TILT: Help Design a "Levitron" to Disorient Dancers
Ellen Sebring
Sun Jan 16, Mon Jan 17, Fri Jan 21, Sat Jan 22, 10am-05:00pm, Kresge Auditorium

No enrollment limit, no advance sign up
Repeating event. Participants welcome at any session

TILT is a video-dance dealing with a sudden disruption of gravity that throws dancers out of balance. During the four day workshop, we will integrate the TILT video with dancers of Paula Josa Jones Performance Works, developing choreography and lighting. The biggest challenge is to design and build a physical mechanism – the “Levitron” - that will create the shift in gravity for the dancers to perform upon. Workshop will culminate in public Lecture/Demonstration with performance of scenes from TILT. Funded by MIT Council for the Arts.
