Workshop: AbstractCommercial

Malik Nashad Sharpe

This workshop is unfortunately cancelled.

“AbstractCommercial” is a dance workshop sitting at the intersection of commercial dance’s textural and production values and more abstract choreographic idiosyncrasies, nodding towards a new Avant-Garde movement system. Mixing dance styles from social media like Tik Tok with Post-Contemporary, Hip-Hop, and Pop, this workshop will follow the process of getting ready to perform in a large stadium for millions – but in the imaginary.

Big dancing, big steps, sharp turns, to the music, but with weird tools and shifted values. It will be sweaty.

In association with Union des artistes + Compétence Culture
