Join us in person on Friday, April 15, at 2 pm, for a movement and dance workshop. Maya Gmach ’22 will facilitate a close looking exercise with Iva Gueorguieva’s Probably Profoundly Past Grand Isle, and then lead a guided dance improvisation, where audience members will use their bodies to respond to the artwork. This will be followed by a short, choreographed performance from Francesca Griffin ’23, created in response to the artwork. The session concludes with a short discussion of how movement can help us see art in new ways. Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing and shoes.

This workshop is the second of three in a series organized by Maya Gmach ’22 as her capstone project for her 2021-22 Meg Reitman Jacobs ’63 Endowed Internship. The one-year, pre-professional internship for a Skidmore junior or senior focuses on education and public programming. The unique experience functions as a bridge between college and the world beyond.
