch to natural source will be showing on The Lewis stage Saturday evening at 7:30. Admission is $6.
Cassie Meador will also be leading a Moving Field Guide in connection with the folks at Freshwater Folk Festival, giving participants the opportunity to stimulate their senses and reflect on the environment as a beautiful, complex space that they can discover and influence in a positive way. This free event will meet at 1 p.m. at the Fish Hatchery in White Sulphur Springs.
An advanced dance/choreography workshop will be offered for artists and teachers Friday evening 4-5:30 at The Lewis Theater. The fee of $30 includes both the advanced and community workshops, a total of five hours, as well as admission to “How to Lose a Mountain.”
Community Dance Workshop, open to the interested general public will take place Sunday afternoon 1-4 p.m. at the Lewis Theater also. The fee is $20 and includes admission to “How to Lose a Mountain.”
